SectionPostScript printers
PostScript printers use the PostScript® printer control language developed by Adobe Systems Inc. PostScript is a method of describing a page to a printer. The PostScript interpreter in a printer understands the commands and renders the text and objects to the page.

PostScript printers can image a page much faster than a non-PostScript printer. All of PageStream's features may be used with PostScript printers, whereas some features such as shape fills and EPS illustrations require a PostScript printer.

In general, most inkjet printers do not have PostScript interpreters, although some highend models offer a PostScript option. Some laser printers such as Apple's Personal LaserWriter series are Quickdraw printers, while others are PostScript.

We highly recommend PostScript printers or interpreters for use with PageStream. PostScript is almost mandatory for professional use.
