I'm sorry, my answer in this phase is "I don't exactly" as I need to
create a sample file to ask for some offers.
What is given is the paper to be used, a colored facsimile of old time
paper (rough, thick, etc ).
Generically speaking any typographical device that can print in white on
this support is a potential candidate for me.
I'm really not a professional in this field, just the standard IT guy
with some friends needing support for a no profit organization....
I have been exploring the problem a little bit today, and my
understanding so far is that there is somewhere in the code an "IF
pixel_color = page_color THEN skip ELSE send_to_output" than cannot be
bypassed. If this is true (?) I can put in the output all the colored
pixels of an image by choosing as page_color a color not used in my
document. I'm not sure of this, it is just my current hypothesis.
