AccuPrint enables printing of agency-specific tenprint and palm print cards through two methods:
- Text-based layout files
These files use a simple suite of line and text drawing commands to draw every line and text segment present on the card. The files also allow the use of graphical images and icons.
- Scanned image of a blank card
A blank tenprint card scanned and saved as a TIF or JPEG image can also be used by AccuPrint to regenerate tenprint card graphics. This method is particularly useful for cards with complicated graphics, fonts, or character sets.
AccuPrint supports the printing of full palm with fingers, partial palm, and writer’s palm. It supports the rotation of the palm images, which may be required to match the way in which the palm image should be placed on the card.
Tenprint cards often include a barcode that was stored in the digital form of the card, typically in a Type-2 field of the NIST record. AccuPrint can generate valid barcodes that comply with the code 39 format, the code 128 format and the PDF417 (two dimensional format).
- Dates (month, day, year) that must be rearranged
- Insertion of hyphens or slashes between data
- Check marks in check boxes based on the contents of a demographic data field
