 How to print your company logo to a HP Laser Printer

Can someone help me? Currently I print my company's logo to an Xerox Laser
Printer by having a font made of the logo and then download the font to the
printer and then simply select the font and print the characters to produce
the logo using Xerox's XES language.  Can someone tell me if I can do
something similiar with an HP printer or tell me how I can print the logo
on a HP printer?

 How to print your company logo to a HP Laser Printer

Hello
Ive been working with HP's for some time basically:

PCL or Postscript
(PCL is a bit easier but postscript works on different printers.)

It really depends on what form the logo font you've got is.

PS if your still having problems email me.

There is a company in California that I have used that will create a
font that will print the logo.  They place the font on a HP ROM SIMM
that plugs into an empty memory slot in your printer.  You can then
print the logo by sending a standard PCL escape sequence to the printer.

Import your logo into a word processor capable of printing raw PCL to disk.
Place the logo on the page where you want it to be, and print to disk. Copy
the resulting output file to pick. To do so, you will need to develop a import
process that will convert the pick reserved ascii chars to something else
(char(254), char(253)...). We chose to put each reserved char in the pick item
as the hex equivalent, alone on the line like this:

top
001
E.*t300R.&l0S.&l1X.&f1Y.&f0X.&l0O.&l2A.&l1C.&l12E.&l1H.*p224x924Y.*c2132a2b
  0P.*p-100Y.*c0P.*c2a100b0P.*p+2130X.*c0P.*p226x826Y.*c3G.*c2129a99b2P.*p134x
     (more stuff deleted)
002 FE

Once the file is in place you can print is as such:

print char(27):"&f":[macro number]:"Y":
print char(27):"&f0X":
print char(27):"&l0L":

[read in the previously saved record as rec]

max = dcount(rec,char(254))
dim form(max); form = rec
for xx = 1 to max
  stuff =  form(xx)
  if len(xx)  = 2 then
    begin case
      case stuff = "FF" ;dummy= oconv(char(255),"U017E")
      case stuff = "FE" ;dummy= oconv(char(254),"U017E")
      case stuff = "FD" ;dummy= oconv(char(253),"U017E")
      case stuff = "FC" ;dummy= oconv(char(252),"U017E")
    end case
  end else print stuff:
next xx
print char(27):"&f1X"
print char(27):"&f10X":

Once the macro has been loaded you can print it again without loading it to
the printer:

print char(27):"&f":[macro number]:"Y":
print char(27):"&f2X":
print char(27):"(8U":char(27):"(s0p10h12v0s0b3T":char(27):"*p0x0Y":
print char(27):"&l6D":

User exit u017e is known to work in appro. We are having problems with it on
D3, but Pick is working on the problem. This should work on any PCL printer.
Finally, if you have D3, and want a D3 only solution you can store the PCL
file on you Unix or NT file system, and copy it directly to the printer from
there. This means that you do not have to use u017e. You could even store it
as a macro and call it, like the example above with a little extra work. Good
luck.

I think that you can accomplish your aim and much more with a commercial
product called Laser Works from Brock & Associates: 510-317-8140.
