Non-impact printer produces text and graphics on paper without actually striking the paper. Printers can also be categorized based on the print method or print technology. The most popular ones are inkjet printer, laser printer, dot-matrix printer and thermal printer. Among these, only dot-matrix printer is impact printer and the others are non-impact printers. Inkjet printers and laser printers are the most popular printer types for home and business use. Dot matrix printer was popular in 70's and 80's but has been gradually replaced by inkjet printers for home use. However, they are still being used to print multi-part forms and carbon copies for some businesses. The use of thermal printers is limited to ATM, cash registers and point-of-sales terminals. Some label printers and portable printers also use thermal printing.

Conclusion

It is simply available for all to see no matter what page they are viewing the site, and instantly For this online form, since it is an online contact form, I have selected a computer made image of a telephone. This is associated with the telephone numbers and the contact form that is found on the page. It also is an easy way to recognise what type of page you're on. Why did you place them in that place on screen? I placed the image up near the top of the page because this space was initially left black; it also is easier to see at the top of the page rather than the bottom. How does user interact with form? The user can easily interact with the form using their mouse. They can click on drop-down boxes to display options to choose from, and they can also click on text boxes to begin typing in them. Generally using their mouse and keyboard they can click and type to fill out the entire form, before clicking on the submit button. Is it intuitive or have you included rollovers / advice There is a piece of information at the top of the form stating that all fields marked with an asterisk require being filled out to send the form. This is sometimes useful information to people and also protects them from accidentally leaving out important fields and not filling them out, as this will return an error and ask the section to be filled in before submitting. Justify colours For the background of the site, I have used an image of a very simply computer made sunny hillside scenery. This brightens up the site and makes it look much more aesthetically please than a solid coloured background for example. Justify text 10.0 Evaluation After researching into Evans enterprise, it is easy to acknowledge many strengths and weaknesses the company has, as well as all the good practises and bad practises they do.
