Fascinating reading about you guys jumping into the fray to deliver this
greenbar printout.  Congratulations!

FWIW, I have two or three old printers in my attic.  I know at least one is
a little (Epson?) dot matrix.  No memory of the others, but one is a
"large" desktop printer, similar in size (but not printhead) to an IBM
Selectric typewriter.  We're talking about printers that were run on IBM PC
or clones back as far as the early '90's.

But my real reaction was:  Why not fake it?  Modern printers can routinely
print 1200 dpi, so virtually any character set could be created --
including errors such as vertical offsets I believe someone mentioned.
Greenbar paper might be a bit harder to fake, but if any color printers
available in print centers can handle fan-fold, they could print the bars
and the text simultaneously.
