This work contains research results for different digital printing techniques. We are facing raising demand for printing smaller ammounts of individualised and protected prints (tickets, lottery coupons, value coupons etc.) One element of those products is microtext, and is used for carring many informations on less important documents. Because of digital printing technologies limitations (for example: toner particle size), in print procedure some letters loose their details, and so, they are less legible.
