Title: Method and apparatus for improved bi-directional error for multicolor printers

Abstract: An apparatus and method for forming an image with fluids having different firing velocities from a bi-directional print head results in a reduction in bi-directional misalignment error. The bi-directional misalignment error is reduced by delaying the firing of a drop of the higher velocity fluid on the return swath of the print head.
