Title: Electrophotographic marking machine having an imageable seam intermediate transfer belt

Abstract: Electrophotographic marking machines having imageable seam intermediate transfer belts. A toner image is produced on a charged photoreceptor. That image is then transferred onto a seamed intermediate transfer belt without regard as to the relative position of the seam. The seam region has good electrical property correspondence with a far region away from the seam and a lateral resistivity greater than 10.sup.8 ohms/square. That transferred toner image is subsequently transferred to a fusing member for fusing.
