A pagewide printhead for an inkjet printer employs a stretch-to-fit flex circuit with orifices indexed to reference indentations on the flex circuit. Heater resistors disposed on a block of thermally stable insulating material are indexed to reference features accurately located on the block. The reference indentations are fitted to the reference indentations to provide accurate registration of the orifices to the heater resistors.
