Jonathan D Albert, Barrett Comiskey, Joseph M Jacobson: Transducers and indicators having printed displays. E Ink Corporation, Testa Hurwitz & Thibeault, September 12, 2000: US06118426 (479 worldwide citation)

A process for creating an electronically addressable display includes multiple printing operations, similar to a multi-color process in conventional screen printing. In some of the process steps, electrically non-active inks are printed onto areas of the receiving substrate, and in other steps, elec ...
