What it means by printing multiple copies
Printing multiple copies implies that two or more papers are printed at the same time by only one printer. This is only possible by the use of impact printers such as a dot-matrix and a daisy wheel printer because they have special hammers that produce characters on a piece of paper. And behind every paper, there is a coupon copy that produces characters on another paper.
This type of printing is majorly done where monetary transactions are carried out such as a bank.
For example; when paying school fees through a bank, the bank produces three copies of receipts (whitish, blueish and pinkish) in color. One copy for the bank, another for the school and the last one for your own records. To produce these receipts (vouchers/slips), the bank prints them in multiple copies using impact printers.
What it means by printing multiple pages
Printing multiple pages is a situation where printers automatically make characters on a piece of paper (one paper at a time) but automatically pulls the next paper in a series once the current is over, this process repeats until the printing task is accomplished.
Printing multiple pages depends on the printing mechanism of the printer. There are those printers that can only print one side of the page at a time and others reverse the page to print on the other side. It is called back to back printing. Any type of printer can handle multiple page printing, however the desk-jet printer and laser-jet printers are preferred for this job because of their printing speed.
