Material used: Polaroid material (manufactured for Archival Color, Charlie
Berger's original company).
The material was originally designed to print halftone separations. They
were forced to use screens in excess of 500 line to eliminate a moire type
effect which happened due to the relief.
We have successfully made prints from contone separations. I use a
Crosfield 645IS to scan and produce separations.

Evercolor uses the Agfa Proofing system with two colors modified for
permanence. They use an excellent stochastic screen. The prints are
excellent, but have strange blacks (the reflectance). They are by no means
carbon or Carbro II (as he used to call it when he used Charlie's
UltraStable, which he abandoned for the Agfa process).
We are doing true continuous tone carbon prints. Do you think anyone cares?
