Well, true carbon is certainly not easier than EverColor's Agfa Proofing
system and all the Scitex equipment designed for offset reproduction. I'm
sure EverColor doesn't need cold rooms with humidity control, either.
We use a black to achieve the highest possible Dmax and tone modulation.
Our scanner is a CMYK device designed to reproduce full range reproductions
for a very limited print process (offset press).
Now guys, back to my original question.
