The main ones we do the metallics for always have a damn near 400% black so we found it's not needed. We rarely have issues with trapping, in face I can't remember the last time the pressman blamed some trapping issue on me.
Speed doesn't kill, rapidly becoming stationary is the problem

I'd rather have stories told than be telling stories of what I could have done.

It's more like grip, grip, grip, noise, then spin and 2 feet in and feel shame.
I once knew a plus-sized girl and this pretty much describes teh secks. :rotf:

We run 226 line euclidean for both web and sheetfed. Not sure who came up with that number but it works well for us.

Years back we ran a job at 600 line screen for fun and it came out better than when we ran it with 10 micron Staccato. We had some major curves set up and we had time to experiment.
