Re: paper for color photocopying
Rives lightweight paper is very good. A book of mine was printed
letterpress with illustrations a year or so ago. Craig Jenson,
BookLab (1606 Headway Circle Suite 100, Austin TX 78752 (512)837-
0479) did the photocopying and binding. Since both letterpress and
illustration were on the same sheet, Craig struggled a bit. But the
technique was mastered and all in all was very successful.
I have used color photocopying off and on for the last five years.
My first experience, letterpress printing within a color-copied frame
was disasterous (with the deadline a day away, I started printing on
the color-copied sheets. Even though there was no image where the
letterpress was to be, the ink refused to adhere. it is funny now,
I deal with the problems of abrasion by fixing the image with Krylon
Crystal Clear spray (do not use Krylon Matte or others, since as far
as I know, only the Crystal Clear is considered "archival").
