Re: [BKARTS] longevity of laser vs. inkjet printing



I suppose one should not point it out, but letterpress inks have lasted for  
at over 600 years on the page. Perhaps there is a point for letterpress, after 
 all. And, indeed, for metal type rather than photopolymer plate, if one 
finds it  gives trouble with small sizes of type.
