Pam, I have used Canon LC-201 Color BJ Paper (color copier paper) for some really good output. One guy took the color proof to the catalog printer and they used that (gasp!) for the art -- and it looked 'good enough' for his applications. I have also used it for b&w camera-ready art (with OEM inks) for pricelists, etc. and the printer was really impressed with the quality. Not me, it was what I expected from the epson 1520 ... that's why I bought it last year ... and paid $800.00 <g> ... at least I made myself wait until it came down under a grand ;-) There were no photos in any of the art, but I did the color seperations for the spot colors in b&w after the client proofed the color comp. The printer said he liked the blends from the epson better than he did the normal screens used to create screened areas ... he would rather a non-patterned area of gray than say, a 40% 133lpi screen, and I must say I agree, it seemed easier on the eyes. When printing on the canon paper, there were clean edges and smooth fonts. Using the normal epson driver has been my goal all along, I just wish I had a little more offset-oriented control over the color 'plates' so that I could try some film! My next project will be to try for 'positive' color plates just for kicks. But, I still have my website to get up first ... nothing else is going to get done 'til I get it up ... i swear ... no really ;-) Cheers - Ann K - Please turn off HTML mail features.
