Default So what's the maximum line screen for cold-set web on newsprint?

Our newspaper prints on a 45 year Goss Urbanite web offset press.

On 45 gsm newsprint.


We just moved to 150 lpi for screens, and the printer did a proof of concept 200 lpi test yesterday after our run was over. The 200 line doesn't look as nice as the 150 (some filling in in the shadow, and tints can appear blotchy), and they're trying to decide whether the effort to tweak their curves is worth it (my opinion is "no"). The 150 line is incredible.

150 lpi on newsprint... I remember being amazed we could hold 100.

And yes, Peter... I'll send you a sample. <ggg> Anyone else?

The same printer has abandonded stochastic on their heaset press and gone to 200 lpi conventional. It's MUCH nicer, holds color better throughout the curve.
