    G 7 certification

    Just piling on... For solid ink densities GATF supplied a High/Lo ink density reference. That eliminated instrument variations. Great idea. If you imaged plates from linear film and printed using ISO conforming ink hues to the specified densities then you would automatically achieve grey...
