Dear Ms. Kramer,
        We are working with a lithographic printer who is interested in ways to reduce the make-ready they use during printing jobs. This lithographic printing facility has 2 heatset off-set and 1 non-heatset offset presses, which are capable of handling 4 colors.
        Currently they use about 10,000 sheets of paper per run, and would like suggestions on ways to reduce this amount since they feel it is a bit much (also a bit expensive). They print roll to sheet, the three presses are about 20 years old, they do not have automatic registration equipment, tension is properly set, static is properly controlled, the two larger presses have automatic splicers while the smaller press splices manually, and the presses have web break detectors. I do not know the widths of the presses.
        Any suggestions you can make concerning common practices or ways to reduce the amount of make-ready they are using would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your time.
                                Sincerely,
                                Thomas Moffitt
