Kathy... re: flexo de-inking:

I've dealt with both paper mills handling recycled stock as input and
also with flexo printers and never had the question arise. I don't
anticipate any problem recycling flexo-printed stock. If you're
considering UV inks, or UV coated stock, the situation changes a bit.
Recycling may be a bit more difficult for some mills, but normally, UV
materials can be de-inked by means of a floatation cell in the
de-inking system. Absent this process, it could provide a problem.
