I just read an article titled "Computer-to-Plate: Justifying Your
Investment," by Frank Romano, inthe March/April GATFWorld. The
article presents a sobering view on the costs of implementing
computer-to-plate (CTP), but says CTP systems are "reducing rework by
60-70% and improving makeready times 11-25% because the plates have
sharper dots and register faster."

Any direct or indirect experience by Printech subscribers to compare
with these savings? Other reflections on relative costs and
