Matt... Re: use of soy inks to replace petroleum based

From all the responses I've heard from printers, it's pretty much of a drop-
in. Soy inks may dry somewhat more slowly, and also generally show better
color density than most petroleum inks. Tough to be too specific, because
the term, "soy ink," is not exactly specific. According to last I heard, an
ink can be called soy if it contains more than a small percentage (I think it
was either 10% or 20%) of soy. Therefore, performance of all "soy" inks is
not uniform.
