RE: Fwd: FDA Inks 6/23/98
Scottray and Bob:

Assuming 100% of any SINGLE color, you would need between 1 1/2 and 1 3/4 pounds of ink per 1000 sheets of 25x38 sheet of Mountie Matte. However, it would be unusual (to say the least) to have a project with 100% of ALL FOUR PROCESS COLORS, so you may want to estimate the percentage of each color in the process and multiply that percentage by the above poundage to arrive at the proper amount of ink to order.

Hope this is useful.

Regards, Jeff Adrian
