I disagree. You can go to pigments, but I've printed pigment ink negs on
a 2000P and have not been satisified with them. I've been getting great
results with the 1280 printer and OEM inks using Pictorico OHP. I'm making
green-colorized digital negs (a la Keith Schreiber at APIS 2003) that
print beautifully in pt/pd and gum. They look very thin, but the greenish
color gives plenty of spectral density for UV processes. I find these work
MUCH better than than orange colored negs, BTW.

Bottom line, if you print the right color, you don't have to lay down a
hell of a lot of ink.
