Assuming this means gravure tissue, what is the gripe with what Autotype
produces? Quality? Price? Would folks be willing to re calibrate to a
different tissue. It is my understanding that Autotype dearly wants out of
making it. The risk is if I come out with it and they drop it, I am in a
pickle as I have then inherited the mantle. There would be no getting out.

I have heard that some batches are plagued with what are in the trade
termed assh*les, tiny areas that cause asterisk looking pits in the copper.
This i got from a couple of gravure printers here in Santa Fe and also in a
book on gravure from the 30's. I believe they are caused by small pinhole
bubbles in the tissue. With this long a history it may just be an endemic
problem in making the tissue.

Thanks for the comments.
