      This was not done for chemistry reasons. You touched on the problem that we
      faced with supplied films: many times they weren't even silver emulsion
      film. For many of our customers, a 'film' means an ink jet or laser
      transparency, which for our processing is unacceptable and potentially very
      costly. Even when the films were on silver, we found the variation in
      quality (through shipping damage or inadequate density) disruptive to our
      workflow. We have much tighter control over the quality and scheduling of
      our printing plates by only using our own films. That's not to say that
      there are many vendors such as yourself who can provide quality film,
      though. I'm sorry you take offense over our policy, but we do this to
      increase reliability of our customers' orders.

      Thanks,

        Indeed, as Fred Goudy liked to say...
        "The old guys [gals] stole all the best ideas"

        The cultural context is our common wealth. All intelligent thought and
        creative effort comes from a shared experience of language --
        symbolic, semantic, and visual.

        There's way too much precocious cleverness and egotistical chest
        beating in the world already.

        On the other hand, don't try to copy my typefaces without asking ;-)
