Re: [PPLetterpress] Re: Photopolymer versus linoleum block
This makes sense.
My experience has been that the amount of time that the paper is out of
the box can be treacherous, so my concern was how is this managed on a
motor driven press. I have a student who wants to learn the process and
she has a C&P. I wasn't sure how this would work.

The press moves fast enough that I can feed and print the stack without any noticeable drying. I usually print on heavy printmaking papers which seem to dry fairly slowly.
