    Hi I am looking to set up my LINOTYPE HELL LINOTRONIC 330
    In order to make negatives and color separations .
    I will hope to turn the endeavor in to a small business and will like your input!!!
    I have a few questions that hope the community may be willing to answer !

    1 Do you scan your negs or chromes?

    2 do you plan to have negatives made from you Chromes or negatives in order to do contact printing ?
    3 If you in did make negatives from you chromes or enlarge negatives what seizes do you use?

    What printing processes do you normally use?

    Thank you for your help !

    I've seen some very good negatives created thru scanning then printing on Pictorico; so not sure if much of a marked for Image Setter negs. I tried a service a few years ago but the cost was high. Cheaper and more controllable for me to use in-camera negs.

    I agree ! this is more for the person that shoots a smaller neg say 8 X 10 and under and for example wants to do a Platinum print 8X20 or a 3 color carbon
