Variotone does not lith. This is the only downside if you want to call it this but we made this decision on purpose. The choices were to make the best warmtone printing paper on the planet (in Wolfgang Moersch´s and our opinion) and forgett about the lith capability or make it less perfect for regular printing and incorporate the option to have it used as a lith paper as well.
We decided to make it the best printing paper and bring out a lith only paper later. Until then we recomend ADOX Nuance and Fomatone for lith printing.
In England Retro and Silverprint wil be carrying the ADOX Fine Print Variotone.
