Wow, you must not be in Kansas (or Missouri) anymore!
For 4 years I've been looking for a printer in the St. Louis area
that'll do this and haven't found one!
Yes, I can find typesetters, etc., but not print shops. The closest I've
come is giving a diskette of postscript (FrameMaker) files to a printer who
then outputs it on his 1200x1200 printer and then makes printing plates
from that! The charge? $3.00 per page. For a 200 page manual, that's $600.00
per job (just to get the originals output, not for the printing itself).
Can you give me this printer's name and number so I can call him/her?
Maybe they'll work long-distance. Thanks.

BTW, this is the type of work I do.
