Press release from the issuing company
West Chester, OH, March 2002- Best, a division of Electronics for Imaging, the world leader in imaging solutions for network printing, has donated Best Screenproof, its powerful halftone proofing software, to GATF.

Announcing the donation, Mark Geeves, Best USA general manager, commented: “Best software, when used with the EPSON Stylus Pro 7600 printer, enables printers to create halftone proofs which not only accurately represent the final printed product, but meet SWOP certification standards.
