Usually the printing on bags is accomplished via flexographic (not
gravure) printing.  Do you have specific information on the type of
plastic  substrate, the type of ink being used, and what the
application is?  Did you really mean to say "spraying"; neither flexo
nor gravure printing uses a spray process.

For P2 info re. printing, check the Web site for the Printers' 
National Environmental Assistance Center (PNEAC) at www.pneac.org, or
call the new toll-free helpline at 1-888-USPNEAC.
