re: P2 for Printing Money

Reply to P2Tech Listserv Inquiry:

To answer part of the original question.  Most paper currency is printed 
with a web fed Rotogravure (a.k.a. Gravure) printing press.  For more 
information about Gravure printing and P2 I suggest you visit the Printers' 
National Environmental Assistance Center's web site at www.pneac.org.

Additionally, having previously worked for a Gravure printing company (no 
we did not print currency) I may be able to answer subsequent specific 
questions regarding process and P2 options.
