    I am archiving annual reports, and I find that many of them are
    print with soy ink. Now I like to know if how does soy ink keep up
    in time, like does it fade or what is there a difference with oil ink.

    Subject:      Soy Ink, Follow-Up

    According to the Dept. of Agriculture (DOC AGR.A4:S59) just
    received: soy ink gives a sharper, clearer image and tends to cling
    to paper to prevent rub-off.

    The big difference is that normal ink is distilled from petroleum
    and is non bio-degradable. The US govt doc gives more details --
    enjoy !

    _The Printing Ink Manual_ TP949.B75 1988 (OCLC 17443873) has more
    information on the use of soy ink. :-)

    This per our resident conservation expert: David Pullen (not on
    BITNET yet but you can communicate through me).

    *Besides we grow lots of soy in Florida and we could use the
    economic boost.*
