One thing that I have a feeling will be coming up is about wiping plates before printing. Some people don't feel they have a good print unless it is completely clean, and unless they spend a lot of time between each print wiping in areas they want to shine through it is a waste of time IMHO. Plate tone, the little film of ink that clings to the plate after a wiping can add a lot to a piece. Don't be afraid to let that show.
