If I remember correctly, you finally decided to photocopy these
obituaries. I just thought I'd pass on one tip that has been useful at times.
Photocopiers look at the colors/shades and try to figure out what
setting to automatically use. If the background is white and your
clipping is yellowing, it causes a dilema.
One way to minimize the contrast is to use a sheet of paper behind
the clipping that is close to the color of the clipping. Then the
photocopier sees a more uniform area and can adjust better.
