    Can Can a gradient be used with a halftone and not caus problems for the commercial printer?

    LBRodgers Level 1

      When a black and white illustration in Photoshop cc is created to be printed as a line art with halftone image, can a gradient with black and transparent be used with a halftone? I want to keep it a true black and white image to keep cost down. In the past I thought a gradient was made by the printer with 256 shades of gray. Is that still the same or can I combine the two to make subtle shade with halftones. This may seem like a simple question but I'm old school and worked with offset printing. This image with be printed in book for with a POD printer.

       

      Thank you.
