Just to clarify, he normally uses applications like coreldraw(and
probably quark xpress) that add halftone screen information(for eg. 45
degrees angle for black, with some lpi information). However this
information is not generated or used by latex. If you readup on
PDFWriter vs Distiller by Adobe, this is one of the major differences,
distiller is used for high quality print jobs.

I can only guess that he uses a custom ppd for his printer or
something like that.
