Handmade Contact Printing Frames
£ excl. VAT
Contact Printing Frames are used for most alternative photographic processes in which a large-format negative is exposed in contact with a positive carrier:
Contact copies on printout paper (albumen prints, platinum and palladium prints, oil and bromide prints, carbon prints, etc.) It brings the negative into direct contact with the paper carrier, pressing them firmly together across the entire surface, without any air bubbles. Since high-class printers often work with textured artist paper, the printing frame must also be able to bring textured paper into the closest contact with the negative. In this case possible variation of pressure is extremely useful.
A good printing frame renders expensive vacuum presses unnecessary. Handmade by Lotus View Camera these beautifully designed CPF are meant for practitioners for whom the existing products are too feeble. Lotus View Camera contact printing frames are manufactured of waxed cherrywood with a split back for better handling (you can check your print without moving it) with anodized black springs and also two aluminium bars where you slip the springs. The back is covered with dense felt.
It will last for a lifetime and will please your eyes as well as your demands for perfect functioning.
