    Re: Contact Printing Frames

    I just received a shipment today, and now have the Argentum contact printing frames in stock in the banquet sizes. The actual image areas are:

    25x56cm (9.8" x 22") for 7x17 and 8x20
    36x56cm (14.1"x22") for 12x20

    I can also confirm that backs of the banquet frames are three piece (two hinges) with three springs - as requested.

    I have another shipment on the way that will include the standard size frames:

    24x30cm nominal (25x31cm = 9.8" x 12.2" actual)
    30x40cm nominal (31x41cm = 12.2" x 16.1" actual)

    That shipment should be arriving in about 7 - 10 days.

    I'll try to post some photos of the banquet format contact printing frames this weekend.

    Just thought I'd post a brief update on the status of these beautifully made Argentum contact printing frames.

    Argentum has redesigned their web site. The PDF file for their contact printing frames can now be found here.

    Here's a few small images of what the frames look like:







    Really Big Cameras has the following sizes in stock:

    24x30cm nominal (25x31cm = 9.8" x 12.2" actual) - $219.00 + shipping
    30x40cm nominal (31x41cm = 12.2" x 16.1" actual) - $249.00 + shipping

    and for the 7x17 and 8x20 formats:

    25x56cm (9.8" x 22") - $249.00 + shipping

    Re: Contact Printing Frames

    It appears there may be some interest in top quality contact printing frames for the 20x24 format. Argentum doesn't currently offer this size, but if there is sufficient interest, I'm sure they'd be willing to make a batch.

    I won't know the details on pricing until I speak with them and determine the batch size to produce. But, for now assume the price will be about 1.5x (give or take) the prices of the 40x50cm and 12x20 (36x56cm) frames. So, likely somewhere around $450 + shipping. If you would be seriously interested in purchasing a quality 20x24 contact printing frame in the $450 + shipping price range, please post here, or shoot me a PM.

    These are really well made, thoughtfully designed, beautiful contact printing frames. I 'd love to see them available in the mammoth 20x24 size.

    Kerry, I can't find these frames on your site. Are they still available? If so, in what sizes? Bill Barber
