I regularly submit color transparenccies to a number of regional and national publishers of calendars, greeting cards and magazines and have always sent original transparencies (I know-!!!) in presentation boards for review. I have built a good repore with the editors and photo directors that I usually work with and have not had any problems with lost or damaged photos in the some 20 years that I have been submitting (although the US Post Office has lost a package for me and so has FedEx-which after many frustrating days of searching-finally found). However because of increased liability concernes from some new clients, I am increasingly asked to submit only dupe transparencies first and then send originals if a client wants a photo for use. My lab in Phoenix (Image Craft) which does outstandingly supurb work for me lists dupe 4x5s at about $24 each!! That quiet honestly puts dupes out of the question for me. (My files have some 2500 usable images right now) My yelp for help is this: Does anyone one have a cheeper solution to getting dupes made (with good enough quality to land on big time editors' light tables) or am I looking at the wrong process for getting dupes done. Other quality labs that I have checked all seem to be in about the same price range.Thanks in advance for your input and wisdom on this one.
