    Re: Affordable Dry Plate Holder Kickstarter coming!

    Campaign is in review with the Kickstarter overlords. Hopefully they will approve without issue and then we can launch.

    5x7 was hit or miss on being included for a while but we pulled off a minor miracle with quoting mold costs so that size is definitely in.

    That's great! I'm going to get some 5x7 and 8x10 holders.

    Re: Affordable Dry Plate Holder Kickstarter coming!

    Per the modified original post, attached are the pictures that I'm pushing out prior to campaign launch. They show a CAD render of what the holder will look like (the 4x5 version), as well as prototype glamour shots and a comparison of thicknesses to other holder styles.

    Take the images with a grain of salt. The prototypes are rough and tumble (necessarily). The final holders will be MATTE BLACK. So don't let the computer-selected colors of the CAD render fool you.

    Steve and I have put in a lot of late night hours over the past several months designing, prototyping, and testing. I hope you enjoy the fruits of our efforts.

    Thanks to all of you for your ongoing support. It wouldn't have happened without your encouragement and support.

    I never doubted they would be black.

    Although I have plenty of holders, I will be first in line to buy all sorts of sizes.

    Great enterprise

    Bonne fortune!

    Jason, will the price of the holders post-Kickstarter campaign be different or the same as the rewards as indicated in your first post?

    On board - got in early-bird for 8x10!
    Just made my first batch of emulsion and coated some 4x5s to use in antique holders - can't wait to scale up to 8x10!

    Hey Corran,

    Good question. Steve and I have been discussing it. We really want to keep them the same but might need to bump them up a bit so that we can accommodate offering wholesale prices to retailers and not undercut their own prices. It's a balancing act but we're pretty close to where they should be already.

    I say this every chance I get -- I am 100% committed to ensuring that these things are affordable because I truly believe the future growth of analog photography -- especially niche processes like dry plate -- is dependent on ensuring it is accessible. Cost is a big component of that. I'm not a rich guy, so I know how tough it is to part with hard-earned $$.

    Also... thanks to all the folks here on the forum who have shown support and interest. Great little community here and I'm glad to be a part of it.

    Cheers,
    Jason
