    I am looking to buy litho film (8x10 sheets). Can anyone recommend a supplier and provide contact information?

    Thanks in advance.

    Good Morning, Jack,

    Freestyle has ordinarily had lith film available. Your local photo store may have Kodalith.

    I haven't seen Kodalith in years. The best bet is the good stuff from freestyle.

    I was looking on B&H for the same stuff. They have the Kodalith in 8x10 but it's pricey, about $280 for 100 sheets. they also have the Ilford Ortholith as well.

    You are vicious. I have managed to avoid screen printing supply houses for years now, quite successfully... until now. If I go broke and wind up living on the street it's all your fault.

    Photo screen printing was a big time passion for me in the late '80s. I can't afford to take it up again.


    Thanks Dan.

    Thank You all

    Thank you all for your suggestions. I think Freestyle and Arista are the winners. Kodalith is quite pricy

    I just got a box of the Arista. I hear Dektol 1:9 is the way to go. How much light do I need to expose it for a contrast mask?

    If this actually works it will save me a grundel. I've been using sheet film.

    Valley Litho does carry some Arista; at least their catalog says so. Dan
