    Any graphic design house should have it. I got mine at e bay for a ridiculous price, the guy had finished his job and did not needed it any more, you might try there too.

    I just bought some at a medium sized artist's supply store in Cleveland, OH. Try calling some near you in St. Louis.

    Diane,

    It's getting harder to find in stores where I live. I just bought a large roll of the stuff to line the windows of my camper to turn it into a wetplate darkroom. Got it from these guys:

    Just type Rubylith in the search box.

    Best,

    Good Afternoon, Diane,

    Have you tried Dick Blick in Fairview Heights?

    It is also getting harder and harder to buy Rubylith on line. Several places I purchased from a year or two ago no longer carry Rubylith, and others that carry it have reduced the the number of sizes.

    I just purchased today a roll of Ulano 40x150 inch on ebay for 1/3 less than you can find at :

    Perhaps I was lucky. And thanks to Jorge for mentioning ebay.
