    Ik heb wel dit gezien .misschien heb je er wat aan.

    George Tice's platinum prints are made by Salto in Belgium. My wife, Paula Chamlee and I had platinum prints made by Salto and we introduced George to them. Salto also printed the book of George Tice's that we published. And we will be publishing another one. With it, we will be offering a special edition with a platinum print priced at 1/2 of the minimum that George's platinum prints go for--along with a slipcased signed and numbered book Full information will be posted soon at www.lodimapress.com.

    The platinum prints. First, an original negative is scanned. Then 5 enlarged digital neagtives are made. The paper is double or triple coated and the neagtives are printed in register. The results are astounding. Salto has to be the best platinum printer in the world. I have had prints made from my 8x20 negatives one meter wide (15 x 39). Paula's prints are from 8x10 negatives and are 29 x 23 and are printed on handmade Taizan Japanese paper. These platinum prints are rich--black densities go to just over 2.0.

    The team, a very small group of very dedicated people, at Salto is fantastic and they are fanatical about quality. We have them print our books. The only do 600-line screen quadtone. No other printer can do 600-line screen. Stochastic printing is not quite as fine. Their platinum printing atelier is amazing. They also have carbon printing, tri-color carbro, and dye-transfer ateliers, and in the past have done photogravure, though I do not think they are doing that at this time.

    Because they are a very small team, their weak point is responding promptly. If anyone is interested in working with them, please contact me and I will intercede for you. One word of warning: they are expensive, but worth it if you care about the highest quality.

    Bedankt maar dat had ik ook gelezen.

    De enige resultaten die ik op Google krijg met de combinatie "Salto Atelier" leiden naar een circusschool. :-s

    Ik was vooral verwonderd dat ze ook op "grote" schaal met alternatieve procédés werken...

    Ive started at Salto 1 with George Charlier.
    We have been doing test in waterless offset first.
    We have printed all in 600 lines/inch dotscreen in two tone, 3 tone or quad tone. On several different papers.We have made the most beautifull books for several people.Making books ad that level is not easy, just a very small group of people can see the difference and are willing to pay for it.
    It was a great place but many people past Salto and to make that quality you need to have passion, ambition and also be a little crazy.
    So after 5 years I stopped and George went on and stopped with doing his own offset a year later.
    Im now a general director of Rosbeek printers in Nuth
    in Holland still making beautifull books, George is making beautifull prints in palladium and more.
    I know where he lives and works but I dont know if he would apreciate it if I would put his address on the internet.
    You can give me a call or send me a email and I can give you his cell phone number.

    Best wishes,

    Dear Marcel

    I am a New Zealand photographer. I have visited and stayed with the Smith-Chamlee s and saw their Salto platinum prints - and was extremely impressed.
    I am working on a WW1 Centenary project and have planned an exhibition of NZ and Australian WW1 memorials. All 8x10 contacts. To break the show up I would love to include 4 or 5 large platinum prints. I need to find out if this is possible and to do fairly urgently. I have tried to contact Michael Smith but I fear he is somewhere like Iceland and out of contact.
    I have been searching and seen that you know the Salto people. Would it be possible for you to put me in contact with them please? Or how to contact them?
    I would be most grateful.
    Kind regards
    Laurence Aberhart
