Will the 7x17/8x20 frame have a three spring or two spring back? If three springs, I'd pre-order. If two, I'll probably wait for reports and see how others are finding them. A three-spring design also makes it possible to expose two smaller prints in the same frame and take one out before the other.


I have confirmed with the manufacturer that the 7x17/8x20 and 12x20 contact printing frames will have three springs and a three-piece back (with two hinges). This will permit making two smaller prints simultaneously and removing one without disturbing the other.

Really Big Cameras has placed our first order with Argentum for the contact printing frames discussed in this thread. The shipment is expected to arrive in about two weeks and will include a limited quantity of contact printing frames in the following sizes:

24x30cm - $219.00 + shipping
30x40cm - $249.00 + shipping
24x55cm for 7x17 and 8x20 - $249.00 + shipping
35x55cm for 12x20 - $309.00 + shipping

The actual image area of these frames is 1cm larger in each direction than the nominal dimensions.

Initial quantities will be limited. If you'd like to reserve a frame from this shipment, please send an email to: sales@reallybigcameras.com

Please indicate which size(s) you wish to reserve and include your zip code for calculation of the shipping charges.

I just received a shipment today, and now have the Argentum contact printing frames in stock in the banquet sizes. The actual image areas are:

25x56cm (9.8" x 22") for 7x17 and 8x20
36x56cm (14.1"x22") for 12x20

I can also confirm that backs of the banquet frames are three piece (two hinges) with three springs - as requested.

I have another shipment on the way that will include the standard size frames:

24x30cm nominal (25x31cm = 9.8" x 12.2" actual)
30x40cm nominal (31x41cm = 12.2" x 16.1" actual)

That shipment should be arriving in about 7 - 10 days.

I'll try to post some photos of the banquet format contact printing frames this weekend.
