    Litho Film

    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.

    Because it got too many http's in it...

    Try this one:

    Corrected link
    Photography has always fascinated me -- as a child, simply for the magic of capturing an image onto glossy paper with a little box, but as an adult because of the unique juxtaposition of science and art -- the physics of optics, the mechanics of the camera, the chemistry of film and developer, alongside the art in seeing, composing, exposing, processing and printing.

    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.

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.
