    I'm in love with 9x12" print size on 11x14 paper. It just looks so damned good.

    Brovira will give you a very grainy print, like most bromide papers.

    I was just offering another contemporary resource. In fact, I spent quite a bit less than that 10 years ago. These are Cesco, a very good (best?) durable plastic not used in cheaper, more brittle trays.

    I made some 50x60cm ones (20x24") just to see if I could.

    Then I went back to my old "standard size", 24x30cm.

    50x60 is normal for me - I actually find it easier to print this large, compared to ex 24x30...

    It is bigger, that presents the problem...

    Emil- check with your local pet supply place for rabbit trays. They're used for catching the droppings from the rabbit hutch. Also, check with your local agricultural supply store for seed starter trays. They both may have an inexpensive option in the right size.

    I have had all my large trays welded using a hard plastic, handles on each tray as well.
    I own the commercial white plastic trays , but these custom trays are much better IMO.
    Look for someone who can weld plastic then is just a matter of giving them your design, I am sure they will be cheaper than commercial trays and made to your specs.
    I have made my trays three inch deep and find it a good depth, also handles on one side for lifting and agitating.. I find this very nice feature..
    Also I have one very large tray that I have drilled holes in the bottom and use as a wash tray.. with plastic gloves inserted into the holes I can adjust the water depth.
    These large trays are very robust and when not in use I turn them upside down and put my smaller trays on top when working with small prints.
