    16x20 from 8x10 without enlarger ?

    I don't own an 8x10 enlarger ,

    I have a buyer who wants my contacts to be 16x20 , I have taken my prints to two different high tech printing labs(digital) one of them came close about six months ago , but informed me an hour ago that he can not duplicate or even come close to my originals ,

    I am In Maine , he recomended Tri- Color- Labs in New Bedford Mass , they are 4+ hours from me and may be the only one that can do this , but I thought to see if someone may have other ideas...

    thanks for your help in advance.

    I'm assuming it's a black and white negative? Probably very tough for an inkjet to duplicate your contact print unless they have a Piezo ink system or something. There are some threads on people who built 8x10 enlargers out of old 8x10 cameras. Also some of the 4x5 enlargers have 8x10 conversion kits available- the Beseler 45 is one of them.

    Scan and send off for an LVT. Chicago Albumen can do LVTs to 16x20".

    I would look for a printer. Someone who is actually going to put your negative in an enlarger and print to silver based paper.

    Ilya,
    Where are you?

    Why are there no speaker jacks on a stereo camera?

    Have you tried Photographic Traditions in Portland?
    http://www.photographictraditions.com/index.asp

    Their website states that they do 8x10 film processing, but no mention of neg sizes for enlarging.
