    You could print the negatives onto litho film and develop the film for continuous tone results, if you are talking about black and white. This way is cheap, but can get frustrating getting the contrast right.

    You could scan the negatives and have them output via Lambda/Lightjet as translucent RA prints. This is a color process, but you could get monochrome results. Ask about this process at Hybrid Photo dot com.

    You might be able to make prints using an enlarger this way if the material is cut down from roll paper and placed in an easel with a black paper backing. Rolls are the only way it is available, to my knowledge.

    Thank you for the links, I will definitely check them out.
    I happen to be in Toronto, so if you know any local places, that'd be even better!

    Good question. Ask for Bob Carnie at http://elevatordigital.ca/ Not sure if he does it or not.
