    Someone told me that the Ultafine stuff is actually Xray film. Can anyone confirm or deny? Because if it is, you can just buy Xray film cheaper. I'm interested because I would like to buy some real lith film.

    You would want to fix it prior to use. I have been using Yupo paper as a support for carbon tissue. It is a plastic paper and reusable.

    AFAIK, Ultrafine's "High Contrast Ortho Litho Film" is "real litho film". I was going to mention the "Arista II" litho film from Freestyle, but it looks like they don't carry it anymore.

    BTW--It's Ultrafine's "Continuous Tone Duplicating Film" that is xray film. Actually, it's xray duplicating film.

    I too would recommend Yupo for carbon support. Fixing out silver in a film just for a support seems like a lot of unnecessary work and wasted expense.

    A "book" of Yupo paper might last the rest of your life. You can reuse it over and over!

    I'd also recommend Dura-Lar clear 0.005" film. Maybe not as durable as Yupo (but less expensive). 25 sheets of 11x14 = $12.50. I usually get 3 uses before a sheet gets too dinged up, but I'm also not very careful in handling them.
