    What a coincidence, I've been looking for the same thing this week.

    If second-hand is OK, there's always eBay (search for contact proof printer or contact printer or...). Or a real-life photo fair (I believe there's one in Antwerp a few times per year, I should have a leaflet about that somewhere.... :rolleyes:

    If you want it new... well, Paterson still makes them, see here, but "quantity: 4" sounds like Paterson wants us to get 4 of them in one buy. Hey, I only need one!

    At least one website where I found the item is fotomayr.de (Heimlabor -> Zubehoer -> Rahmen); not sure if it's a Paterson, though. Also, when I look at the price, I'm a bit shocked, so I'm considering 2nd hand.

    Why not look for a used 4x5" or 5x7" printing frame?
    A little extra space makes it a lot easier to work, and the border o the print is also nice.

    I think the two fellows were looking for the type that holds three strips of negs in a plastic "frame" to keep them in alignment.
    Heavily sedated for your protection.

    That would indicate some confusion between contact printing and proofing.

    Hm, yes, and frankly -please someone correct me if I'm mistaken- I don't believe we have separate terms for those in Dutch or Flemish. Proofing is "contactafdrukken" (contact prints), and so is contact printing (I guess).

    So, that's our confusion, right there!

    I was interpreting this as proofing, but I'm not sure what Uncle Goose meant...

    I assumed that the original question had to do with making a single contact print from a single 6x6 frame. I'm not really sure now.

    Hey Kraker, thanks for the info. Indeed there is a fair every now and then in Antwerp but darkroom materials are getting more scarce over there as digital moves on, also it's all about bodies and lenses over there. A new one is indeed expensive that's why I search for secondhand too.

    And indeed, it's for contactprinting that has been nicely alligned on the paper. I always mess it up and I want to print contacts so I don't need to enlarge it completely.

    You could just contact print the negatives in the plastic sleeve.

    I still think there is confusion. I think what's desired is a 6x6 print of a single frame, centered on the paper, suitible for display...not a proof sheet.
