RE: film


Do you remember the name of the company printing the large negatives for
$40.00 bucks? I can only fine one local typesetter shop that makes them and
their prices are significantly higher than $40.00.

	I have "not-yet" found another truly suitable substrate. I've
printed on a product from the
PhotoWarehouse company in Oxnard, CA and it was not nearly as nice/
good as the Pictorico.
However, you CAN print on architectural tracing paper. Yes, light
goes through and it does
have somewhat of a texture embedded in its core but you might try it
for your large ideas for
prints. It will crinkle easily as well so you must handle it
carefully. I've also tried paraffin ironed
on it which makes it a tiny bit more translucent.

	The other thing to do is have type-setting facility print you a
large 4000 dpi negative. Since
I live in a larger metropolitan area and Silicon Valley is near,
there are a number of places that
will create a large, 32"x40" negative for about $40. That price was a
while ago and may either
be lower of higher today.

	If you look @ Dan Burkholder's site, he has good info on these types
of negs.
