Contact Printing Frames
$160.00 – $210.00
Hand-made contact printing frames in standard sizes for 8×10″/A4 paper or 11×14″ paper. Custom sizes available by request.
Our contact printing frames are made in-house from recycled timbers at our studio in Adelaide, Australia, to a design we modelled on several original contact frames from the early 1900’s.
The contact frames are rigid with hand-made steel springs for appropriate pressure. They are extremely easy to use and have been rigorously tested by us and our many workshop participants. As you would expect each frame has a split back so you can check your exposure without disturbing the negative registration. They are suitable to use with film or glass negatives.
We are still making these frames, however at present we are only just keeping up with backorders. Backorders can take 6-8 weeks, but are often sent sooner depending on where we are with the next batch of frames.
Please note: these are sturdy, utilitarian contact frames made to make anything from cyanotype to platinum prints. They are intended to get banged about, have notes written on and generally be used to make wonderful things. They are not intended to be beautifully crafted objects themselves. If you are looking for an amazing, handcrafted and exceptionally beautiful contact frame we recommend Gold Street Studios.
