2381Re: [PPLetterpress] Re: film output costs
- Jan 10, 2004Our charge for a letter size (8x10) negative is $12. Additional is delivery,
FedEx, etc. The cost for several pieces goes down when considering delivery
charges. Multiple images can be put on one negative, and unless needed for some
reason, skip crop marks if they indicate the paper size as that's not the way we
typically locate an image in letterpress anyway--a lot of people being trained
today for offset don't quite get that concept. Multiple images need an allowance
for cutting area, and for steel backed plates, cuts have to be straight line and
all the way across the plate for each cut. We get overnight service on
negatives, and we normally make plates on an overnight basis and include a
printed proof of the plate, not a printout of the file, as part of the service.
Anything more than this and you need to find a new source of negatives and/or

for film negatives. They are in Glendale (Los Angeles).
I think I pay $16 or $18. Advantage for my clients is that EDI takes
the files via email, accepts credit card payments, and delivers free
to me. Usually the owners drive over and deliver them. They are a bit
intrigued by (and respectful of) letterpress activities.
