platemaking Services

Here’s how it works:

Send me images and desired sizes, preferably 360 dpi. We can have a phone conversation regarding any cropping or stretching. I’ll do any appropriate Photoshop adjustments, make transparencies (up to 23.5″ wide), expose and develop the plates and if desired, print a proof of each.


Regardless of sizes the fee for the labor above is $100 for the first plate and $50 for each additional plate. If platemaking occurs during an assisted session or workshop the labor is already included in the session or workshop fee.


For ImagOn the cost is $18/sq ft. This includes the transparency, PETG plate and ImagOn film. The cost of Arches 88 paper is additional if a proof is requested. I stock pre-laminated 16 x 20, 12 x 16 and 11 x 14 ImagOn plates and can cut and make whatever sizes preferred (up to 23.5″x 36″). Sample materials pricing for ImagOn: 16 x 20 – $40 ($46.60 if a proof is included) 12 x 16 – $24 ($27.30 if a proof is included) 11 x 14 – $19.25 ($22.55 if a proof is included)

I stock 8 x 10 and 12 x 16 Solarplates. Custom sizes are available upon request. Pricing for Solarplates plus transparencies are 8 x 10 – $21.78 ($23.43 if a proof is included) 12 x 16 – $56.67 ($59.97 if a proof is included)

NM sales tax (8.4375%) will be added for projects shipped within NM, during assisted sessions or workshops occurring in Santa Fe, NM. Shipping cost varies depending on the size.
