The Print File Custom Negative Proofer is an accurate tool for contact printing on 8x10" paper.

A heavy duty glass pressure plate holds the film down securely against the printing paper which, in turn, is held by a durable foam pad.

Seven strips of five frame 35mm film can be contacted on this proofer.

Film can be contact printed directly through the Print File Nega-File system without removing them from the plastic sleeve thus preventing potential damage to the emulsion.

          Comments about Print File Custom Proofer:

          I use this contact proofer to make contact prints of digital negatives. It keeps the negative pressed up against my paper so the whole image is equally in focus. It is great for the price.

            I use this to make contact sheets for each roll of film I shoot, so that I can determine which shot would be a better print,and this product makes it very easy to do so. I have no complaints about this what so ever!

                it is very well made, and very useful. However, the negative sleeves are designed to fit ten negative strips of 5 photos each. This negative proofer is about half an inch too small to fit all of them at the same time !!!

                I've been using Print File's negative holders for sometime, and using a piece of Plexiglas to make contact sheets. Well I finally ponied up a couple of bucks for Print File's Custom Proofer. Basically your negative holder goes under the glass above a fresh sheet of paper. The glass gives nice even pressure, so your contact sheets are sharp across the board. Why didn't I buy this sooner?

                Works fine; locking clip would add value

                    Comments about Print File Custom Proofer:

                    A locking clip would be helpful; with this unit you need to hold down the glass during exposure to ensure sharp proofs when negs have curl.
