Piezography Digital Negatives @ CEP

CEP's Piezography Digital Negatives (PiezoDN) use a special batch of monochromatic ink designed in-house and ultra-premium inkjet transparency films to create unmatched digital-to-negative film. We calibrate the system to each person's unique darkroom and process and then we are able to print negatives that—when printed—will match our customer's screen.

The PiezoDN negative is a new invention from Cone Editions Press. We found that printing with up to 10 shades of monochrome ink (from dark to light) enables incredibly smooth and dependable tones coupled with high-resolution, and very opaque dMax. These qualities are all required if you are going to spend $$$ on Platinum/Palladium salts or other expensive alt process chemistries. A Platinum print is only as good as its weakest link and usually that is the negative. With PiezoDN we finally have a negative that is capable of printing the fine details from a drum scan or high-megapixel digital camera. The negatives also have incredibly subtle tonal transitions and we can calibrate them perfectly.

Custom Calibration for home darkroom is available and this step is required to begin proper digital negative printing!
$150.00 per Calibration. Calibration is stored @ Cone Editions Press under the customer's name and digital negatives are made from this calibration for the client and their own home darkroom.
