I may be the only one left who actually made the original translites by hand, processing the film in a bathtub. That was Translite 1. Duratrans came along. Good color, lousy surface, thin diffuser. Call it Translite 2. Now for something entirely new. Translite3™ has a great story.

“Translite3™: finally a method in printing backings that loves the image and the environment.” - Richard Lund
