2001 Directory of Printers &

This directory focuses on equipment used for processing and/or
printing silver-based photographic products. It is not intended to
include printers that output onto other than conventional
silver-based media. Nor does it encompass enlargers.
For each product, the respective manufacturer/distributor
provided information, which we may have edited for content or
length. We are not responsible for errors or omissions. Some of the
products were moved to the 2001 Color Digital Printer Directory
which will be featured in our August issue.
