Protect Yourself and Your Pictures by reading this
YOU must have good prints from your negatives whether they be thin or contrastive. You will get them by using
If you do your own printing verify our statement by trying CYKO. If some one else does the finishing for you insist on getting CYKO prints, even if he be a controlled dealer. He may have a questionable right to sell only one make of paper but not to refuse to give you the best prints from your negative on account of his ironclad and tight-bound agreement with his manufacturer.
Cyko will give you the best results
This is easily proven for the reasons are many
Cyko has Latitude
We will explain what this means:
No one, even an expert, can, by looking at a negative, determine exactly how long to print it (expose it) so as to make a perfect picture. With CYKO if the right time is 20 seconds and you happen to give it 15, the print will still be good. It will take a little longer to develop and that's all. With any other paper the print will be poor because if you force the development it will fog-the print will be gray, flat, without detail and lifeless.
Cyko has Tone Gradations
This means that almost every negative has thin parts-almost clear glass at times (under-exposed shadows) and dense portions (fully exposed high-lights), and with other papers the resulting print will consist of burnt black paper on one side and chalky white on the other. With CYKO the shadows will be there to be sure, but full of transparency, allowing the details to show in a low tone. The highlights will also be there, full of middle tints and detail. In other words, the light and shadows blend so harmoniously through such soft progressive gradation of tones that there is no strong dividing line.
Cyko is Made in Three Grades
designated as Contrast, Normal, Soft.
Any one can tell whether a negative is thin, of normal density or contrastive. For a thin negative CONTRAST CYKO is used; for a normal negative NORMAL CYKO is used, and for a contrastive negative SOFT CYKO will give a beautiful print.
Cyko is Made in Five Surfaces
To suit the subject of your negative, as follows: GLOSSY CYKO has a surface with a high gloss similar to the old P. O. P. glossy gelatine paper. SEMI-MATTE CYKO has an ivory-like matte surface closely resembling that of very smooth Platinum paper. STUDIO CYKO has a surface identical with that of Matte Collodion P. O. P., that is, a matte surface with a slight sheen which gives a velvety or satin appearance to the print. PLAT. CYKO has a surface identical with that of the original Platinum with a rich, almost imperceptible grain. ROUGH CYKO is the same as Rough Platinum surface.
