If you get transparencies made (like the kind from grade school),
they'll work pretty well. The black background might come out a
little light if you just get them made at Kinkos, but you can get a
few layers made of the same words, stack them a about four layers
thick and absolutely no light will be able to get through the black
areas. Then, hold them against a light box. The white will be clear,
and you'll get a ton of light through it, and no light at all should
get through the black, if you have enough layers. If you shoot in on
hi-con stock (I think Kodak 7363 is the one I've used, but I'm not
sure about that) the whites should be crisp white and the blacks
should be ink black. Plus hi-con film can be processed as negative or
as reversal, and can be hand processed really easily.
