    Ilford do make paper in rolls, or at least there's product codes for them in a variety of sizes. So it's available, it's just not a regularly stocked item for many people I imagine.

    Ilford papers are available in Rolls in North America, you need to widen your choice of suppliers.

    I used the roll Adox MCP from freestyle for a 30' mural that turned out great.

    B&H also carries a wide selection of B&W RC and FB paper in rolls, as well as RA-4 paper from both Kodak and Fuji. Where were you looking that you couldn't find any?

    Agfa, Foma and Fotoimpex make rolls of their variable contrast papers.

    Hate to state the bl**ding obvious but as the stuff is coated in roll form there shouldn't really be any problem getting hold of it in suitable widths/lengths. However agents in some territories seem to have a phobia of stocking them, possibly in case they get landed with leftovers from any minimum order they have to place. Ilford/Harman have quite a few stock lines that any distributor worldwide should be able to call on anyway.

    Their specials also shouldn't be too daunting - they have done a number of special rolls for Silverprint, (which we now stock ongoing) on the basis of an order for 10 rolls of 42" (106cm) x 10 metres, or the equivalent area in 20". It's worth trying to set up an order with your supplier if you can go to that sort of size (or split it & sell the balance).
