    I have been looking about until my eyeballs are bleeding. I've not had any luck trying to track down a source for the Forte's ivory base, museum weight, semi gloss paper. I'm casting about looking for something with a Portriga-ish look, and I wanted to try this. I picked up some rebadged PWT from FreeStyle, but that turned out to be a double weight with a bright white base which while not a bad paper was not at all what I was after. Does anyone have a clue for me?

    I am on a similar excursion, for Forte "cold tone"- Omega Satter is their US
    importer of record, and the Forte web site lists their cold tone paper, Bromofort. I think the best solution is to either buy Forte from a retail shop in Hungary, pay the freight, and go on down the road.

    The alternative is to convince the importer to stock or special order what you need; that is a possiblility, i.e. get some of us to chip in on an order.

    We should keep in touch, maybe one of us will get lucky.

    We have 8x10 and 12x16 Forte PG-V in stock here:

    PW-17 Chamois is special order from Forte. Depending on if they have any in stock or have to wait for a production somewhere down the road delivery times are uncertain.

    If you're in Europe check with Fotoimpex if they have any in stock.
