    Urrghh.. I feel like I've been reading in circles, and getting somewhat confused, so can somebody please set out what optical papers are still made in the bigger roll sizes (say 50").. and what might be the future of these remaining papers..
    Thanks in advance :smile:

    A post was just made about a new Kodak paper available in sheet form. I suggest that you locate the thread.

    Edge, Royal Generations, Ultra Endura, and that new one apparently. I think Ultra's made in the 50 inch widths. You're not alone just yet. There are more digital papers too. Although I do like good old Supra...

    There's one last batch of supra being sold. Buy fast.

    "Kodak Professional" told me that the Supra Endura in sheets in the F (glossy) serface is still available and not yet officially discontinued. Edge is kind of nice. As nice as Endura but slightly thinner.

    Many thanks, AgX
    that's good news on the Agfa.. presumably big rolls will remain available due to demand for commercial murals and, by the gods, a small number will be optically compatible.
