    Anyone know how the batch codes work for Supra Endura? I've been trying to find some that isn't *too* out of date, but Kodak doesn't print expiry dates for paper I guess so it isn't easy... Any help would be appreciated.

    Call Kodak and they will give you the information.

    The last few batches of Supra have dates on the boxes. I have some dated for 2010 and 2011, I can't remember if I had any dated 2009.

    Indeed, the later stuff is dated. You can also generally date it by range, based on the labels. They changed label design sometime during the run, not in the last couple years, before that sometime. Earlier label is at least 3+ years old I'd say (Maybe more).... but still prints well, generally.
