    My local ilfochrome supplier has stopped selling it, and now i am looking for someone in Europe that ship ilfochrome paper and chemicals to Switzerland. I can get the paper from silverprint, but i have a hard time to get the chemicals. Does anyone know a retailer, either in Switzerland or that ship to Switzerland.

    I send an email to ilford but never got an replay.

    cheers

    I've ordered the paper and the chemicals at Mayr. If they ship to the Netherlands, I can't see a reason why they wouldn't ship to Helvetica. Good luck.

    Ilfochrome is made in Switzerland by Ilford in Marly (FR). Since a few years, Ilford only sells directly to big accounts (Media-Markt, ...), no more to smaller shops.
    These smaller shops have to go through Wahl Trading (http://www.wahl-trading.ch).
    Normally, any photo shop should be able to order Ilfochrome from Wahl.
    You will rarely see a shop stocking Ilfochrome, even Wahl does not stock it because it has a slow turnover, so expect some time before you get the goods. This looks an advantage to me as it assures you get fresh products stored in perfect conditions directly at the plant.

    There are a few web shops that have some Ilfochrome items in their list:
    http://www.internet.ch/fr/800137_Ilford_IlfoChrome_Kit_P30.2.html
    http://defotoshop.wodis.ch/marken-i-l/ilford/ilford-ilfochrome-kit-p302.php
    http://www.microspot.ch/microspot/product/Zubehoer/0000247845/Ilford_IlfoChrome_Kit_P30.2/detail.jsf
    These links are about the small P30 kit, if your printing volume is large enough, you've better to go with the larger P3 chemicals.

    If you're in the french part of Switzerland, I can give you the name of the shop nearest you.
