    Hey all, a friend of mine is going to spend a week in Chicago and she´s gonna bring some paper. You know, down here in Brazil they´re really expensive, so I can´t miss the opportunity. But my question is: Is there any online store in US where I can find Ilford paper with the european size (12x16in)? Trying everywhere, but I could not find. If you know someplace will be very helpfull...

    Thanks

    Yan

    You won't find it in North America. I've searched as well and contacted the distributors in the US and Canada. They simply don't import it. They claim that there's not sufficient interest in this format here. Freestyle has Foma FB paper in 12x16 but that's it. You can cut 16x20 in 12x16 + 8x12 + 4x8 or 12x16 + 2 x 8x10 if that's any help.

    12x16 is a UK/Continental European size, (it used to be 12x15 once in the UK) the US equivalent has always been 11x14, so that's what they import.

    11x14 is rare in Europe.
