    Dear All,

    Just a quick note to let you know of the ILFORD Photo 'back to school' offers that are now appearing on the shelves in the USA & Canada : Obviously these are primarily aimed at the student market but I thought apuggers should know. Multigrade below is RC Multigrade IV

    50 Sheets Multigrade 10" x 8 " ( Gloss or Pearl ) + 6" x 6" Multigrade Filter Pack : SPECIAL VALUE OFFER

    25 Sheets Multigrade 10" x 8" ( Gloss or Pearl ) + 15 Sheets FREE OF CHARGE ( Making a 40 sheet pack )

    Nice one Simon. Is there a particular reason why Satin isn't included? It's the same price as Glossy and Pearl normally. Maybe its not as popular with students or indeed the general public and if so maybe the economics of preparing 120 sheet boxes can't be justified under the special offer.

    Just curious. MGIV nowadays seldom if ever seems to be beaten on price, making good value even better.

    Dear Pentaxuser,

    You are quite correct in your assumption that Satin surface sales are low compared to Gloss and Pearl, therefore promo packs are not justified.

    Regards

    Thanks Simon. Concise and logical but that's nothing compared to its REAL value as a response which is RESPONDING TO A CUSTOMER'S QUERY.

    I wonder if there might just be a correlation between that and repeat business. Nah, can't be. A lot of other companies don't think so. I wonder where they all went?

    regards

    I just did some interesting figures regarding 8x10" MGIV RC paper in this country.

    I have often bought the 250 sheet packs as they were the cheapest way to buy this product. Worked out at $1.04 a sheet.

    However after finding the 120 sheets in the 100 sheet promotional packs that became the cheapest. Worked out at $0.98 a sheet.

    Now I see that there are 25 sheet packets with an extra 10 sheets, purchasing 4 packets and ending up with 140 sheets, the cost will be $0.91 a sheet.

    This is obviously the way to go, pity it isn't as very well known about in stores. I'll be in my local store on Saturday morning, I will enquire, and/or place an order for when they do come in.

    I need about 500 sheets so 15 packets will be a nice round figure. Also, the students I have, will be able to afford more easily, these smaller packets which is good, but not the greatest at storing, which is what used 100 sheet boxes are perfect for!

    Mick.

    Dear Mick,

    The 25's ( 35's ) are obviously designed for students, I know we shipped lots to Australia.

    Thanks for buying and valuing ILFORD Photo products

    Simon.

    I just got a 25+10 pack of 8x10 from Jacobs, probably the cheapest I can get that paper.

    Tom I have seen no sign of these packs again. The Back to School time is usually Autumn term so late Aug/early Sept would be the usual time and not half way through Winter term.

    I don't recall any such offer since 2007 and certainly Simon has made no repeat announcement.

    I just bought 100 sheets of Multigrade, but I'm going to look for the 50 pack with the filters -- it will be good to have a 'backup' set.

    Simon, my thanks to you and Harmon for being there. It give me some faith that this art may continue for a while.

    I was getting kind of excited until I saw the date on the OP. This is an old post guys. Hopefully there'll be a special offer agian this fall, but this ain't it.

    Yes this is where undated thread titles if it's a time limited offer can fool us. Not sure what can be done about it but it can be a problem in the same way that say a 5 year old complaint about a supplier can be, especially if the complaint has been long since resolved or was a "one-off".
