    I'm just wondering if the Ilford warmtone paper says "Harman Technology" or "Ilford Imaging" on the box label (on the back, under the description). I just bought some and wasn't sure how new it was.

    A box I bought about 18 months ago has "Ilford Imaging" and one from earlier this year has "Harman". No idea when they changed the label. If you think it may be old paper, Simon Galley can tell you the date from the batch number.

    Cheers, Bob.

    Dear All,

    We are ensuring that all ILFORD Photo products are identified as being manufactured by HARMAN technology Limited, on labels printed online by inkjet this was done pretty quickly after we bought the business in February 2005, but some packaging is bought in very large volumes, and we obviously bought the existing stocks of packaging materials, as it is exhausted and new packaging ordered the HARMAN name is added to it. So whether it has HARMAN on or not is no direct idicator as to its age.

    Regards
