    Friends -

    I've gotten back into FB printing by consuming a box of several year old Forte Poly Warmtone. It's been fun and I like my Forte prints quite a bit, but I've run out of paper and I realize I won't find any more of this stuff.

    A few years ago, I was a very contented AGFA MCC user and I'm anxious to try the new MCC 111 once it becomes available. I need to order some paper right now, however, and I'm looking for recommendations of papers to try, given my fondness for "warmish" VC FB papers.

    Thanks in advance,

    Gary,
    East Snook, TX

    Adox Polywamtone is the same paper as your Forte, so you can use that until the new FB MCC surfaces later in the year. Have look at Kentmere FB warmtone or the Fomatone MG papers.

    Ilford MG IV FB Warmtone is pretty nice paper, too.

    Thanks, Gary and Jim -

    Does anyone know of a source for the Adox paper in the US? Freestyle doesn't seem to carry it...

    You could try emailing them with a list of US stockists or try ordering directly:
    info@fotoimpex.de

    Some of our US members could give you better advice...try a new thread.
