    Has anyone found a box of Ilford's postcard stock recently?
    It seems to have disappeard, just when I got an old printer the right size!

    I just got three boxes from Calumet last week. They had both gloss and matt in stock.

    It's still being produced, you can get the catalogue number from Ilford's website: 1834846. Freestyle Photo in America has it in stock as well.
    I've only got 11 sheets left, I need to buy a few more boxes. Wonderful stuff.

    my local supplier refuses to sell me in date stock unless I buy the out of date stock they have first. How crappy is that!

    I popped into Silverprint last week and picked up a box of pearl with no problems (pearl finish seems the rarer one to find as well; most online people only seem to list gloss.)

    The only problem is that most online retailers I've seen make it as hard as possible to find - the key word to look for isn't "postcard" it's "portfolio." If you see 10x15cm RC Portfolio paper, then that's the postcard paper AFAIK.


    (Yes, the fact that I bought some last week means I now have no excuse not to get on with my postcard exchange prints :smile:.)
