    Still producing (after the brief hiatus at the beginning of the receivership) last I heard.

    I just read something, maybe on another thread on this site. It was about an article or statement by Silverprint that an annoucement would be coming in Dec, and it was of a postive nature. Also mentioned they might be contracting out the chemical end of the division.

    You might try the search function to find the specifics. I know i read this a few hours ago and i am almost 100% sure it was on this site.

    I've just read it too, it is called "Unofficial Ilford Update" and the news is quite good for film an paper, but apparently not for chemicals.

    Looks like I posted a few hours early - I tagged what I had just read on the end of an old thread...


    Cheers, Bob.

    Our local Ilford rep just got canned. Local photo shops now have to order directly.
