    Thanks

    I recently ordered from the Moersch website directly and asked for a cost with shipping so I could send a Money Order.
    Wolfgang replied and I sent the MO.
    The one catch is there is a limit to how heavy a package can be mailed, and it takes a few weeks.

    There is a store in downtown Toronto that sells Moersch products. Shipping won't be as cheap as from an American source, but should be much more reasonable than having it sent across the pond.

    No dealers left in Canada.

    I just spoke with Eight Elm in Toronto and they have none left. They have no intention of ever buying any more Moersch products b/c of the cost of purchase, shipping and insurance vs. demand. They were the only distributors in Canada.

    Thank you all for kindly estimation.
    Ok, spipping oversea is quite expensive. Until of finding a decision (US freestyle?) we will take over half charge - e.g. 16Euro instead 32 Euro up to 5kg or 21 Euro instead 42 Euro up to 10kg

    Wolfgang; is there any possibility that you could come to an agreement with Photographer's Formulary to mix and sell your formulas here in the USA.

    I thought I'd see if there were any new developments on this front after seeing the nice result Wolfgang posted with MT3 thiourea toner. I checked Freestyle and noticed that they carry Moersch A+B Lith developer. Will they be carrying the rest of the line, or is there another distributor in the US interested?

    Of course I could just mix my own thiourea toner and experiment with different formulas, and would probably do that rather than pay for shipping from Europe just for toner, but if I could get it off the shelf from B&H or along with an order of other items I typically get from Freestyle, I'd be curious to try MT3 at some point.

    Just to note: I am in Europe and I ordered from European seller next: 50 rolls of 120 film, 10 packs of ID11 for 1 liter, 3 boxes of 100 sheet 20x25cm (8x10) FB paper, 2 boxes of 50 sheet of 30x40cm (12x16) FB paper. About 9 kg parcel, atleast that is what transport company (post) calculated and charged. And transport cost by ordinary post, and that means atleast 2 weeks if not one month waiting for all that, is 68 USD.

    So, 42 EURO up to 10kg over Atlantic ocean is not that much expencive as you think :smile:

    Not expensive as far as shipping goes, but expensive as far as toner goes (unless I'm also ordering other things that I can't make so easily myself, like film)!

    Yes, I was reffering to price of transport up to 10 kg, and that for same weight price in Europe for European shipping is almost same as price for over Atlantic shipping, for same weight.

    Of course, ordering just one item make no sense regarding transport cost.

    Regard

    Yes they will.
    A palette with the (almost) entire line is already prepared to shipping.
    Probably everything will be available at Feestyle at the earliest at the end of july.
