    Hi

    A friend of mine is asking me to do a huge print for him, and now I need to know who makes paper in the size of 60x90 cm (24"x36") or something close to this and where I can buy it?

    Greetings Morten

    I dont think anyone does sheets this size (the largest I have seen was tetenal FB in 27"x20), but you can buy a 10 Metre roll length from most if not all manufacturers. Most do 20" and 40" widths, but agfa does a 50" width. Most do both 10m and about 30m lengths.

    Hi Morten
    You can order roll paper from any of the manufacturers through a local distributer. I buy rolls in all different sizes and emulsions for particular jobs, It is very economical to cut from a larger master roll.
    Warning , some vendors will sell 30ft rolls as opposed to 100ft rolls, get the 100ft as there is terrible curve in the smaller offerings.
    I would suggest going onto the paper manufacturers websites to find out dealers in your area and ordering that way.
    good luck

    Silverprint.co.uk list rolls on their website to give you some idea of cost. Big difference between makers - 100ft/30m rolls of Agfa are not cheap but others seem more reasonable .

    Cheers, Bob.
