Freestyle is selling off ALL the Arista b/w printing paper it has in stock as Ilford will no longer supply Arista with surplus production. This is the first time that Freestyle has admitted in print that the Arista brand of paper was indeed made by Ilford. Personally, when I used Arista b/w papers a few times 6 or 7 years ago it seemed that the " Ilford branded" paper was noticeably superior to the Arista branded product. No matter, I'm trying to support Freestyle more as they have a long history of supplying analog photography chemistry and papers. Several members of the store staff have told me that Freestyle will continue to be a good source for analog photography supplies.
For Arista users- Freestyle is having a "clearance sale" while supplies last.
I never thought I'd feel sad seeing a paper I didn't particularly care for getting discontinued!
