    Confirmed: Ilford Postcard Paper

    All,
    I stopped in at my my local photographic purveyor today to inquire if he has heard anything as to the availability of the Ilford Postcard Paper. He wasn't even aware that it was making a comeback, so he made a phone call to the distributer. The individual there told him that it will be shipped from the UK within the next two weeks, and should be available for purchase sometime in the first week of March. It will be available in 100 count boxes, in either gloss or pearl.
    Hopefully just in time to get started for the post-card exchange...

    Regards,

    It would appear that sending postcards to Simon at Ilford, worked?

    We sometimes make a big difference, with small steps!

    WOHA!!! I just can't believe it!!! When I wrote them, it seemed that the reissue of the postcard type was the last thing they had in mind!!!

    You made my day! Welcome back, postcard!

    Simon, I may be repetitive but this "direct line" with customers is just fantastic.

    Ilford's always been my family's choosen brand, and now that things were supposed to get worse day by day are instead getting better!

    They will get PERFECT as soon as 1- or 2-litres Ilfochrome kits will be produced and available again in Italy (er... would you mind to take a note? )

    Excellent news - but how many people did as I did and stocked up with enough Ilford postcard paper to last a lifetime when it seemed as if it would never be seen again? I even found two full 100 sheet boxes mis-described on a well-known internet auction site and paid little more than the cost of the postage for them.
    Simon - if Ilford run short of stock, give me a shout in Devon ;-)

    Best wishes to all,
    Steve

    Postcard competition? OH BOY OH BOY, I feel a postcard core dump coming on. I seem to have just a bit of extra card stock to work from.

    Postcard sized....

    Sorry, I really must learn to resist... Assuming it is the same size as previously, 10x15cm.

    Cheers, Bob.
