My shop called me today and said that the Ilford rep stated that as of today, postcard stock is available for order in the US. HOWEVER - it is only available in 500sht boxes (!!!!!). This makes absolutely NO sense to me from a marketing standpoint...If you have a new product which you wish to sell, I would think that it would be best to offer it in smaller packages, as people would be more likely to try ?
The list price for a 500sht box is $90ish. I was given a 20% discount if I wish to order a box, so my cost would be somewhere between $70-75. With that in mind - who wants to divide up a box of paper with me ? I see no point in spending $75 to have 425 sheets of paper lie around for a year or more. Im looking for 2-4 other people, as I would want at least 100shts. I am interested in the pearl flavor.
I can have this paper about a 4 days after it is ordered. My local shop orders Ilford once a week.
edit: If no one is willing, then I think I will be ordering a 100sht from overseas. Mr. Galley - do you have any insight on this ?
