    This might be a bit off topic. But regarding purchasing Ilford paper, I'm a bit worried about getting the shipment of brandnew (un-exposed) photographic paper from another country. I live in Japan, and my choice seems to be the shops from the U.S.

    For the light-sensitive materials, is it always safe if I choose the suppliers like B&H or JandC that famously do international shipping? Do I have to know which carrier I need to choose just in case? So in that sense, is FedeEx always the best choice because they do a hand search of your package?

    Regards

    I`ve never had any problems with film or paper sent from Usa or Asia, I`ve had stuff sent with USPS Airmail, UPS or FedEx, no problems.
    But I usually don`t use FedEx as they are way too expensive compared to the others..

    Firecracker, I have had film from Megaperls in Japan sent via normal post, no problems.

    I very recently bought some Ilford Postcard paper from Germany and it also went via normal post as well, prints beautifully.

    Nicole if you do need some, I currently have a spare box for immediate usage.

    Assuming Simon can convince the local distributor to get some I have enough for about 2 years at current usage, I bought 1,000 sheets or ten boxes, all the way from sunny Stuttgart!

    Mick.

    Amund and MickFagan, thanks for your advice. I think I'll start using the shops overseas since there's so much limit in the photo supplies in the domestic market.
