    Ilford postcard paper availability

    I've been trying to get some Ilford postcard paper for awhile and am not having any luck.

    My local dealer (Don's Photo in Regina) says that it can't get the paper from its distributor.

    I was in Toronto this weekend and Henry's, who supposedly had some during the APUG conference, had none at all. Downtown Camera didn't have it either.

    B&H doesn't have it on its website.

    So... who has some? Preferably in Canada or the US.

    I know that a few Montreal photo stores do have some. I wouldn’t mind arranging to send you a box if you want.

    I saw a few boxes of 100 at LL Lozeau in Montreal, for 39.99$. I live nearby so I can make the errand if needed for the price of shipping and a nice postcard of yours!
    Using film since before it was hip.

    I think Ilford had to make more because they were out! I believe it takes a couple weeks to produce a run.

    Freestyle has it, altho there is something there about low stock. Also, at Freestyle it is not called 'postcard' paper, but I know it is as I asked and the number is right.

    Newtonville Camera in Newton, MA had some when I bought mine about 3 weeks ago. I could get some to you, but it might take a few weeks as I leave for vacation this week. Just let me know.

    Ive decided I'm going to offer post cards to my wedding customers so they can mail their favourite shot on a post card to guests who attended the wedding.

    I rekon I could charge a sliding scale of something like £4 each if they buy 1-5, £2.50 each if they buy 6-15 and £1 each if they buy 16+

    Matt,

    I did some quick maths a couple of weeeks ago on Selling hand printed postcards and worked out I'd make something like £5 per hour, not exactly brilliant.
