    The answer to this is quite simple. Swap to a 24 sheet box (which solves "what do I do with an odd sheet" complaints) and keep the price the same. This would provide an incentive to move the remaining stocks of 25 sheet boxes. You could even print a few retro-fit stickers to put on the boxes ..."Special! 24 sheet box + added bonus! One extra sheet free"... Not changing the price would have the added benfit of tremendous labor savings as there would be no need to add an SKU or update existing pricing and the new packaging could simply be shipped on a a stock turnover basis.

    Dear Celec,

    Now thats a clever idea......!!!!!...But I think if you neded any advice from APUG members in the future you may have to wait a little time...so it will have to be 25 or 26 not 24 !!

    Personally, I would like to see an Ilford equivalent of Ready Loads.

    Simon,
    Well, it just seemed logical to me. I will attempt to bow graciously to the will of the public in this instance. I however second the suggestion that you make film (FP4+) available in quickload format.
    Celac.
