    Colorvir toners

    Hello, does anybody know whether the Colorvir company in France is still active, and how they may be contacted?

    Their website is active, but the traders in Germany do not stock the product any more, I get no answer to my email, and the French phone number given there connects to someone else.

    I had the same expeience whenever I tried to contact them a couple of years ago. Never ever answered any of my emails.
    I don't know if still trading or not.

    If not it's a pity - the set of toners is great fun. I still have most of mine left - which may indicate that the toners last too long and have too large capacity to be economical for the producer?

    There's also the sad fact that with the introduction of d*g*tal photography for "everyman", churning out prints with whacky colours qiocly lost its appeal...

    Just checked the Firstcall website. It lists the Colorvir Effects Kit which on reading the information seems to be the kit to which the thread refers. It's priced at £36.99. Firstcall says it has been importing the kits for the last 4 years. There's also a professional kit at twice the price. Looks to be fun to use. I have seen examples in a Roger Hicks/Frances Schultz book which were impressive.

    Colorvir manuals

    If You get a kit, I would ask You to share English manuals (copy or scan) with me. I have some old articles from magazines if You will need. I have made some scans of my photos with Colorvir here:

    Thank you for the answers; I was not aware of the firstcall website. I only hope the kit will remain available; I am somewhat worried that they sell only left-overs. Before I place an order, I will ask them.

    If and when I get a kit, I will certainly share the English manual.

    Firstcall deal mainly with the photography student market in the U.K. and while not the cheapest on many items are very reliable and carry a wide range of items. By left-overs I take it you mean kits made up from old stock? I would be surprised if the kits were left-overs. If Firstcall continues to import the kits as it says then this indicates fresh stock and if it was left-overs then I'd be surprised if this wasn't stated.

    In short I think you will find they are new kits but asking the question is worthwhile.

    Can you say what the source of your information is? Last night I contacted Firstcall about Colorvir as it stocks Colorvir products and is a big customer of Colorvir.

    I received a reply today from Rodney Bates, Sales Director, as follows: "Colorvir has not ceased trading and we have good stocks and our new order from France is being delivered next week"

    I read it in a french magazine. Don't remember if it was Reponse Photo or Le Photographe...

    But It's not the Bible. And if it is still alive, I would be glad.
