    So it is expensive but not prohibited. Freestyle via Ilford/Harman can presumably do it less expensively than Freestyle via Slavich or so Simon Galley has to hope for the future .

    Slavich as far as I know still exports to the rest of Europe including the U.K. We in the U.K. must trust Slavich's shipping point more or maybe it is all transported via the Channel Tunnel.

    Not a problem for me but I still think that the basic reason hasn't yet been "drilled down to".

    I always thought that shipping via ships wasn't a problem terrorist-wise. and if it isnt bombs then what else is it and what has brought about new restrictions

    It's normally only the "silver birds" that give concerns of that nature

    About an hour or two ago I ordered my first two boxes of grade #2 from Freestyle so I could try Bromoil. Two hours later I read this post. Un-F*ng believable! So what else is left?

    Well it seems Slavich paper is still left. Just that nobody can figure out why Freestyle says it's too expensive to import. Given Kodak's dire straights we're now importing all of our b&w photo paper from overseas. So what gives with Slavich? Or Freestyle? Or both?

    Simon can do it.*

    (Not saying there's not a good explanation. Just wondering what it is...)

    * Well, Harman can. I don't think Mr. Galley himself trudges to post office every morning with pallets of shipping crates in tow...

    There is a place called Laser Reflections in Poulsbo, WA that sells Slavich holography plates. Perhaps they could be enticed.
    BREAKING NEWS.....

    I contacted Laser Reflections and spoke to Bernadette who said they can import to the US Slavich photo paper!!! Give them a call/email to discuss what you would need and they can work to get it in their routine holographic order:

    WOOO HOOOO!!!!!!!! Thanks Holmburgers for the tip too! Bromide paper lives on in the States.....

    Ilford Galerie grade 2

    I have had a hundred sheets of 16x20" grade 2 Ilford Galerie brought in by Rae for more printing of my English Littoral portfolio

    Ilford are running this stock out, but I was informed they will gladly restart if sufficient quantities are ordered - Perhaps Simon can comment on this possibility - I love/loved Ilford Galerie graded paper for for its subtle dove-grey mid tones

    I was able to get a pretty big batch of Slavich from freestyle just now. Just call and ask what they have left.

    Great stuff indeed, I am stockpiling quite a lot of double weight matte grade 3.

    No we are not running out this stock, GALERIE grade 2 and 3 are part of the range, we do not drop anything from the product line as is.

    zsas, wow, that's awesome! Thanks to you for following up on the tip; you did the necessary leg work.

    They should be nice to deal with and I suspect that if they could become the sole or primary US importer of Slavich, they might introduce a substantial segment of business for themselves, at least, that'd be nice.

    Is Freestyle still importing it, or do they just happen to have some remaining stock?

    I was told by Freestyle that when stock is gone, it is the end.

    I emailed Slavich who also confirmed the ending of the importation of Slavich via Freestyle

    BUT Laser Reflections can still get it, spoke to them yesterday!!!!! Woo hoo!! Give them a call email to discuss, very nice folks!
