    I am thinking of combining a shipment from Slavich if there is enough demand. I even have a base in Moscow (my sister's house), in case direct shipping is not economically feasible we could try send small batches with friends and family.

    They would consider cutting it to our more familiar sizes (8x10 or 11x14) if the order is large enough, so the paper is easier to position in our easels. But for the beginning we would probably have to deal with their market's sizes.

    The goods list: It seems Slavich (http://www.tdslavich.ru) has no English catalogue, but basically they have two types of paper: Unibrom and Bromportrait-80 (there is also one called Berezka, but I have no idea what its qualities are). Their many sizes are in cm (9x12,10x15,13x18,18x18,18x24,24x24,24x30,30x30,30 x40,...) Unibrom is a cold toned paper, Bromportrait is warmish.

    The surfaces for Unibrom are glossy or matte; for Bromportrait we have matte, glossy, and glossy "silk embossed" (my portrait favourite, a very nice textured surface).

    Contrast grades 2,3,4 (Russians call these semisoft, normal and contrasty, but they roughly correspond to the Ilford grades 2-4).

    I haven't dug too deep here... but if we can buy old Fed and Zorki cameras from "nobody people" successfully on e-bay from the old USSR. Has or why hasn't anyone bought directly from the factory?
    I run a shop, I'd be willing to do a $1000 order if some of you actually intend to buy some.

    I asked the Slavich factory and they quoted the paper cost pretty cheap but shipping was through the roof high, they said $400-$500+.

    With that said, I have begun to order Unibrom from Laser Refections, in WA. I hope to get my order in a few weeks.
    See below, Bernadette has a price list on their site too

    I just ordered Slavich Unibrom grade 4 in 11x14 25 sheets double weight matte finish from B&H. It seems they now supply this paper. It said it was shipped direct from the manufacturer. However the shipping said from Wyoming not Russia. Any way I am excited to try this out for Lith. I have always wanted to but never did when Freestyle carried it and it seemed a bit difficult to source for awhile. Prices are very reasonable as well!

    Peter,

    I have heard that Slavich Unibrom is a bit like Agfa Brovira. What do you think? I've always wanted to try this stuff out, glad to see that it is available again.

    Thanks...

    What is the "BP" shown in the listings for this paper? My first thought was it had something to do with weight but the SW is listed as 160 BP while some of the double weight is also listed as 160 BP while some is 80 BP.

    What am I missing here?

    I think the "BP" identifies it as "Bromide Paper". Their Bromportrait paper carries the same designation. I believe these may be the last true bromide papers on the market, now that the Kentmere Bromide has (I think) been discontinued by Harman?

    I've used the Unibrom paper a little. Still have some of all three grades in my darkroom. Used Ansco 130 developer and selenium toning. I thought it looked really nice.

    But it did seem noticeably higher in contrast per grade than I was used to. More like 3, 4, and 5 instead of 2, 3, and 4. I just diluted the 130 more.

    The current ISO range numbers say this shouldn't be the case, at least when compare to the Ilford Gallerie data sheet, which still lists all four grades, but that was my impression.

    As I recall it does require a deep red safelight. I use 635 nm LEDs filtered through Rubylith.
