    Nice one Simon. Is there a particular reason why Satin isn't included? It's the same price as Glossy and Pearl normally. Maybe its not as popular with students or indeed the general public and if so maybe the economics of preparing 120 sheet boxes can't be justified under the special offer.

    Just curious. MGIV nowadays seldom if ever seems to be beaten on price, making good value even better.

    Dear Pentaxuser,

    You are quite correct in your assumption that Satin surface sales are low compared to Gloss and Pearl, therefore promo packs are not justified.

    Thanks Simon. Concise and logical but that's nothing compared to its REAL value as a response which is RESPONDING TO A CUSTOMER'S QUERY.

    I wonder if there might just be a correlation between that and repeat business. Nah, can't be. A lot of other companies don't think so. I wonder where they all went?

    regards

    I just did some interesting figures regarding 8x10" MGIV RC paper in this country.

    I have often bought the 250 sheet packs as they were the cheapest way to buy this product. Worked out at $1.04 a sheet.

    However after finding the 120 sheets in the 100 sheet promotional packs that became the cheapest. Worked out at $0.98 a sheet.

    Now I see that there are 25 sheet packets with an extra 10 sheets, purchasing 4 packets and ending up with 140 sheets, the cost will be $0.91 a sheet.

    This is obviously the way to go, pity it isn't as very well known about in stores. I'll be in my local store on Saturday morning, I will enquire, and/or place an order for when they do come in.

    I need about 500 sheets so 15 packets will be a nice round figure. Also, the students I have, will be able to afford more easily, these smaller packets which is good, but not the greatest at storing, which is what used 100 sheet boxes are perfect for!

    Mick.

    Dear Mick,

    The 25's ( 35's ) are obviously designed for students, I know we shipped lots to Australia.

    Thanks for buying and valuing ILFORD Photo products

    Simon.
