    Agreed. I'm willing to pay more for quality and to keep a producer of quality products making a profit.

    I was about to start another thread but I'll ask my question here--it's been a couple of weeks now since Forte said it would be a couple of weeks. Has anyone gotten any word as to whether or not the company will have a future? My fingers are crossed.

    Here is an update on Forte. The receivers will begin looking over their situation in the next couple of days. The goal is to produce a plan to get them back into production. It is unclear if they will keep their entire product line or cut it back. All of this will be determined in the next few weeks. At the moment they still seem upbeat that they will go back into production minus the problems of the past.

    In addition, we have purchased the last produced bulk roll of 400 sheet film from them. It will be cut and boxed in the next few weeks. With luck this roll will last until production is resumed and there will be no more supply disruptions for this film. We will be cutting this roll into 4x5, 5x7, 8x10, 7x17, 8x20 and 12x20.

    We have also purchased the remaining inventory of Polywarmtone and Museum papers.

    The receivers at Forte have allowed production to continue based on a revaluation of the price structure of their products. We have been invited to place orders for the next 6 months. New production of all items should be available early next year.

    That's good news! And I just read a newsletter from a photo supply place saying that Forte was dead. Makes you wonder.

    Cheers,

    Very relieved-but I'm still buying that freezer!
