    And let us not forget how our dear Mr. Galley and Ilford are selfless about providing budding darkroom enthusiasts with the Ilford Multigrade Printing Manual. It is a beautiful publication, well-written and a great springboard to better technique.

    I had a very similar experience with a pack of WTMG myself, and received equally good customer service. Ilford has a dedicated customer in me, I recommend their products to all the students in the darkroom I work at.

    I know that it sounds silly, but I really wish Kodak would follow suit. PE does an amazing job substituting, but I think Kodak has a fair bit to learn from Ilford in this regard. It may not result in big bucks right away, but long term it's probably a good idea to be on touch with ordinary people in the market.

    +1 for Ilford. Great company, great service. I only use ilford papers now and will continue to and recommend it as well, stories like this make me happy that customer service still means something nowadays.

    And I completely agree.
