    I have been debating recently whether to try this paper but with all the good things I have heard or read today it seems to be that I will order some tomorrow. I am almost out of Foretzo paper that I acquired a large quantity of and this is in my price range and have had good luck with Adorama shipping lenses etc. It is great to read about people that actually use this product and not just the opinion of the sales person. I had my order made out with Glossy paper but I see now that I should order the matte finish. Thanks again APUG.

    You should get BOTH. They are completely different in characteristics.

    They do have a sample pack that has 5 of each (I think) if you just want to just try it out.
    Just remember, glossy is about 2 stops faster than matte. Former does not tone well but the latter does.
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?

    The toning is the reason why I discarded the glossy selection. Now I only print 11x14 so my paper selection is limited by my budget.

    Ah, I see. You'll love the matte paper then. It tones beautifully in brown and selenium. The paper base is rather whitish but emulsion is quite tonable. It has a slight green cast so you might want to lightly selenium tone it if neutral black is desired. Brown tone is just beautiful.

    Here's my best result out of this paper.

    Nice browns. I do a lot of landscape so the toning will work well for me. I also added a small order (10) of the glossy just to see.

    Off topic for this subforum, but I'm also curious about their color paper products...

    As I understand it, Ilford's facilities and people are available for hire.

    And they are in the EU.
    One has to distinguish betwenn Ilford (brand) and Harman (company).
    I understand that Harman told us you will not find a film / paper sold under the Ilford brand and another one. The Kentmere label is another story...
