    Ultrafine Papers

    Hi there,

    I've been looking for some papers to use for paper negatives and contact printing and i came across ultrafine website.

    http://www.ultrafineonline.com/ulphpa.html

    Their range of papers seems to be affordable. Anyone had tried any of their paper for negatives/printing?

    Thanks!

    PS: Sorry, I'm having problem with the search function here so i decided to post it here as well.

    I bought a pack of the Fibre in 5x7 but I haven't cracked it yet.

    I've always had good experiences with them but I know a few have gotten some colorshifted film recently.
    They are always upfront with the dating and such so if you're buying expired stuff you takes your chances

    I know this doesn't apply to the paper situation (or help you out at all ) but thought I'd throw it out here anyway. I've had good experiences so far with my dealings with them and would recommend them.

    Plus they are an advertiser/sponsor here on APUG.

    thanks bruce. while searching from other forums it seems that there are a few not satisfied customers out there.

    i haven't used any of their latest paper,
    but bought and use ( still use ) some of their
    "made in england" paper when they sold it.
    beautiful paper !
    if the new stuff is anything like the paper they rebranded
    from ilford you have nothing to worry about.

    ask me how ..

    I have used both VC and grade 3 RC for proofing and work prints, seems to be Foma. I am puzzled as why Ultrafine is not required to list the country of orgin. I find both graded and VC to meet my needs for work prints, I am looking to replace SAVICH (sp?) fiber for final prints.

    By U.K. standards these are amazing prices. A pack of 100 VC Elite 5x7 works out at about £10.50 We haven't seen such prices in the U.K. for probably 15 years at least - maybe more. At these prices I'd be gaily buying at using paper without a second thought. Ilford would have to go onto 24/7 working

    I wonder who makes this stuff and how does Ultrafine manage to sell it for these prices and still make a profit?

    I wish I hadn't seen this thread. It only revives in me and I suspect other U.K. based APUGers the old feelings that somehow we are being ripped off here in the U.K.

    Seems that B&H sells also Foma as house brand as Multitone at about the same price, lower than Freestyle house brand. At least Freestyle has always listed the country of orgin.

    interesting.. i haven't check B&H house brands.. i might end up getting some arista papers for my purpose. since there are no detailed info about ultrafine papers atleast freestyle is very open with that.

    Adorama also sells a House Brand paper in both RC and Fiber and at good prices.
    I quite like the matte version of the fiber as it is quite warm.
