    Price Increases ILFORD Photo products

    Dear All,

    Following a thread on recent price increases from other companies, a few people have sent me pm's asking when we will increase ILFORD Photo prices in 2008, we already have done so by 4.5% to distributors on all products
    ( Film, Paper and Chemistry ) on May 1st, it was a little earlier to the USA, Canada and Latin America. We have no plans for further increases in 2008.

    Well, I don't mind a modest price increase as I'm happy Ilford is still doing business. Thanks for the heads-up.

    YEah, that's really a pretty small increase. No problem.
    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    It's about what we'd all recognise as near the true overall rate of inflation, except if you live at No 10 where it is about half this figure. Sorry couldn't resist. I just cannot get the image of someone playing the bagpipes while the U.K. burns out of my head

    Thanks for the heads up Simon. 4.5% isn't bad compared to how the price of everything else is soaring.

    no problem, I will just pass on the price increase to my clients. 4.5% on top of DKK0,- - I am sure they won't mind. On a serious note: not a problem at all, I am just grateful that you keep your production lines running.

    Oh, people...

    There is FOOD INCREASING PRICES on planet, energy increasing prices, so one of things least touches me is Ilford prices increasing. I will continute to buy Ilford as I can, and not to worry about it. I am more afraid will food, water and energy be too expencive in near future...

    Fuji announced several weeks ago that, in Great Britian, they are increasing prices on all their products. Who's next, I wonder?

    I'm just glad that Ilford got over their problems, and are now maintaining the great range of B&W products for we enthusiasts. And at least we can now buy analogue equipment at low prices as everyone goes digital.

    And, as for politicians, I despair of where we're going to end up with any of them in control. I'd feel much more confident if the guys who rescued Ilford were running the country...at least they've shown that they understand the real world.
