    Hello!

    There is a new project that will bring us back the lovely Forte Paper! Look at the following link for more information, that sounds great!

    Sound like a great idea, though this line makes scratch my head:

    "The revenue from these sales leads will cover about 1/3rd of the costs. We will take on the rest of the costs."

    Doesn't seem like a sustainable business plan

    It´s a chance to get it back, so every business plan is acceptable. I have ordered too.

    I just used my last sheet. I do have a bunch of the Forte RC and I thought I would try it with Lith and sure enough the RC works. Its not as nice, but I can use this until something else comes along. Anyone else tried the Forte RC? I'm trying to decide if I should buy my local shop's $500 worth of Forte RC or save my money for the fiber based stuff if it ever comes to be.

    (3 scans of un-toned Lith prints done on Forte RC Multigrade)

    I signed up and put in a pre-order. I think the business model has to prove that there is intent to buy before the financial backers / Venture capitalists / holding company or whatever eats the other cost to bring the venture online. I think the initial outlay of bringing the kettles and coating line online is the larger cost. Once running, it's relatively easy to run future batches. Which hopefully is where the profit comes from.

    I know, I was just kind of joking around. It just makes it sound like they are only ever going to recoup 1/3 of the costs via sales. I wish them luck and will probably put my name down for a couple boxes. I think the future of film is going to be more of a direct-to-customer type model, so I think it's great that the manufacturer is trying to directly gauge interest by asking the customer.

    Never trust someone who can't spell their own domain name.

    Or is this a language thing, ton instead of tone?
