    It is very light. Light enough for me to have tried to expose the wrong side a few times!

    While we're on postcard printed paper, does anyone knows of a source of 6x4 inkjet paper back-printed as a postcard?

    (Please don't shout at me, it's not for printing photos, it's a request for printing graphic cards for a charity. )

    You could print the back on yourself?


    What if we ran our 4x6 prints through the inkjet printer to put a post-card setup on the back. That way we could make it as dark or as light as we wanted. Has anyone ever printed on the back of a developed black and white print?

    Why don't we all just accept the Ilford product as the awesome product it is? There are reasons for it being printed the way it is as was said by Simon earlier. I think we should all be thankful Ilford still makes post card paper long after everyone else stopped making it. Standing ovation from me Ilford bravo for keeping this product going!!!

    Absolutely. I even made a single size easel to print on this paper. I still have an almost full box I must use up though.

    I am not dissing the Ilford paper at all. I was just curious if my batch was alright.
    Take it easy Stephen

    I didn't think you were dissing it, I admit I was curious about the density of the ink a few years ago when i first printed on it. but I love the material and thought ide say thanks for it. its great stuff isn't it shimoda?

    Hey chaps

    Any idea where I can purchase this product in New Zealand? I've asked around in the past and gotten blank stares, pretty much.

    Cheers

    Ilford Postcard stock has been great for APUG. I think the Postcard Exchange is the easiest way to get to see a lot of real prints from a good number of active APUG members. Even if they're not intended as fine prints or mounted and matted, and they can get a bit mangled in transit, they're much more representative of the participants' actual work than the scans in the online galleries, and it's more fun, in my opinion, to have real postcards arriving in the mail all the time. Some participants just print on other paper and cut it to size, of course, and we've occasionally had alt-process prints in the Postcard Exchange, but Ilford Postcard stock really makes it convenient for a lot of people to participate.

    Thanks Ilford!
