    4x5 paper?

    I am looking for a double-weight black and white paper. Does it not exist anymore? The only thing I can find is 5x7 Ilford RC. Nothing on Freestyle. Nothing on eBay. If it's around, could someone please point me to where I can buy it online? I'm not picky about the brand. I'm not even picky about the quality. I just need about 100 sheets of something substantial enough to be used as a post card.

    I carry some at my shop, but it is the Ilford/Harman Direct Positive paper. Not sure if that will help you or not. If so, it comes in both RC & Fiber.

    I cut down 8x10 paper to get what I like for that size.

    The last time I bought 4x5 paper I got it from Ultrafineonline, that a year or so ago so I am no sure if they still have it.

    Adorama has Ilford 4x5 but only in boxes of 1000 sheets.

    I also cut 8x10 as needed. Also, those 500' rolls (4" and 5" wide) by Ilford are very handy.

    For $0.157 a sheet, versus nearly $0.40 a sheet for the 4x6 (an inch larger than requested) post card paper.

    If 4x6 will do Adorama also has their house brand for $12.95 or $14.95 per 100 sheets. They seem to list the glossy and matte at both prices! Pearl is listed only at $12.95.

    I agree with cutting down 8x10, but sometimes pre-cut paper is nice. I buy 5x7 RC paper for some prints from 35mm (mainly.)
