    Black and White Paper with backprint

    Hi Guys-
    Do any of you know of a company that makes black and white paper that has a back print that says "B&W Paper"? A small photo house in my area has some and they don't seem to know where it may come from. I cannot seem to figure it out. Did Kodak paper have back print in the later days?

    Thanks,

    Patrick

    As far as I am aware, any Kodak paper that had a back print included "Kodak" in the back print.

    Packages labeled "Promaster" have that on the back of the paper -- but I do not know the original manufacturer.
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    Kodak paper doesn't say B&W. My Polycontrast II (B&W) and Supra III RA-4 both have identical back markings, Kodak Professional Paper (plus paper in French and Spanish), Do Not Copy. Same dot patterns too. Doesn't seem to be any way to tell it is B&W or color paper.

    I'll see if a student has a box of Promaster tomorrow and try to get a country-of-origin off the box.

    I am fairly sure that the ProMaster's boxes say Made in E.U.

    Thinking only of the EU members which, to my knowledge, have photo material factories, there would seem to be just the UK, France, Italy, and Germany.

    (Which doesn't really help, as it would seem to only exclude Efke as being the makers of Promaster....Croatia not being set to join the EU until around 2013.)
