    Ilford paper packaging ???

    I'm confused. I just received a shipment of Ilford papers from B&H. I ordered some MGIV FB (glossy and matt) and WT FB, all in packages of 25 sheets (all 8x10") as usual. But the packages are all thin boxes (think 100 sheet boxes but about half the thickness). I'm used to the envelope-style packages for 25 sheets. Not that I care one way or the other, I just want to make sure these aren't way old or something. Is this new packaging, or very old packaging? I don't recall seeing this before.

    Thanks

    To my pleasant surprise I also received new 25 sheet boxes earlier this fall—MGIV Fiber and RC, standard and warm. I like the small boxes. They are new. There's a thread somewhere here that explains how to decipher the date code on Ilford paper. My cheat sheet tells me that if the first two numbers are 76 or above, it's 2011 production.

    I think that's a step in the right direction. I'm a dealer in Canada and the envelopes sometimes get bent corners in shipping which makes them un-saleable. A small box would be better.
    Having said that, I seen any of the new boxes in Canada yet.

    Maybe I'll place an order today and see what I get.
