    Metallic Paper in cut sheets

    Would anybody here be interested in purchasing Fuji or Kodak paper in cut sheets? I'm trying to gauge interest before buying a giant roll and cutting it down. Also, I need to know what the demand might be for certain sizes, so I can choose the right size rolls.

    Anyone interested?

    Sure but it depends heavily on the price of course. I've never tried metallic RA4 under the enlarger, so I'd be down for maybe 50 sheets of 8x10. If that worked out well then I might consider a small pack of 16x20.

    Ditto me, i'd like to try some first in 8x10s. If the price comes to roughly the same as regular sheets then I'll have a box of 50 or so.
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    f/64 and be there.

    Count me in for some 8x10 and 11x14, I'd say.

    Best colorpaper I've ever used
    It's (at least in France) about twice the price of the regular paper but woth every cent!
    Normal paper looks quite dull in comparison to it.

    I'd be in for a a 50 sheet box of 8x10".

    Would you be cutting this down by hand or do you have access to "gear"?!
    Cheers,

    Jim.

    It doesn't seemed to have worried those already expressing interest so maybe they know where you are but I'd have thought that your location is relevant to price, given postage costs these days.

    A box of 50 8x10s might be expensive coming to the U.K. from the U.S.

    I would be interested also. I have a roll of 12" Kodak Endura Metallic and I love it.

    Just checked back in. Looks like a healthy response. Let me run the numbers. It will be more expensive than the normal stuff, as the raw material is more expensive, I'd have to pay for shipping to me before I cut it, and I have to source some boxes and such, unless people are happy with old Kodak and Ilford boxes. I will be using a Dahle paper trimmer or a Logan matt cutter with paper cutter wheel and production stops. Nice clean square cuts.

    I'll run the numbers and post back here.

    What would be the preference be for the Fuji material or the Kodak?
