    Mac Paper Adds Kodak Full Product Line

    Well, well, well--looks like the new Kodak has landed itself quite a distributor. Being a printer, I just got the news on my e-mail that Mac Papers has added the complete Kodak line. Mac Papers is a pretty sizable paper company throughout the southern states with 22 branch locations. I buy from Mac and have been to their distribution center in Charlotte. It's BIG. Huge. So if there's 21 others like that, then Kodak has landed themselves a nice fish.

    This is Eastman Kodak - the company that still has a film manufacturing machine, but otherwise has nothing to do with film.

    Kodak Alaris is the one that still manufactures colour photographic paper, and sells and distributes still films and photographic chemistry.

    What's the connection between Mac Papers and the analogue part of Kodak or is this the old Kodak with now nothing to do with analogue materials.

    Just curiosity on my part and seeking to find out if your announcement is good news for the Kodak we analoguers need.

    Thanks

    It seems to me that in the past Kodak had marketed paper for the printing trade (NOT photo paper) manufactured by others.

    This is the "new" Eastman Kodak: http://www.kodak.com/ek/US/en/Home.htm

    The stuff we are interested in here on APUG can be found referenced under the tab "Kodak Brand Partners" - the Kodak Alaris sub-links.

    Eastman Kodak is now almost exclusively a player in the Commercial Printing industry.

    This is exactly what Perez has been telling us, and anyone else who would listen to him, for years now. And some messengers here have been half beaten to death when pointing out that simple fact.

    Good to see everyone is finally coming on board with it. Better late than never...

    "There is very limited audience for the arty stuff, and it is largely comprised of other arty types, most of whom have no money to spend because no one is buying their stuff either. More people bring their emotions to an image than bring their intellect. The former are the folks who have checkbooks because they are engineers, accountants, and bankers—and generally they are engineers, accountants and bankers because they are not artists."
