    Where to buy ilfrachrome paper and chemicals ?

    Where I can buy now ilfrachrome paper and chemicals. Earlier it sells silverprints.co.uk and several vendors. But now I can't find it anywhere.

    Ilford stopped production, I'm sad to say.

    Before they pulled the plug on Ilfochrome, they offered to businesses using them a pre-purchase of materials to cover their ongoing needs and to give them enough time to re-structure the way they print.

    Direct positive color printing is history.

    There's still some available for retail purchase here; but you'd have to buy a matching quantity of
    chemistry, preferably P3, and there are serious shipping restrictions with that (contains sulfuric acid). Any old or leftover paper is has probably spoiled per color balance. I'll probably do my last
    run of Ciba this summer. In the meantime I'm transitioning into Fuji Supergloss for an equivalent look,
    although it was in part the idiosyncrasies of Ciba which gave it its special look. Can't complain.
    Got a lot of wonderful prints from Ciba, but all my big ones are sold, so have to move on.

    I thought so too, until last week when I opened a box, bought from eB, that had expired in 2001. No colour problems at all, beautiful prints. Couldn't even see a difference from a fresh batch of paper. On the other hand, a recently expired open pack I had stupidly stored in a drawer in my occasionally very humid darkroom was close to unusable.
    I reckon it's all about storage conditions.

    Stephen is, and was the one that brought the news about the discontinued manufacturing by Ilford Switzerland (if I remember correctly).
