    AFAIK it is still being made and is readily available, at least in rolls, from Kodak. I haven't used it yet but know a few labs that use it, and have a few samples of it. A really unique paper, would love to try it out, it's a shame not many people seem to know about it.
    Film's not dead, it's just got a negative image.

    I know Graeme Hird uses it. He seems to like it quite well. One of my printers also uses it, along with Fuji Crystal Archive paper, but I haven't tried it.

    A very nice paper for the right type of photos. I haven't printed a lot of it, but I have several shots where I think the paper adds to the image. I bought my 11x14 at Adorama or B&H a year or so ago. It looks like B&H has it in rolls.

    My lab had some and I have a couple images printed on it. Quite nice results.

    Dear fatboy22,

    It has a very interesting look. I liked it for a number of shots but unfortunately, it only seems available in rolls right now. MPIX offers printing on it if want to check it out cheaply.

    Hi fatboy22,
    I use this paper quite a bit. I love the look it gives and I continue to get suprised with every print. I guess I use it so much because it reminds me of Ilfochrome prints(my favorite).
    I purchased 5-6 boxes of multiple sizes a few years ago so I am unsure of the availability in sheet form today.

    does anyone actually know how it is made to be mettalic? I've heard metal flakes and air bubbles in the base.

    Douglas,

    How does it look under glass when framed? Do you lose any of the metallic look?

    Hey Jamie,
    that's a great question!? I never really looked to closely until you asked.
    So, I ran and grabbed a framed print and checked it out and guess what? It does seem to loose a little bit of the metallic look under glass, not completely but just a little bit.
    Now this is just my assessment and i may be just off my rocker
