    Platinum Paper Source

    Ron Wisner in an article at his website says
    Witness the rebirth of platinum paper as a commercial commodity.
    I have searched various forums & can not find any mention of the paper he is referring to. It would certainly make platinum printing alot easier & more consistent if such a paper is available. The Palladio Company made a palladium paper; but ran into paper source problems. Is there now a company making platinum paper?

    Ron has a lot of problems with the concept of time. To him, 'delivery tomorrow' is functionally equivalent to 'it'll be there in nine months'. So it doesn't surprise me that a reference to Palladio paper being available when in fact it has been gone for over six years is a statement that is 'close enough' to the truth.

    Is Chicago Albumen Works still around? I know they moved from Chicago several years ago, I think to Massachusetts.

    Yes - they are now located in Housatonic, MA and sell printing--out paper. Here's a link to their site:

    Retrophotographic also sell POP. I don't know if this is the same as the Chicago Albumen Works / Kentmere POP, but I do know it works. And gives great results.

    I recently bought a 1940's platinum print on that auction place, and was really impressed with the print from what was obviously an amateur negative. If anyone starts making platinum paper again I'll be on their customer list!

    Kevin Sullivan from Bostick & Sullivan replied to an inquiry about availability of a commercially manufactured paper
    I think the benefits of pre-coated paper are over
    rated, to a certain extent. Hand coating your own
    platinum or palladium paper is easy, and the
    pre-coated commercial stuff was about 3 times more
    expensive. You would have to make tons of coating
    mistakes to compensate for the difference in cost.
    This is highly unlikely.

    Also, with a precoated paper you actually have less
    control over most aspects of the process; you are
    stuck with the manufacturer's coating, and you can't
    tweak it as easily to match your negatives, or adjust
    the color, or try different papers, etc. So you gain
    one modest control, but sacrifice several others.
    I do think, though, more would try pt/pl if a pre-coated paper was available.
