    COT 320 Supplier

    I'm looking to buy COT 320 in full-sheet size (22x30 or whatever). Any suggestions where to get it, or does everyone sell this stuff for the same price?

    TIA,
    Kerik

    you surely will find a suppplier in the USA;, but I may keep you prevent that I have bad result with the batch number 5206. It seems that there are ferric particle in it as my print get dark spot in the developing step.
    5205 was great batch but 5206 look more hard. It is just a problem for platinum palladium as it won't affect kallitype or other alt process.

    I contact Bergger in Frnace to get mor einformation . But at first avoid this batch.

    Kerik,

    I recall being told that B+S was the only place to get full sheets. That may have changed, however.

    Bergger has kept good control over pricing in the US, so there is no discounting going on that I am aware of.

    Arches strikes again! This is Platine deja vu. Some batches great, others nearly useless.

    I have been using this same batch of paper making Ziatypes but haven't seen any problems yet (other than from me overexposing the print ). How big is this dark spot on your print?

    I just purchased the paper in the size mentioned from B&S last week. They didn't have it in stock but drop shipped it from Berrger in Rockford, IL.

    Mike,

    Do you remember what the price was? Do you know what batch number you have??

    For those who don't know, COT 320 is made by Arches for Bergger. It is very similar to Arches Platine, although (up until now) more consistent. Bergger mostly makes labels that they slap on products made by other companies.

    FWIW,

    Art Craft Chemicals is a Berrger dealer and sells paper for slightly less than B&S in all sizes, however I don't think they actually stock sizes other than 8x10 and drop ship from Berrger in all larger sizes. If you live east of the Mississippi you can save a little on the shipping and a wee bit on the paper.

    this are little dots easily viewable on the mask border or in the sky aera.
    I contacct Bergger and will know more soon. May be the problem come at the cutting stage and don't touch all the batch. but the package I have it. This will be only viewale with platinum palladium.;
