    Arches Platine should be available now, I bought 250 sheets two weeks ago. Of course I am in France it's just a bit faster but you should get it soon.

    Hi Philippe

    How does it compare to the previous batches of Platine? Have you had any problems with this new batch and which platinum process are you using? (Platinum mixed with Palladium, na2 etc...

    thanks

    I didn't notice a real difference compared to the one I used. I mostly print pure palladium and I use Na2 as contrast agent if I need any.
    I always buy paper for several years and I let it waite for two years at least before I use it. I still have some I bought four years ago.

    Thanks thats good news, i hope the samples my supplier sent are from a good batch. I bought a large order of Platine that was from the batch made last year and it all was unusable. Could you tell me the batch numbers on the paper you bought recently.

    I found two "Run Number" hand written stickers on the envelop:
    - S 104637 (but I think that one is on all envelops)
    - 58534 (I think that's the right one)

    What about it was unusable? What problems did you encounter?

    Thanks,
