    HI Ron,

    For me properties of the emullsion are the most important , the rest is secondary

    I only work with 8x10

    If there was one thing that i would lovr to try different that would be Matte Azo in different grade , they did used to make it .

    Ron,

    8x20 would be nice. It could be used for 8x20, 7x17 or cut in half for 8x10, cut down for 5x8 etc.

    I would also be interested in 14x17. I shoot 8x10 & 7x17, so I could cut 14x17 in half.

    Glossy surface for me. I understand it would be custom made and therefore expensive, but when the film is $8/sheet, I wouldn't mind spending some $$ for a nice paper to print the "keepers" on.

    Me too... I just scored 1300 sheets of it. Has a little fog but nothing that can't be handled.

    Thanks for the information on cost. I need more information on support types though. I think that mention of any of any papers other than Azo types are off topic and I have no answer for them. My efforts are directed at Azo types and Kodabromide/Brovira types.

    PE - you should start a new thread, instead of being buried down here 129 posts deep.

    Just checking over at the B&H website, graded fiber papers by the 100-sheet 8x10" box range from about 80 cents to $1.30 a sheet, and as another point of reference, Harman Gloss FB AI baryta inkjet paper, which doesn't even have any silver on it is $1.40 an 8.5x11" sheet. Centennial POP is also about $1.40 a sheet. Based on that $2-3 a sheet sounds about right for a handmade paper. If you're doing this in any kind of quantity, I'd think the main limiting factor is going to be drying space.

    Ron, I'd buy pre-cut 4x5 just because it would be more time consuming for me to cut up 8x10. With a small baby the convenience would be worth the price.
    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    I would definetly try it for $2-4 a sheet. I would use it for (gasp) digital contact printing mainly.
