LODIMA gelatin silver chloride paper is a contact speed printing paper. We have received many requests for LODIMA paper with higher contrast. And in response to your requests we are about to order a new run of LODIMA paper with higher contrast—think of it as either a grade 3 with more contrast or as a grade 4.

The normal quantity we must order is 10,000 square meters—the equivalent of just shy of 2,000 boxes of 100-sheets of 8x10. That is a huge quantity.

We have been told by the manufacturer that if we get our order in by March 15 they will make the paper for us even at a quantity less than 10,000 square meters.

If we can order 10,000 square meters the price will be pretty much the same as the paper from the last run. In smaller quantities the price will be higher. We were told it could be as much as 25 Euros ($33.50) higher for a box of 8x10 100-sheets. So we are hoping to get as many orders as possible to keep the already high price as low as we can.

At this time, place your order by number of boxes in the sizes you want. As before, we can have paper made in the following sizes:
8x10—25, 100, and 250 sheet boxes
8x20-100 sheets
12x20-100 sheets
11x14-100 sheets
9x11-100 sheets
10x12-100 sheets
14x17-100 sheets
16x20-50 sheets
20x24-50 sheets

If there are orders for only a couple of boxes in any one size we may not be able to supply that size.

At this time, we do not need checks or credit card information. We just need your orders. If we have sufficient orders, we will ask for those things after March 15. As before, we will not deposit checks nor charge credit cards until we need to pay for the paper.

We will be testing the paper for contrast and if it does not have significantly greater contrast that all previous runs of LODIMA paper, we will not order it.

We look forward to hearing from you as soon as possible. If interested email to us at michaelandpaula@michaelandpaula.com
