OK, first, to be completely clear, are you saying that the only version still available was glossy and that's discontinued? Or, as the Kentmere Web page for papers indicates


that there's also a Finegrain surface and that's what's discontinued?

Second, in another thread, we had this exchange:

Does this thread explain why you haven't gotten back with the answer in that one? Also, was it my question that prompted the discontinuation?

Oh well, I probably just bought my first and last package of Kentmere Fineprint FB. At least you've announced its discontinuation before I set up the temporarily-converted-bathroom-darkroom next week and try printing on it. Money wasted but not time.
