I am somewhat surprised by the low order. My sense was that it would be higher, based on the fact that there seems to be so much more stirring in the world of ULF. However, I do realize that many of us have substantial stockpiles from last year. I ordered five boxes of 14X17 and two boxes of 16X20 this year and will double that, now that you've extended the deadline.
I think Matt has a good idea regarding the "expression of interest" process. Probably many of us would order more film if finances correlated with the production schedule.
Thank you very much for the notification. You can count on me as a loyal customer. I will be able to place a consistent order with you at least once a year.
