Paper query

I have just ordered some more Ilford gallery Prestige A3 paper and have been told that the reason the semi gloss is not available is because Ilford went into liquidation last year and as the supplies of various papers run out there will be no more.
So I now need to find a new paper for my Canon Pro 9000 Mk2. (dye not pigment ink)
The supplier said the Permajet brand were trying to replicate the Ilford papers,
Is it worth trying, or would anyone recommend using Hahnemule Gloss and semi gloss paper, I have heard they are very good papers and the ICC profiles are easy to obtain.
Any recommendations for "best quality" papers would be appreciated.
Charles.

Re: Paper query

Perma Jet are very good. I think that they have downloadable profiles and they will also do you a custom profile free.

There are sample packs available that will give a range of papers to trial.

Our local supplier is 42 Ltd and they often have Permajet paper on offer, but they claim to sell at 10% under RRP anyway.

Could not find the test packs on the main web site, but here are the 5 sample packs on the 42 web site

Re: Paper query

At the time of Ilford Imaging's demise, AP ran the story about Permajet stepping in to manufacture equivalents. See here.

There was a later news story about a reopening under new owners. I can't recall where I read it, but a search turned up this page http://developingtank.blogspot.co.uk...be-reborn.html

Re: Paper query

Thanks Graham, I had a look and they certainly do a range of papers to consider.

Stephen, that's good news, if they continue to market "Ilford" paper it would save re sorting the printer profile, thanks.
Charles.

Re: Paper query

Ilford are still going strong making film, chemicals etc. They are now owned by Harman - who make pretty decent paper!

Re: Paper query

Hi -oy- I got this from the web this afternoon.
Ilford Imaging to be reborn.
CR Kennedy and Chugai press release: WORLD FAMOUS ILFORD BRAND NOW IN SAFE HANDS AND TO RE-EMERGE AS A LEADER IN THE GLOBAL IMAGING AND GRAPHICS MARKETS

Chugai Photo Chemical Co Ltd of Tokyo, Japan and CR Kennedy & Company Pty Ltd of Melbourne, Australia, have been successful in their bid for the ILFORD Trade Marks and Associated Assets.
Ilford is a world-famous brand and is one of the great pioneers of the photographic industry, with a proud 135-year history.

The acquisition will see leading products such as Ilford Gallerie Prestige and Ilford Omnijet range continue, with existing ICC profiles, on a world-wide basis.

A new company, Ilford Imaging Europe GMBH has been established as a joint venture and will be responsible for all product development, production, logistics, sales and marketing activities. Clement Kennedy and Arnoud Mekenkamp have been appointed as joint managing directors.

The Ilford brand is now in safe hands. Together, both partners have a combined history of 146 years in the photo industry. They are committed to implementing long-term strategies for growth, with respect for the history and traditions of the Ilford brand. Ilford has for 135 years represented outstanding quality; this will continue.
Good news.

Woody, my stockist still has some of the papers but it is "remaining" stocks at the wholesalers. New supplies are expected "in the autumn".
Charles.

Re: Paper query

If you do feel like a change, I normally use Hahnemuhle Photo Rag. Somerset Enhanced Velvet is very similar. For gloss, I've been impressed with the Canson glossy paper. But I use a pigment printer (Epson 3880).

Re: Paper query

Thanks for that Stephen, I have been looking at Hahnemuhle paper and they seem to be about the best for fine art papers, I used a sample pack for some images of Tudor re-enactment actors and was impressed with the result. They seem especially good for monochrome images.

Re: Paper query

Hi Blackadder, you could try R K Photographic alias the darkroom in Potters Bar, Roy normally buys up bulk stuff if it is going out of production or I have always used Fotospeed paper and found it consistent.
