Nigel Dear of Retro Photographic comments "In keeping with our quest
to source and market the more unusual black and white products, we are very
pleased to be able to offer these very different photographic papers from Slavich
Company. The Bromportrait 80 paper has a traditional emulsion on a quite heavy
(276sm/m2) FB paper base giving a warmish tone image, the semi-soft grade yielding
a very soft image tone, quite 70's, and the silk finish is nicely textured almost
like an embossed paper"'. He adds "although we announced these
papers back in October last year, it is only now that they have actually arrived
in the country and are in stock. I am pleased to say that the interest generated
has been very high and we have been busy fulfilling orders taken before the
papers were in stock".
