Default Remember Kentmere Fineprint?

As a box of Ilford Multigrade FB is now hitting the highspots, eg a box of 50 sheets 12x16" is not very far under 100, thought it might be time to do a reminder about the other Harman paper, 'Fineprint', where a box of 12x16" is only 55, & that's including the increase.
We've done an offer on the 4 main sizes at Silverprint.

Thanks for the information Martin, irrespective of price I actually prefer the look of Fineprint in gloss finish, it also tones very well in selenium.

I do miss Fineprint warmtone though, especially for lith printing although Fomabrom Variant 123 has an almost identical base.

Kentmere Fineprint is my favourite paper, Has anyone done a comparison between it and the Ilford version?

This offer is certainly very good value and should provide many of us with a cushion against the recent increases.

It's one of my favourite papers, too. I find the 'finegrain' surface in particular gives lovely, well separated highlights.

It was also one of my personal favorite papers, I loved the warmtone finegrain surface, at one time I printed almost exclusively on the warmtone paper, sadly no more,Richard
