    Why Potassium Dichromate in Amazon.com cheaper then B&S?!

    I am planning on printing on B&S Carbon tissue, and was looking for Potassium Dichromate in amazon.com... find 100grams for 7.49, which on the other hand Bostick an Sullivan sales it for 21.85!! am I missing something or B&S is way too expensive?!

    The B&S $21.85 size is the 250gm size.

    The 100gm is $10.25.

    Amazon's 100gm ships from Adorama.

    B&H 100gm is comparably priced. B&H has 1lb for $15. I can't add it to cart, but states that it ships.

    I bet all of them have the same Photographers Formulary label on them.

    In my experience B&S is pretty high priced on some, maybe most, things. When I was doing alt processes and some unusual toning I started out buying the chemicals from them, then discovered that the same chemicals could be bought for much less at other places. But then other places don't necessarily provide the same expertise and personal service you get from B&S if you need those things. Also, the B&S chemicals were nicely packaged in clearly labelled containers, the chemicals from the other places were in plastic bags with labels that weren't real legible, if that kind thing is important to you.
