    I love the idea of 532 being a real paper.
    I burned a complete roll now, and to me, this paper wasn't easy to handle in any case.
    But I am fascinated from the somehow unique look. Great potential there.

    I definitely will buy the next roll, and some sheets of 132 for comparism.
    But cutting down the roll is hard, this papers behave like a solid metal spring :-)

    I just cut some sheets ra4 paper - I'll happily wrestle an a gry snake under red light as opposed to a roll of ra4 in the dark
    Maybe I should give that 532 another chance. Or...maybe I shouldn't. If it's impossible to get, there's no point in falling in love with it!

    I haven't tried ordering directly from foma; maco lists all 532 as sold out and it's been like that for a while I think.

    Ok.
    But reseller's selling out doesn't mean production stop, so there seems to be a chance to purchase further.
    What's about this guy from Norway who is shipping to the US, as far as I know?

    Maco and Impex have been the biggest sellers of Foma over the years, selling woldwide.
    Years ago it happened that Czech students had to by Paper in Germany (Maco); Foma has been empty :-)
    During this period, it was not able for german people to by directly from foma via Foma's european onlineshop.
    Since one year or so, Foma is selling now directly to me, and you don't get Foma's pape.
    Maybe some policy in the background, perhaps reorganizing the structures.

    Could just be maco's stocking policy for all we know. I generally buy from a supplier here in the Netherlands but I know he gets his stuff from Germany. In the end, it all seems to go through impex.

    Nope.
    Maco and Impex have been competitors the very last years.
    Regarding their selling policy, this could be in change since some time, but without details, I don't want to speculate, nor is this the right theme for this thread.

    I mean the stuff I get here runs from impex. I know maco and impex compete.
    The only relevant aspect of this is the question if 532 is still being produced or if Foma has stopped shipping it to distributors and is selling off remaining stock through their own Web shop.

    If this is your question, we may get a fairly answer soon; as a customer of Foma products over years, I have directly asked Foma now.

    Best,
