    Large printing paper... e.g. 40x50" available anywhere?

    Hi all,
    I've been "limiting" myself to 20x24" papers, e.g. Ilford FB, but would like to print larger for an exhibition; I know that 40x50" wasn't all that uncommon in the past. My darkroom can handle the size, so I'd like to try it. Can't seem to find a supplier thus far. Any pointers welcome. Graded/Multigrade, FB, RC....I don't mind (FB preferred).

    B&H and all the major stores can get this for you.

    B&H is out of stock and even before the lockdown, their special orders were taking much longer than the 2-4 weeks they advertise. Freestyle has quite a few in stock: https://www.freestylephoto.biz/categ...ttr%5B%5D=5-24

    The papers are all made in Europe, so why not look for a European distributor?** Or as the OP seems to be in Australia, maybe Fuji still make some large rolls for the Japanese home market? That would be slightly nearer at least.

    Also, stating the obvious, at those sizes one is looking at paper delivered in rolls, not pre-cut. Good luck


    ** eg. Fotoimpex, Macodirect, Retrocamera, AG-Photographic etc. etc.
