    40 or 42 inch rolls of silver fibre paper

    Hello out there

    I am trying to purchase Ilford Warmtone Glossy in 100ft rolls not 32ft rolls, either 30 inch , 40 inch or 42inch width.

    Right now I am stumped with my suppliers , Ilford only makes 100ft rolls in 50 inch and 56 inch .. I can only see 42 inch roll in 32 ft lengths and I find this way of packaging produces very curly paper when at the
    printing stages even with good humidification.

    So I am wondering if anyone has seen this problem , or can you recommend a longer length roll that will give me good results . thanks Bob

    I can't imagine using fiber-based mural paper without an assistant or two. It would be impossible to avoid kinks. Curling would be the least of your problems.

    Pretty sure Bob has probably the most experience of anyone here on dealing with big Silver paper, look up his YouTube channel.

    Just imagine the amount of Nelson's Gold Toner you're going to need to warm that paper up... and the cost... at 100F to boot.
    Bob, I wish you all the best!

    Hi Mark

    That actually is my main concern as I mainly use Ilford Warmtone and using this nuetral paper will cause colour issues . The project I am working on requires 20 x 24 warmtone editionns. and then some 24 x 36 editions going to the same places . I may just have to buy the smaller length warmtone rolls , raise the humidity in my room and cut under safelight to the required size and put in an over size paper safe for printing use. Its a PIA right now for me to manage. also I have to wait up to 8 weeks for the Distributer in Canada to get the paper into the country.

    To the above point I know that there are 30 x 40 paper safes, is anyone aware of a larger paper safe ?
