Product description

Tested and confirmed working

Vintage analog photographic paper. Manufactured in Poland by Bydgoskie Zakłady Fotochemiczne, tested and confirmed working by BromideOxides Studio. 

Expired 1985. Expiration date is not always clear. Paper comes from same origin that sealed boxes available on other listings. Please visit Photographic Paper collection if you wish to collect sealed box. 

Boxes of vintage analog photographic paper were collected by me in autumn/winter 2020/21 and since then stored in cool and dry place (5-10°C . 55-65% humidity). Boxed were opened and tested by me in March 2021, then if confirmed working - packed in light-proof box that contains 15 sheets each, and again stored in cool and dry place.

Papers are used by me for everyday work in dark room, so please come back soon for more available tested vintage photographic papers.

Please note, based on my experience, due to long time since vintage analog photographic papers expiration time, grade does not make much (read: any) difference between Hard, Normal and Special. It shows a little bit difference from Soft to Extra Hard. Please consider it while choosing grade.

Papers not in original box as  time was brutal with him.

  • smoke that can be reduced by D166 developer or by other methods (see READ MORE below) but I prefer to keep it. It's not so high and developed carefully could give lovely vintage look and feel.
