Tested and confirmed working
Vintage analog photographic paper. Manufactured in Poland by Bydgoskie Zakłady Fotochemiczne, tested and confirmed working by BromideOxides Studio.
Expired between 1975 and 1991. 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 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 Jan/Feb 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. BONUS: each of first 10 packages contains early-access-bonus: suggestions based on my experience about exposition and developing time, developer formula and one printed example.
Please note, based on my experience, due to long time since vintage 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.
