                Comments about Ilford Multigrade FB Classic Gloss Variable Contrast Paper (11 x 14", 50 Sheets):

                Very similar to paper I used consistently 10 years ago, if not the exact same except for the name. Professional grade and high quality. Rich blacks and bright whites. Not overly glossy, but enough sheen. I would only use Ilford black and white darkroom paper.

                I print all my 120 work with this paper. The blacks are always pure and same for the whites. If using a blotter book. They linty if not dried properly

                The paper allows for such ranges of subtle grays that my photos really get that extra dimension to it. It's great, easy to work with. It's such a soft paper, and incredibly archive-able (is that a word?)

                  Great quick shipment of the product. Arrived in perfect condition, at a nice cool temperature. Paper quality is consistent even from box to box with very little variation in print results!
