The glossy finish helps makes beautiful prints. The box is also nice and sturdy and the black bag helps keep light out.

Ilford FB classic glossy paper is the best black and white printing paper available, in my opinion. I will never go back to RC paper after seeing my photographs on fiber based paper.

My son is a photography major, and B&H has been a fantastic resource for all of his needs. He will be starting to try some large format pictures, so the 11x14 paper will be great.

I've been using MG FB for many years and always found it to be dependable. Near neutral tone that adds depth when toned in selenium. I use LPD which I prefer over Dektol

If you use colored negatives on this, will it still print b&w?
Asked by: Leah
Yes the result will still be black and white. A color negative also won't have as sharp of tones as a black and white one would so it would be tricky to get a decent result.

Is this unopened sealed in original box?

Is this unopened sealed in original box?
Asked by: jenny
Yes. Inside the box is another box and the roll of paper is sealed within black (opaque) plastic. I usually keep this particular product in stock in my darkroom. I do have a 54" paper dispensor though. It is made for the photo industry and has a built in cutting blade so it makes it easy for me to use rolls of paper. The rolls allow me to cut sheet sizes that I happen to need since many of the sizes I want are odd. I use the end pieces as test strips. The main issue with using rolls of fiber based paper is the curl that it has after you cut it. The memory of the curl from being stored in a roll makes it difficult to lay flat when you print onto it. I have a variety of Saunders easels and they accommodate magnets to hold the paper flat. I also use tape to hold the edges down prior to place the easel blades over the paper. I still use magnets to hold the blades flat because the curl will actually lift the blades. I use a water bath prior to placing the exposed paper into the developer. This allows for even distribution of the chemicals over the surface of the paper, otherwise the edges curl out of the developer and the print does not get developed evenly. Alternatively, you can use your hands to hold down the exposed print in the developer.

question

How can you get this paper to dry flat and lint free? I've tried a blotter roll (unsuccessfulj); and a heated plate dryer (better but imperfect).
Asked by: David S.
Here is my cheap solution. Drain off most of the water (I don't even squegee), dry face down on screen overnight. When dry I put in my kitchen oven, set at 170F; I put the photo between two clean mat boards, with rigid cutting boards underneath and on top, and something heavy on top of it all. Leave in for 30-45 min. I then put it in a book with weight on it for 24 hrs., which keeps it flat. Heat plus pressure, just like a dry mount press. More work, yes, but cheap and no big, expensive press.Richard
