Thank you for the heads up! :) I hope it will also be available in other countries soon.

You weren't allowed to buy paper? Who decides for you what you can buy?
I thought that was the significant other's job. At least that's what I've been told. :idunno :hide:duc

...

The government decided only shops selling food, medicine, books, ... could be open.
So Aldi could only sell food and no photo paper...

If books are being sold then paper is being made. To shut down the photo paper industry while allowing other paper businesses to remain open seems illogical and anti-science. Maybe the government believes the photo paper makers are too dumb to work safely. Or maybe the book paper makers are expendable. Whatever, the same illogic could easily lead to banning certain foods they think are not essential either.

But, by golly, our governor made sure to keep the liquor and marijuana stores open.

The world is being shaved by a drunken barber.

We still get the adverts but they are smaller. Everything seems to be sold in smaller amounts - packages of ice cream, chips, cereal, cheeses and meats. But neither the price nor my belly get smaller.

Got 6 packs.
Surface is definitely smoother than the Sihl I am using actually, and even a tad better than older production.
At least as good as Canon Photo Paper Plus Glossy II (PP-201).
Black level L=1.8 with OEM PBK and Precision Colors CO.

Is it a RC paper or cast coated as the Sihl 280 quick dry? Makes a big difference for scratch resistance and pizza wheels with some printers.
Is there manufacturer given on thepackage?

Is there any manufacturer's ID or name visible on the backside of the package ?

The 300 gsm suggests the paper could be made by Netbit.
