Yes, paper is light as a sheet but weighs a good amount as a package of
250, or 500 sheets. It also need to be wrapped quite well as it is
fragile. I would think that a distributor such as AW Crestwood would be
a possibility (or even Photographers Formulary, Artcraft, B&S). If it
works, and I know it does, than a small marketing program should be
enough to make it work. Just a few thoughts. The pure silver group is
putting together a meeting some where in England ( possible Scotland) I
haven't paid much attention as I don't plan on getting over there just
for that, but you might be interested.
