To clarify today's news, which has been misreported on some other sites: it is the Swiss maker of inkjet printer paper, Ilford Imaging, that is now in bankruptcy trouble, not the English film products company Ilford, now trading as Ilford Photo http://www.ilfordphoto.com. Apparently, the old Ilford was split into two companies some years ago: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ilford_Photo

Ironically, it was then the inkjet paper business was more profitable part and expected to have a brighter future.

The moral seems to be: do not try to attach the prestige earned over the decades by one product line to a different, only slightly related one: Hasselblad, take note!

Darn.  This news bodes ill for my favourite day-to-day letter-size printing paper.  Namely, Costco's "Kirkland Professional Inkjet Glossy Paper".  At $20 for 150 sheets, it's a bargain and it looks great. 

Another forum member informed us in the past that it's an Ilford product.

Canson's sales of Baryta Photographique are about to go up significantly, me thinks.

I'm not sure going from photographic paper to inkjet photographic paper is only slightly related. Their FB Al paper was excellent.
