Hello Blix (and welcome),

I do too. Right now, I can ship a kit to Bergen, Norway for $287 USD (DHL) and it would be there in two days. I am working on a slower, cheaper method.

I'll keep you posted.

Good point.

It is a VERY difficult process. The problem is that the stuff normally goes by air - I'm trying to find a way to get small quantities (ORM-D) shipped other ways or less restrictive ways.

I am working on. I plan to go to Europe and shoot at some point too, so I think it's worth the effort to find a cost effective way to get chemistry there. I already know that the kits are being viewed differently than packed raw chemistry.. slowly, but surely.

Kerik,
Tell me about it. When I moved to Switzerland it was going to cost me
$600USD JUST to ship my chemicals over. You HAVE TO use a Bond shipper,
lots of paper work ect....

Quinn,

You've probably thought of this already, but for those of us that want to do collodion while traveling overseas, it would be great if you could provide a shipping pipeline to get the materials there. I know someone who is going to spain this year and it's going to cost her a fortune to ship her chemicals over there.

Hi Jimmy,

Right now, I cannot do any international shipping of liquid chemicals. I am trying to find a way I can do this that would be cost effective. So far, I'm not having very good luck - however, stay tuned, you never know what might happen.

Thanks.
Regards,
Quinn Jacobson

Other pages that need to be scrolled to be viewed are the following:

http://www.altphotosource.com/store/products.asp?cat=1

http://www.altphotosource.com/store/products.asp?cat=12

http://www.altphotosource.com/store/products.asp?cat=14

All other pages are fine without scrolling horizontally.

Thanks for the info Zeke. I'm not sure I can adjust for that browser size, but it's good to know.

Thanks Steve!

1. Yes, the customer will know when his/her order is shipped and have an idea of arrival date.

2. Great idea. I am working on a couple of them now, I will add them as I move along. 

Again, I appreciate the support and feedback.  
Regards,
Quinn Jacobson

Congratulations!!! The site looks great Q., already placed my first order.
Everything looks logical and seems to run smoothly.

Some possibilites?

1. Can the site kick off an email to alert the customer of the shipping and
impending arrival of the chemistry?

2. Any consideration regarding some boutique formulas such as Lea's
landscape collodion or Quinn's favorite etc.???

I know it's early and I imagine you're really going to have your hands full.
but it looks like it's off to a great start.

all the best,
steve

Labware and supplies: YES. I've been doing some research and inquiring about offering scales, hydrometers, PH Strips, alcohol lamps, bottles (of all sizes and uses), dippers, baths, trays, whetstones, glass cutters and boards, etc etc. It may be a process, but I hope to be a one-stop shop for all things wet plate.

I'm a bit nervous about striking a deal with a supplier and find out wet plate photogs don't want the brand, style or flavor. I'll have to baby-step it a bit and see what happens.

Diane,

That's correct.

It's "context sensitive." In other words, if you are in the detail view, you will see the detail of the next or previous item. Also, if you are in the thumbnail view/regular view, and you select previous or next, you will see the previous or next item in that same context (thumbnail/regular view). That is confusing to talk about and I may have missed your point.

I found it interesting when browsing through the products that when I clicked on the details and looked at them, when I pressed the previous and next buttons at the bottom, it referred me back to the last item whose details I had looked at.  I expected it to show me either the previous or next item in the listing.  Hope that makes sense.
Diane :)
