New55 comments on completion of Kickstarter fulfillment, adjusts price of film

Ashland, MA. April 20, 2016: New55 FILM announced today that it has completed final batches destined for Kickstarter supporters.

New55 FILM announced today that it has completed final batches of all components and rewards for its New55 PN FILM Kickstarter project.  Over 21,000 assemblies for Kickstarter and another 15,000 units for general sale have moved or are moving through final stages of fulfillment through the various channels worldwide.

New55 PN is a new, black and white instant 4x5 sheet film that provides a 4x5 negative and also a positive print.  New55 PN went into production in June of 2015, and today is in limited production subject to the scaling of the manufacturing process.

Price adjustment reflects scaling economics

A price adjustment reflecting the improved economics of manufacturing at this important milestone has been made and additional product supplied to New55's online web store HERE.

Concurrent with the announcement has been the rollout of machine-coated receiver sheets that visibly improve the smoothness and consistency of the positive peelaway print over the previously hand-coated product.

Wow, you could be a politician. :) What is needed is some straight talk about pricing and availability. When will New55 go into full production? What is the target price? Will it be sold direct, or available from other vendors?

Philip, I recommend you read the earlier posts about all that here on this blog. This is straight talk. We made a price adjustment. It is in production and available for sale, and has been for months. The current price reflects the number sold. It's that easy.
