Hi All,

Remember AccuArt2 transparencies? This was the stuff allegedly made by
Pictorico but sold under a different name until Pictorico got their
marketing act together. Well, I bought a roll of the AccuArt2 knowing
that it had a "slightly" thinner coating on it, according to the people
who were distributing it about a year ago. I never really compared it
with the standard Pictorico OHP stock until recently.

I'd have to say it has about 1/3 less thickness than Pictorico OHP, and
resulted in, I'm guessing, 15-20% less density, based on some nylon
plates I had to reshoot. Rather dramatic difference for a "slightly"
thinner product.

Does anyone have any recent experience buying Pictorico OHP on the roll
directly from Pictorico? Is it more like the sheet stock they sell? I
hope so. I feel like AccuArt2 was misrepresented by their distributors
as being Pictorico OHP, with only a slight difference.

Jon
