Hi Dave,

The Pictorico website only offers the U.S. standard of 8.5" x 11" and
13" x 19" in sheet film. So far those, at least, have stayed the same.

I'm mostly concerned if the OHP roll stock has somehow been reformulated
to accommodate being on a roll or whatever, since AccuArt2 was touted as
being the same stuff, but quite certainly is not.
