Happy New Year from the Film Photography Project! Kodak Price Increase News.
As we prepare to usher in 2020, I’d like to take a moment to address a topic of concern to some of you - the Kodak Price Increase.
Most of you are aware that Kodak has announced a price increase on all film products as of January 1st 2020, with some items increasing in cost by as much as 30%. In their announcement, Kodak explains that the increased demand for their film products necessitates an expansion of their production end. To quote their press release, " A large ongoing financial investment has been made to increase production capacity but unfortunately the benefits of this investment will not be realized until much later in 2020, with some additional benefits being delivered in 2021."
At the FPP on-line store warehouse, we currently have varying levels of inventory on just about all Kodak products. While any amount of this inventory remains, our prices on these products will remain consistent.
When it is time for us to reorder, we are prepared to do so at the new, higher price set by Kodak. At this time, we’ll adjust our consumer prices accordingly. This will happen item by item, as well sell out and reorder, as opposed to all at once.
Please note that if you place your order at the current price and the item is out of stock, we will contact you to see if you'd like to cancel or pay the difference.
As you all know, I grew up using Kodak film, and continue to shoot it in every format available. We will continue to offer Kodak products as long as manufactured, and we will continue to offer them to you at the best possible prices.
If you haven't yet checked out our entire line of KODAK FILMS, today is the day!
Wishing you a safe and joyful New Year’s Eve and a fantastic 2020! Will see you on the radio!
