I want to reprint negs from a show I did in the late 80s on Oriental Seagull (Fibre) Graded paper (8x10). I have not used the paper since then and I am wondering what today's Seagull G is like in comparison to the 80s version. Does it look and feel the same? Are there any noticeable differences? Is it essentially the same paper or has it been "improved" beyond recognition?

People say it's changed. I used it then, and I've used it recently, and it does seem a bit different, but I couldn't quite tell you how, since my own technique has changed since then. It's still a good looking paper.

I still have some of the old Seagull and for me it is a lot colder than the current crop.
