Also, Atlantis Silversafe is still distributed by its manufacturer,
Atlantis European LTD. The latest address is:

    Atlantis European LTD
    2 St. Andrews Way
    London E3 3PA
    +44 171-537-2727
    Fax: +44 171-537-4277

I'm not sure Atlantis offers the Silversafe in 50 gsm; perhaps
they've changed their paper manufacturing process, but the last word
I have is they offer Silversafe in 40 gsm and 120 gsm weights.

As a side note, a cheaper alternative is manufactured and exclusively
sold by Conservation Resources (stateside). This paper, which seems
to match the specifications of Silversafe in every respect, is known
as CRPP1.
