Spindrift.click, like its monthly PDF predecessor takes no advertising. However without the stalwart support of three companies Spindrift would not have been possible. We thank Agfa, Fujifilm and Esko for supporting our subscription model so generously since Spindrift’s inception way back in 2003. We wouldn’t be here without you.
