Thread: Where to buy film sleeves?

  1. #1

    Default Where to buy film sleeves?

    Regarding to this, anyone can tell me where can i get them from? I try to look for it but it is very very expensive? dunno if it is the reasonable price... they are selling at $19 for 25 sheets? about $0.76 per sheet?

    Where can I get those cheaper one like what the photolabs use to put our negative when we develop photos with them.

    Thanks!

    Get the paper type from Ruby, it's quite cheap there.

    Anyway, the plastic type is not that good as there's a tendency for the negatives to get stuck to the plastic. However, if you're not careful with the paper ones, even a small drop of water on the emulsion side of the film can cause your negatives to be stuck to the paper...
