    4x5 3 piece box for shipping??

    Hi, I am just starting to get into 4x5 photography and do not have any spare boxes to send out my film for processing. Does anyone have a spare 3 piece box I could pay you shipping for? Or even buy it off you for a reasonable price... Also another question on this, when I unload the film from the holders and say I were shipping in a 3 piece box. Do I simply stack the film sheets on top of one another in the box? Does there need to be anything between them?

    Thanks!
    -Sam

    I stack my unexposed film on top of each other, emulsion facing the same way throughout (which is how it comes from the manufacturer), and have never had a problem. I suppose if you placed them in a too-large box they could slide around and cause some minor scratching, which is why you want to transport them in a box that is similar in size to the original.
