    This is what I use for film negatives, but they make they specifically for glass plates also...

    If you click on sizes, the last one on the list is 8 1/16" x 10 1/16" x 1/8" -- for 8x10 plates. They also have them for 4x5 and 5x7 plates.

    You'll find many of us on this forum don't appreciate it when someone's first post to the forum points to a Facebook page. Myself, I won't touch Facebook content, for love nor money.

    a question, are wet plate properly processed emulsions as sturdy as dry plate emulsions?
    Hi Randy.
    Yes, there are always better ways to store such materials, but I don't have a museum budget, so I make do with standard Gaylord Archival boxes and interleave my plates with acid free paper. It works well for my needs.

    Wet plate negatives and tintypes are VERY sturdy once varnished and properly cured, yes. (properly cured means leaving them in a drying rack for at least a week before putting them into storage: the varnish is still a bit soft after heating it and it needs more time to fully cure) I have varnished glass negatives stored this way for over 2 years and so far I have had no problems with the storage technique.

    Good to know varnish needs a long drying time.

    When I make something worthy of archival storage I will step up.

    Thank you

    Drew, I did some homework before recommending storage methods for dry plates (my recommendations are never arbitrary. ). The dry plate boxes and envelopes sold through Gaylord (and a couple other places) are the same products used by Library of Congress and many other preservation establishments. No need to reinvent the wheel here.

    Cheers,
    Jason

    Tin Can: Your suggestion to buy new from Lane is what I have done in 4x5. What about the ISO 200 plates from Beautiful Thing? Anybody have experience with them?

    There are only three types of mounting flanges; too big, too small and wrong thread!

    As others have said, I purchase and use Gaylord archival products for storing glass negatives at the museum where I volunteer as a photo preservationist.
    I dream in black and white.
