    Right now (and most of the time) you will find the best prices at Badger Graphic Supplies (www.badgergraphics.com) and Midwest Photo Supply (www.mpex.com) on the phone ask for Jeff at Badger and Jim at Midwest. Their prices are ~ 55 a box.

    Who was it that said: "If you have to worry about the price... "

    Is there really that much of a pricing variation on Polaroid? I seem to see the same prices wherever I buy. Biggest factor in where I buy is who stocks what I need! There aren't many shops in my area still stocking a wide range of 4x5 Polaroid.

    Brian you can pay as much as $80 a box from some suppliers. Also, there was a fairly recent price increase from Polaroid and some suppliers still ahve a good stock at the older price. Now if that were only the case with film holders .... 5x7's jumped from ~ 34 each to ~ 55 each.
