    8x20 Neg Storage

    Anyone know of a source for 8x20 neg sleeves? The VC store USED to have them but no more. Do YOU have got any you can sell unto me? Thanks!
    Also, I seem to recall a post about 8x20 resources but dang if I can't find it! Can someone post the URL? Again thanks!

    Hollinger has a lot of archival stuff for ULF.

    I found some paper envelopes here

    And ULF film boxes

    I am not sure about plastic sleeves but they might be able to make them for you.

    Try clear bags.com. They have nice bags for my 8x20 negs and are not to expensive.

    Jim, are these the ones with the adhesive strip? Do you just cut it off? If not, which ones? Thanks for your help!

    Re: 8x20 Neg Storage

    Let me start by saying I shoot 7x17. I purchased some bags from clear bags that were something like 11x17, so there was lots of extra plastic flopping around. Sandy King turned me on to paper negative sleeves. I now order a buffered paper from Light Impressions (I think it is called Apollo) that is 14x18, trim 1" to make it 14x17, then fold it in 1/2 to make a 7x17 negative sleeve. I store the negatives in boxes purchased from Hollinger. I also use the 14x18 paper between my mounted, but unmatted prints for storage.

    You should be able to purchase 16x20 buffered paper to make 8x20 negative sleeves.

    For boxes, I use 16x20 inch box from printing paper and I put film into 2 8-10 office sleeves. Works very good.

    I just finished developing my 8x20 negatives last night from my recent trip. The bags I use from clear bags are:8 7/16" x 20 1/4". My 8x20 negs fit very nicely into these bags. Great bags for this format with just the right amount of room.
