    Printfile pages are the only film storage I’ve ever used.

    I was pleased to see that Printfile offers the strong binder and slipcase combinations that I used to get from Light Impressions. That company apparently decided to mistreat its customers to the point that none of us want to deal with it further.

    The binder & slipcover is my favorite way to safely store my films in Printfile pages. I like to keep a 750-gram canister of silica gel desiccant in the same enclosure with my slip-covered binders so that fungus cannot grow on the films and ruin them. The silica gel canister gets recharged by baking in an oven at 300F for 2 hours every 2 years or so.

    Thanks! I too use only Print File pages to store my negatives. I store them in the Print File WorkBox which is solid, and protects them and keeps dust out.

    After many years of using light Impressions I made my my last couple of purchases from Print File and was very pleased.

    I also use them regularly. Great stuff, and they offer a lot more than just negative sleeves too.

    How does one work out shipping to Australia for the international hole 4x5 neg holders in 100 sheet lots?

    I would be looking at 4 lots of 4x5" 100 sheet neg files.

    I presume Mick did the same as me & went through the ordering system to try & get a price for postage to Australia. I couldn't see any way to do this and gave up; it seems to be designed just for USA orders. I'd like to know if the postage rates are reasonable or if I should just order direct from somewhere like B&H.

    Yep, that's exactly what I did.

    Their price, makes the Australian distributor's price look like a comparison between a Rolls Royce price and a Volkswagen Beetle price.

    I stopped buying Print File neg holders because of the extremely excessive pricing, buying direct seems the way to go it would seem.

    Sad really as I would like to buy locally, although Sydney isn't exactly local to me, just in the same country.

    Mick.

    If the shipping to Australia puzzle is solved, I'd be keen to order some 70mm sleeves - I have all these 70mm strips I have no idea how to store currently... (oh, and I've used the Print File 120 sleeves ever since Klame disappeared from the market - I only wish they had binder holes for four-ring binders...)

    Marc!

    Marc, I'm in the same boat with Klame being out of the game. I looked at the Print File site and they seem to have international hole neg holders, just like the European ones all have.

    Could be a bulk order happening.

    Mick.

    Before I order, can you please explain why your archival negative holders are archival? What material are they made of, and why is that good for my negatives?

    Marc & Mick - agree the local pricing is high. You can buy these film sleeves from B&H and Freestyle for much less, just have to account for the postage which usually necessitates a bulk order. That's why I'd like to know how reasonable the Print File direct postage is for say a couple of packs.

    I've ordered my packs in the past from Silverprint at what seem like good prices. Interesting that a greater number of dealers do not stock the Print File products over here.

    I don't disagree, but I'd like my question in post #26 answered by the OP!

    Besides their being archival, the best thing I love about Print File binder sleeves is that they're easier to get the negative strips into them!
    While visiting St. Louis last fall, I stopped by a shop and found a 100-pack of 35mm binder sleeves made by another company on clearance. I could barely get the negatives to fit and I nearly tossed out the whole pack in frustration! Print File's sleeves are so much better.
