    Does anyone know where to buy some storage sleeves for 8x10 inch size negatives in the UK?

    My 8x10 negs have always fit perfectly into clear polypropylene A4 ringbinder sheats.

    Keith,

    I recently purchased 'printfile' branded 10x8 negative sleeves, from the same series as my 120 and 135 sleeves.

    Available at www.silverprint.co.uk

    Keith,

    Are you looking for just sleeves for 8x10 negatives or sleeves to fit into a 3-ring binder? I have a 100 pack of sleeves that I purchased by accident a few weeks ago that I'm not going to use. They are just sleeves. I can send them to you. Let me know

    I also use clear A4 ring binder sheets. They remain easy to see, and most importantly easy to remove and reinsert, which isn't always the case with specialist negative sleeves.

    "archival?"

    So people can have your perfectly archived film after you are dead?

    I used to work for a museum exhibit prep company. Practically none of the film I personally handled (about 70,000 total, almost all ranging from the oughts through the thirties, and also the original color transparencies of Ernst Haas) were in anything better than paper mailing envelopes or cardboard boxes when we first got them, and they always were printable and over all in good condition archivally speaking, although there was often physical damage. Prints dry mounted half a century or longer ago, on board that is nowhere near "archival" by today's standards (often they seem just a small step above cardboard) look perfect.

    My point is simply that preventing physical damage will be the single most important factor in making your negs usable well into the future. Any sort of new plastic sleeve, whether "archival" or not, will be far better than many of the ways *truly* classic film has been stored. If you find something that is just perfect, go for it without obsessing over what is archival and what is not. In 50 years, when we are all dead, people will be wondering why on Earth we were so stupid to be putting our negs into such materials, given the new archival technology available to them. However, I'm sure our negs will be fine, on the less than one percent chance that anyone will even care to do anything with them.

    The Print-File 8x10 negative storage sleeves should be OK for my requirements.
    Thanks to everyone who replied.
