    Clearfile negative pages in UK

    I've been buying my Clearfile neg pages off 7dayshop for years, but for whatever reason they've stopped selling them, apart from a few 35mm mounted slide pages.

    Does anyone know where else I can get them from in the UK. I've found a few places online, but they want to charge me £8 plus in postage just for one or two packs.

    Failing that, any other suggestions for clear 35mm & 6x7 neg storage pages?

    Ah, so I see. Double the price of Clear file pages though.

    The 'Printfile' products are very effective.

    Thanks - I may give it a try then. Trouble is, they only do 35mm in packs of 100 - I can't see me ever shooting that much 35mm!

    As far as I am aware, Clearfile are no longer in business.

    There is Kenro, who do offer clear neg sleeves very much the same as clearfile. We have just opened our account with Kenro and will be stocking these shortly, packs of 25 or 100, as well as the semi clear ones.

    Matt,

    The Kenro sheets work well but lack the ability to see negative detail before pulling a strip of film. However, with the paper Kenro sleeves there is probably less likely hood of damage by unwelcome grit or dust.

    I have a pack of Kenro translucent paper pages (KNF 15, 100 pages, 7 strips of 6 frames for 135) and the leaflet (catalog) in it mentions "clear print-through acetate pages" (KNF 17). The equivalent for 120 is KNF 16.

    Are Clearfile out of business?

    I know it's not a very good indicator, but their website still seems to be up and 'fresh'. In addition, their products are still being supplied by Firstcall Photographic and another UK distributor - albeit with the high delivery charge mentioned by the O.P.

    I've used Clearfile for a number of years and so would be grateful to learn whether they definitely are out of business.
