    Printfile negative sleeves (local Australian dealer?)

    Morning fellow Australians
    Does anybody know of anywhere here that stocks the Printfile neg sleeves in the so-called "international multi-hole version"? The sleeves stocked by B&H and other US dealers are punched to fit only a 3-ring binder, whereas the multi-hole version will fit the 4-ring binders which I use. I like Printfile stuff and bought my last lot in London when I was over there a couple of years ago.
    I have enquired from Printfile about them shipping some sleeves to me direct but their postage rates are astronomical (even after I contacted them by email) and don't even seem to come down much with increasing volume...
    Many thanks if anyone knows of a local supplier.

    I think that Foto Riesel in Kent St, Sydney are the local distributor. They certainly sell them in their shop. I haven't checked the holes as I store my neg sleeves loose in boxes without the rings.

    I bought some multi-hole-format ones online from Vanbar recently. But to do mail orders from them you really need to be stocking up on a fair bit of stuff to make the freight economical.

    Ian, I have been buying from B&H and punching the 4 holes myself. Is this an option?

    Thanks for the responses guys. I spoke to Foto Riesel a few days ago and they didn't stock the sleeves I want. Vanbar don't have Printfile stuff listed in their online shop, but maybe worth a call...

    Andy, yes I have been punching holes in another lot of sleeves I bought from B&H. So it is certainly an option. I was just hoping that someone around here might stock the pre-punched ones, as it would be one small job that I would no longer have to worry about. Given that the multi-punched sleeves are actually manufactured by Printfile, and are presumably useful to quite a few people, it surprises me that they are not more widely available... Oh well. Might just have to keep punching my own!

    There are 4 hole ones on the Silverprint site. Might be an option if you don't mind importing from the UK. No idea how comparable the prices are though.

    Maybe I'm missing something, but why not use Albox sleeves instead?

    Thanks Roger. Silverprint's sleeves are a bit pricey, and they also have a minimum international order amount of 100 quid. But that was where I got my last lot of multi-punched sleeves when I was last in the old country...

    I am very happy with Printfile sleeves, and would rather keep using them.

    Sounds reasonable to me!
