    Nah, robbery is when Adorama wants $138 to ship me a $13 packet of 25 sleeves

    But you can see, now, why we have a bit of a whinge about prices of things over here, yes?

    Michaels has archival packs of 25 120 sleeves made by Albox Australia for $26 (among other sizes they have).
    I wouldn't be too pedantic about PrintFile; I have experienced their sleeves coming apart at the welds over time — it's a name I avoid, unfortunately.
    So long as the manufacturers has passed the PAT for archival-quality sleeves you can buy whatever is available. But not Chinese-made stuff.

    If I can find my old HAMA film-leader retriever it's yours! Silly bloody thing. Try a piece of masking tape attached to the tip of a knife to retrieve leader. It's what I have used, albeit not often (1N leaves leader out, as all obedient cameras should!)

    So $96 for 100? Again, not going to happen. I'm not overly hung up on PrintFile, it's just that, thus far, they're the only company I've found which sell them to store three strips of four. Apparently I'm a rarity in cutting my 120 this way; it just seemed logical to me at the time If I didn't have a backlog of around forty rolls of film already cut like this which need storing properly, I'd change what I'm doing but, until they're stored 3 strips of 4 it is.

    The couple of times I've needed to fish out the leader, I've just used another strip of 35mm film. Feed it in and then quickly pull it back out. Works like a charm.
    However, if Shane would like a whizz bang bit of official gadgetry to make life easier for him, I'm happy to get it for him as an early Christmas present

    BTW guys when it comes to sleeves, I highly recommend polyester fold-flap sleeves combined with Printfile Ultima album pages. These are by far the best archival material and they seriously avoid scratches to your film because there is no sliding of film against sleeve material.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    That's very timely Molli! I'm just using my last sleeve... now! I could go up to 4 of these http://www.freestylephoto.biz/121410...-4-strips-of-3 if that works with your order and freight and everything?

    Hi Marc, that's perfectly fine! Are you sure you're not needing anything else? Right now, your order comes in well under the FIMS limit and is only $51 for shipping

    By the way, does anyone know what happens if you order something that's out of stock? The paper I wanted has run out and now isn't due until the end of November. If I go ahead and order it, will I just get the first part of my order straight away and they'll send along the other stuff when it comes in? Or will I wind up paying for two separate lots of shipping?
