    I print almost exclusively in Palladium. If I want my print to say Ilford, I'll take a picture of the box the film came in. I would have to look for another film if they added edge markings.

    No thanks. I prefer no text on the edges. Sometimes the type does intrude. Code notches aren't hard to deal with and you don't need to memorize them, the info is readily available. Take notes, paper is cheap.

    If you were a printer it would bug you...


    On a similar note... I wonder why makers of painters canvas don't print their name on the front edge...? It'd be good advertising wouldn't it?

    They should put it on the back though, which is essentially what the edge is for film, where you don't print, because you don't expose that area...

    Then again I like my grafmatics to still contain the number thing.

    I don't think this would work, especially for snobs like me who still stretch their own canvases.

    Here's a thought, Stone: If you buy some Ilford printing paper you get stickers with it. You can put those stickers on your negatives.

    How is the front of a photographic print with advertising on it (from the negative) the same as the back of a canvas with advertising on it...?

    notch codes arent that hard to figure out if need be .. im glad they dont have text on the film .. hate that ..
    almost as much as the number wheel on my graphmatic ,, thats why the fiirst thing when i got one was unscew the holder and remove the wheel.
    the notch codes are bad enough a number wheel in the negative is even worse

    No thanks, and Stone you need to try printing.

    I usually figure out the film code on used holders containing film, which happens all the time!

    Well as I said it's more about helping ilford and making a "cool" image for posting online then for identification, and I'm getting better at remembering the codes. But to a novice it's a deterrent, and forget that old mentality of "if you can't make it, don't bother" with that attitude not enough new blood will make it to film.
