    No, I go through enough film that I have a bunch of empties. Do you want me to send you a couple 8x10's, Vinny?

    The link is to some film boxes from Light Impressions -- don't know if they are 3 piece boxes, but they look like they'll keep out the light -- at ten bucks for an 8x10 box!

    I think these are for storing processed film.

    Mike Walker (www.walkercameras.com) used to sell ABS versions of film boxes. I *think* there was an 8x10 version. The 4x5 boxes I have are smaller than a cardboard film box, about the same weight, and hold at least thirty sheets (although Mike recommended twenty).

    They're not on his website since it was revamped a while back, but it might be worth contacting him to see if he does a run from time to time.

    I am also unsure -- they mention that they are thicker than the boxes supplied by film manufactorers, and they went to the trouble of making them black inside, so I am not really sure.

    Have you seen this...

    I have never purchased these but was considering it. I have delt with this company before with good results. The name of the Company is Bromwell Marketing and their website is http://www.bromwellmarketing.com/. Go to their accessory link and they advertise light tight film storage boxes. I'll ask Ted (the owner) about them next time I talk to him.

    I toured a few photo labs in my city looking for empty 4x5 boxes when I first got started. It really is a hassle when you're on your first box or two of film. I was putting exposed velvia sheets in my unexposed delta box, and vice versa (easy to sort out with the notches). Extra film holders helped a lot, because you can basically empty a box with one load if you've got a 10 box of film and at least 5 holders. This isn't so practical with ULF film obviously.

    Now I've got a handful of empty boxes around and it's no problem. You just have to shoot and make do with weird solutions until you've gone through a box or two, or just shoot and process immediately out of the holders.

    I don't think it would make much sense for companies to sell empty boxes for the 4x5, 5x7 and 8x10 sizes, but for ULF maybe.

    In my line of work I have had custom boxes made for special marketing promotions and mailers. Any box company (I worked with 2 in Salt Lake City) will make a triple lid construction and offer you several paper choices. All you gotta do is pay for a thousand or so

    It's probably not a bad idea but too speculative for me to take on at the moment.
