    some of the kodak papers used to have their name printed on the back

    buy it on the used market ....
    i usually use ilford rc if i am using rc, and luckily it doesn't have their name on
    the reverse side

    Best is to position the start by the piece of tape... but don't tape it yet. Roll the film up - then tape it last. Otherwise you will get a kink or bubble.

    I wouldn't stick it in a hassleblad film back - or anything that uses thickness sensing to give auto film spacing, but in rollfilm cameras with a red window it works OK.

    I tested out Harman's direct positive paper this way.
    i roll my own 122 spools of paper .. and stick them in a post card camera
    ( 3a format graflex slr ) ... i cut 8x10 sheets of rc paper in half
    and tape them end to end. i took a piece of 35mm film and taped it to the end
    as a leader and rolled the paper onto the spool. i usually keep it rolled tight for a few
    days before putting it in my the camera ... it works pretty well !
    box cameras and coffee developers are great for paper negatives

    have fun

    the groups don't get a lot of airplay because their feeds aren't in the main forum
    so it is great to see active questions about similar-stuff in the main forum !
    AND lots of people using great low-tech great image making tools
