How many rolls are in a Pro-Pack? Back in 2001 or so, I ordered quite a few rolls (for me) of Velvia from B&H. They came in the little green boxes and wrapped in cellophane. I can't remember how many rolls I bought, it seems that it was 20 if I recall. Sadly, when I went digital in 2004, I tossed probably 7-10 rolls thinking that I would never use it again.
Not sure about Fuji, but Kodak Portra is sold in 5 and 20 roll pro-packs.
Do you actually need the "little paper" in this electronic day and age when obtaining more detailed information from the Fuji (or any manufacturer's) website re data sheets for Velvia 50, 100, 100F et al is less wasteful?

"It is horrifying that we have to fight our own government

No, not really. I just wondered what happened to it. I found the data sheet for my film on Fuji's website.
If you are buying it with no individual box, it just means that it has been broken out of a "pro pack". As for the piece of paper...I have not seen one of those for a while from any manufacturer. I get them in older film that has been expired for years.
"Truth and love are my law and worship. Form and conscience are my manifestation and guide. Nature and peace are my shelter and companions. Order is my attitude. Beauty and perfection are my attack."
Fuji sell 35mm Velvia in single rolls boxed but many dealers don't order them, my local pro dealer only sells the 5 roll packs and won't split them, but I console myself that if I shoot more than one roll of a subject all the film is from the same emultion batch.
(Actually I think the "Brick" is 10 rolls, not 20)
I know Kodak sells TMY in 10 roll bricks (10 yellow boxes in plastic wrap packed 2x5) because I've purchased TMY this way before.
Lately I've noticed that digitaltruth.com is offering TMY in what they call a "20 Roll Value Multi-Pack". Does anyone know if this is a Kodak packaging (perhaps 2-bricks)? How is it packaged, i.e. individual boxes or a single box with 20 film cans?
I too like individual boxes as this is the only sure fire way of keeping the expiration dates together with the film without having to jump through hoops.
