    Hi guys, i do have a contact on a seller (small scale, not industry wholesale) but I haven't managed to call him yet..
    I wonder however - I supposed the mylar could be reused many times and someone here mentioned only 2-3 times.. how durable is this stuff?
    @Steve- thank you for your kind offer, I'll contact you if I don't find a reasonable solution locally.

    Any place that carries archival framing and matting supplies will have it. It is quite strong and can be reused many times. There are different thicknesses, the thinnest would be best for what you want to do. I did the same when I was printing non-silver.

    I have been using polyester and LDPE Polyethylene sleeves for 40 years and notice no difference between the two; both for making contact prints and archival properties.

    Why are there no speaker jacks on a stereo camera?

    The thinnest we have is 75 micron (0.003"). I wouldn't use anything thinner. Thicker can be used but it depends on the light source. If a single bulb or the sun is used, then the thickness isn't going to make a lot of difference but if a large light source such as several UV tubes is used, the light can come in at all angles so the thinner, the better to reduce softening of the edges of the image,
