    Not sure if it would be helpful because I am not 100% sure that I understand what you need to do but Scotch/3M makes a great removable tape....http://www.scotchbrand.com/wps/porta...gl28ZWQF5K1Cbl

    3M Scotch strips, either in clear or invisible form. The stuff is pricey and generally fiddly to use without the dispenser. The foregoing posts mentioning mylar splicing tape or bonding would be the other good choices. You may need to experiment and not be hopeful of getting perfect results with the first option and keep trying.

    I am simply butting 4 individual 4x5 negatives against one another to create a single 8x10 negative. To keep it straight in the negative carrier I would like to tape them together so they don't shift when I put the top glass on them.

    Why are you using four sheets of 4x5 to make an 8x10? Just shoot an 8x10 and your problem will be solved.

    It would if I was trying to make a single image across the entire negative, but I am making a single quadtych image of the same scene in different lighting as time passes through the day. Individual 4x5 images were shot, but I plan on making a single print from all four at once.

    Is there any good reason to not output this digitally?

    Output it digitally? Well, besides the fact that the discussion of that would need to be taken elsewhere since this is APUG, you couldn't get an archival silver gelatin or alternative process print that way. Unless you were to scan and output a digital negative, that is. But then you'd lose some information that is available in the original sheet films, and it would be way harder than just taping together and contact printing the quadtych.

    Yes, you're right - if all the op is aiming at is an archival b/w print. However, if the analogue process is essential to the appreciation of the work then why not embrace the analogue in all of its glorious imperfection, tape-marks and all?

    Of course I could, but then I wouldn't be in my darkroom, I would be at my computer. I want to be in my darkroom. And this is C-41 film for RA-4 printing.

    Why not print the 4 negatives, one at a time, on the same paper?

    Make 4 masks with a black cardboard with the same size as the paper,
    and use one mask for each negative.
