    For the negs, I've been getting by with using the empty film boxes (2 makes 3). For prints, though, haven't yet come up with good solution. I normally print on 10X20 watercolor paper with an alt process.

    At one time Hollinger made a 17.5 inch L x 6 inch wide x 7.5 inch high box for 7x17 film. I have one full. They claim they switched to the 2 inch high version or flat storage because of customer demand. I much prefer storing the negatives on edge rather than flat. When full the 7.5 inch height size does get a little heavy. My guess is that customers using larger size film were the source of complaint. Maybe if enough 7x17 shooters asked they would go back. I don't know if we are a significant voice. I would doubt it.

    I have been told that the film box method of storage is not archival. At age 68 I am not sure that is a problem for me. It may matter more to people who have made plans for their negatives after the artist is gone.

    If we find a source for boxes that let us store the film on edge I am interested. The number of boxes will depend on how many sheets of film and interleaved archival paper they hold.

    I like the Hollinger boxes for negatives. I think there is too much difference in the size of paper upon which people print and boards upon which they mount to consider a standard size box. I do not permanently mount prnts which makes it much easier to store them in flat files and/or boxes.
