    7x17 Shooters

    Greetings,

    I have been in contact with Archival Methods regarding storage boxes measuring 8"x18" for both negative and contact print storage.

    See this link http://www.archivalmethods.com/Produ...&Productid=122 if you have an interest.

    Minimum order is 100 boxes @ $28.80 per box plus shipping. Box is black metal edged and measures 1.5"H x 8"W x 18"L and has a drop front feature.

    I'll start by committing to 10 boxes and organizing the logistics of the purchase, let's see if there is enough interest out there.

    tough that you have to order 100 minimum, makes it big money

    why not make your own?

    Nice thought Ray, but where would you get the archival cardboard stock without some sort of similar minimum order? In general, who supplies such material? I have no idea.

    $10.11 or less per box certainly beats $28 per box....

    Does anyone know of a source for archival boxes for storing mounted 7x17 prints? Thanks!

    The Hollinger boxes that John Bowen links to look good and affordable.

    If one wanted to make one's own, I'd look at a bookbinding supplier like http://talasonline.com

    I would be more than satisfied with the company that John suggests, what are your thoughts Alex?

    Steve,

    You are most welcome.....

    In addition to the 7x17 boxes, I have also ordered 8x20 boxes from Hollinger. I do my 7x17 contacts on 8x20 paper.
