    Mike, thanks a lot for the idea!

    After seeing your system with film decal tabs, I decided to make something like that.
    However, making copies using ortho/lith film was not very practical or easily available, so I opted for another system: I got a heavier transparency sheet (thicker than usual), some "Letraset" transfer lettering templates and followed the film decal tab idea. What I did was draw a grid on the transparency and just transfer the numbers from the transfer lettering "thingy"(TM)

    Everything was done in about an hour - and I marked two holders. The tabs are glued to the holders and secured with clear sticky tape.

    Another (a bit cleaner) idea, which I might try later, is to use transparencies intended for laser printing - draw the tabs in a drawing program and just print those on the transparency, cut them up and use those... The laser transparencies I found are a bit thinner than the one I used here, though...

    It sure is easier and cleaner than filing/carving the notches in holders, particularly if you have older wooden holders (think sawdust!)...

    Anyway, the photos are attached.

    Sorry, I just use QuickLoads - each has a unique number.

    I don't use cut film holders either, I mostly use Grafmatics which also number the sheets for you.

    Mike & Denis,

    those tabs are a good idea but they screw up quite an area on the negative.

    Chris at Quality Camera in Atlanta told me to get a set of files designed to sharpen the teeth of chainsaws.

    I believe he said they come in a set of 3: round, "V" and square, or something like that.

    Next time I go into a hardware store I'll see what's available and report back.

    The tab things that Mike shows work very well. I never purchased them how ever, they are very easy to make with litho film or transparancy stuff for ink jet printers.
