    film holder label tape

    Does anyone know of a suitable replacement 'tape' for the label strip on film holders? I recently got some that someone for whatever reason has marked with permanent ink, and quite obnoxiously and illegibly at that. Any suggestions welcome and appreciated.

    I use white first aid tape, you can get in a couple of different widths, write on it with pen or pencil and leaves no residue, I used to use it when I was into archery to mark my sight settings, works good for this type of stuff.

    Fill the rest in with black ink and then use those white pencils made for marking fabrics? You could start a fad

    That's a great idea Dave, many thanks.
    Murray, I was actually thinking about doing that, but thought I might mistake the black ink for a reversed slide and get confused!

    Good idea Colin. In photography, as in life, it's good to follow the KISS principle - Keep It Simple Stupid

    I use what is known as "artist's tape." It's a smooth white tape available from Dick Blick and many other places. It lays flat, has good staying power, pulls off clean when I want to remove it and takes pencil markings and erasures as well as the original strip. I get the 1/2" variety and use it for many, many things around the studio. It will peel off of good paper without lifting the fiber.

    I'll second the artist's tape. Available for much less at expendables shops.

    I use 1/2 paper tape obtained from a grip electric company expendable supply. It is commonly used in the camera dept on motion picture sets. About $2 a roll. Probably cheaper than that if you found out where they get it. I don't know if it is the afore mentioned artist tape.

    The cool thing about it is that it comes in different colors, so I use different colors of tape for various film stocks. That way I can tell at a glance what a holder has loaded in it.
