Oh, my word, this is getting terrible with LI!!!
On a different but similar note, who are you guys ordering from now?. I had been using them for years and about to run out of a supply of stuff. If you can post it publicly please let me know or pm if you would prefer. There are so few companies left that carry some of this stuff.
Try PrintFile they have a location in Florida and are APUG supporters. My experiences have been positive. Prompt, courteous and accurate responses.
I just Googled Light Impressions to see how their website looks these days and, when I clicked on the link, I got a blank page saying "Bad Request (Invalid Hostname)" Apparently, their website is down - hopefully, for good!
Right after the Google listing for LightImpressionsDirect are the BBB and APUG thread...
I know of a few sources;
Archival Print and some negative storage bags;
Bags Unlimited, www.bagsunlimited.com
Archival storage boxes, also some print bags (Not to mention Library supplies- their main business)
Brodart Inc, www.shopbrodart.com
Frame Destinations, they advertise here
General archival supplies, boxes, mat board, etc.;
University Products, http://www.universityproducts.com
My wife has been buying stuff from Bags unlimited and Brodart for quite a long time for her bookstore, I recently bought a clamshell storage box from them which looks to be just fine, and was resonable cost.
I've used Frame Destinations along with many others here in APUG land.
I've not purchased from University Products, but they are a well regarded supplier here in the North East (U.S.), located in Holyoke, MA and do mail order via the web, etc.
Thanks, Jeffrey... That's great to know. I have used some of PrintFiles stuff before but always ordered it from other companies.

Not sure what you are looking for, but I use Talas for a lot of archival supplies and adhesives. They sell lots of really cool stuff!

I need to keep a supplier for my dry mounting supplies and adhesives and all that goes into into pressing/mounting.
Sorry, OP, didn't mean to hijack the thread.
Varya- I usually use UMS for mounting supplies:
My experience with them has been very positive.
I'm a happy Talas customer, too.

They have everything you can possibly imagine in terms of presentation and archival storage supplies (except for frames). Request their catalogue and you'll be amazed at the breadth and depth of their product lines. They do a lot of business with museums.
