    Neg Storage

    What do you use for neg storage ?

    I purchased some Kenro clear neg storage pages, but I dont like them its very hard to get the negs into them and they attract loads of dust, what are are the alternatives ?

    I hate all those dust-attracting plastics too. I'm a big fan of glassine negative sleeves. No static there!

    Kenro also makes paper storage sleeves (if you want to keep buying the same brand).
    Not as easy to see through (even though it is ok if you just need to locate a neg), but it does not generate the amount of static that the plastic sleeves do.
    They are also cheaper.

    I use the Kenro paper sleeves and have done for over ten years. No problems with them at all (oh, except that they can sometimes tear if you're very rough with them).

    I like the polyester fold-lock sleeves from Archival Methods. They also make them in polypropylene - same archival quality as polyester but less clear to see through. I like these things simply because inserting or removing the negatives doesn't involve any sliding action, which minimizes the risk of scratching.

    Well they're kind of milky-white translucent. You certainly won't be contact printing through them though! If you've bought sheets of stamps from the post office before and they gave them to you in an envelope, I believe that's the same stuff. Kinda like wax paper but without so much wax.

    I found the Kenro sheets very tight as well when I last tried some many years ago, but I now use PrintFile archival sheets. They are clear and very easy to insert negatives into. Personally, I use the ones which accommodate strips of 6 images but I think they're also available to slot in strips of 4.

    I bought a few packets of the Kenro clear sheets and find them difficult to load. I now insert a scale rule into the slot and slide it back and forth prior to inserting my 35mm neg and find it easier to load. But I would still prefer an easier loading neg sheet.
