A 100 pack of sleeves for medium format is $98.63 at Vanbar. They're $22.99 at Freestyle and they're a) Printfile and b) I can get them in three strips of four. Neither of those things are the case with the Vanbar ones. I think B&H has them a little cheaper, but the shipping wound up being more and they didn't stock the paper I wanted, so Freestyle it is
As for helping me out with costs, right now I can keep my order under $150 by a whopping 45c! That means I can use FIMS which is about $40 cheaper for shipping. Keeping it under that limit, however, meant ordering less than I really want to. I'd rather try and get as much as I can afford at one time so I don't have to do this again for a while! Of course, an endless supply of affordable paper would be brilliant, but it's not going to happen.
That being said, if no one needs anything, I'll just stick to my slightly slimmed down order. I just thought they're might be others about who might want to try and get some materials with a somewhat defrayed shipping cost
Added: I just saw the V-Tec 120 Sleeves (4 strips of 3 frames) $9.90 for a 25pk. So, just under forty dollars for 100. Not bad at all... just not quite the format I'm after this time around.
