Dear Bryce,

The only times I have gotten nice straight scratches along the length of the film, the culprit has been grit in the camera. Of course, if you blow your camera out each time then this probably isn't the cause. I used to get scratches that weren't straight back when I squeegeed the film before drying (many others do this without problem though).

As for printing, I use Edwal No-Scratch and I clean it off with PEC-12 and PEC pads.
