• Until recent years, archival film storage had been associated, at least in the public mind, with museums, government agencies, libraries, or other institutions concerned with the preservation of photographic records; however, other users of photographic film, such as commercial photographers, printing houses, publishers, and schools, have long been concerned with how best to ensure permanence of their irreplaceable photography.
• A sophisticated generation of amateur photographers who observed how time, humidity and casual storage damaged valuable slides and prints, nowadays, have converted to using archival storage techniques. They, too, appreciate that a picture good enough to keep is good enough to keep forever.
• Exclusive thin backing coupled with high clarity provides excellent resolution when proofing without removing negatives from the preserver. No other manufactured preserver has this feature. Also, continuous seams eliminate the problem of negatives hanging up in the sleeve itself. You can literally load and unload Print File preservers easier and faster.
• The Exclusive Hanging File System is designed specifically for hanging photographic records in standard file drawers or file boxes. Simply slide the hanger into the preserver's I.D. strip, and it's ready for hanging. And you don't need to be a professional photographer to keep your negatives, prints, slides, and transparencies permanently protected. While you might not be able to maintain an optimally cool, dehumidified vault, you can be assured that careful handling and storage of film and print material, using Print File archival preservers, will help keep your film library in top quality condition for years to come.

Still a great product
I have used these protective sleeves for black and white and color negative film for over 40 years. I'm delighted that I was able to obtain more of the same for a large project requiring me to get in order the rest of my 20,000 frames collection so that I could continue scanning them for archival purposes. The older sleeves maintained the condition of the film without sticking to the sleeves or causing problems with the emulsion and the newer ones were identical to the older ones. Thanks Ador...View full Review

I have been using Printfile products for years and have never had any problems with the product such as tearing or discoloring.
The pages are easy to store in a 3 ring binder while keeping negatives accessible and protected from scratches and dust. By loading the top six pockets, the spacing and clarity of the pages works well for making contact print proof sheets on 8x10 paper.
These pages are a great way to organize your negatives. Print file pages for negatives and slides are the standard because they work - dependably.
I had boxes of negatives. They needed to be organized. These worked great for me. I was able to do a "rough" scan with the negatives in the sleeves and print it for a contact sheet of sorts. Now I can pick the negatives that I want to scan for electronic files. I do agree with the poster that mentioned they were difficult to place in the binder. Because they are so thin they do not have much body and must be placed into the binder a few at a time. It was a little time consuming but well worth the effort.
As advertised. They do the job well. The bulk packaging is good to easily organize large groups of negatives
I have used these for 100s of negatives of sizes from 35mm to 4x5
Excellent product to file away all those negatives stored in boxes through the years. Weel-made in the USA.
I used the pages to archive and display bride's negatives. Only drawback, I used 36 roll film but pages only hold 35. Had to be very creative to preserve one negative for bride.
Great product for archiving old negatives
Just what we wanted and they are unusally hard to find. This layout works really well for a 36 exp. roll of negatives.
