6x7 sleeves for chromes

  1. I just got back into medium format and purchased a new Pentax 6x7. My third one. Sold the other two years ago.

    In any case I can't remember where I used to find the sleeves for this size chrome. My old ones even have room for a label. They are black matts. I could sure use the phone number and/or address for some suppliers.

    Thanks,

  2. I'm not quite sure what you mean by sleeve. If you mean the plastic
    archival storage sheets, then check out Print File. They have many
    different designs for all formats. The most useful for 6x7 are their
    120-3HB style, which holds 3 three-frame strips (for negatives), and
    their 120-9HB style, which holds 9 individual 6x7 frames (for
    transparencies). I don't have a phone number, but their address is

    And, of course, on the web at http://www.printfile.com.

    If you mean individual slide mounts, then I would like to get some
    myself! ;-) I have a boatload of the old metal-and-glass mounts
    (6x6), but I don't like using them (anyone want to buy a bunch??).

  3. I use 4x5 sleeves for each frame. They are a little cumbersome to
    handle with cotton gloves, but I like being able to sort and study
    them on a light box without touching the film surface. I use a print
    storage box to arrange them by topic. The sleeves have room to
    annotate each transparency without obscuring the image. I didn't
    like the sleeves for 3 frames of 120, because unrelated images would
    have to be stored together making retrieval more difficult.
    I hope this help.
     
  4. Medium format slide mounts including 6 x 7 are available from the Wide Screen Centre in London, England. See their web page:

    The following company makes mounts/sleeves for all transparency sizes
    (from 35mm - 8x10ins) in black card with plenty of room for captions.
    The medium format size apertures of 6x4.5, 6x6, 6x7 and 6x9 are in mounts which fold to 5x4ins.
    Price is 13.45 UK pounds per pack of 100 mounts. 5x4 sleeves, front clear, back frosted are 8.45 uk pounds per pack of 100.

  6. The Stock Solution phone# 800-777-2076 ext 59 sells many formats
    of mounts including 6x7. Its a self sealing cardboard mount, also has
    file pages to fit the mounts. I dont mount unless using for submission, otherwise file using print file pages - my lab frequently does this for me
    (returns already stuffed in).
