    Four to a sleeve for 6x6 and five to a sleeve for 6x4.5 has been my
    practice. Now I've 6x7 negs. Should I use two or five neg sleeves
    or? Also, glassine may not be best, at least for viewing.
    Looking for suggestions. Dan

    Dan,

    I use the archival, clear plastic pages designed for storage in loose-leaf
    notebooks. There are two types: 3 vertical columns that each holds 4 frames
    per 6x6 roll or 4 horizontal rows that each holds 3 frames. I prefer the
    latter.

    For my 6x9 sheet film negs I use the same sheets, but I place 2 negatives
    in each horizontal row.

    This works for me,

    Rich

    I think I'll go two to a sleeve. I may even resurrect the accordion fold.
    Nowdays that would be with archival paper. Dan

    Print File makes a page that holds nine 6x7 negs in individual pockets
    orYou don't always have to throw away the 10th negative. You can discard the
    1st, 4th, 7th, or 10th.
