Film Storage Kits

  • Application

    Designed for for 35mm, 120 and 4 x 5 negatives. We offer six kits: three for 35 mm (6-frame and 4-frame) negative or transparency strips, two for 120 film negatives, and one for 4 x 5" negatives or transparencies.

    These kits provide you with a three-step process / three levels of organization and preservation:
    1) your film is placed in sleeves for protection
    2) the sleeves are placed in the folders or envelopes for sorting and cataloging
    3) the envelopes are stored in the Tan ArchivalGrade™ box.

    Most commercial film processing labs return color negatives in strips of four frames or images, and our Four-Up Negative File Kit provides the perfect solution for the long-term archival storage for these 4-frame 35 mm negatives. (Please Note: the 35 mm Sleeves included in this kit may need to be trimmed to fit your negatives.)

  • Features

    The difference between the available kits listed involves the particular sleeves you choose.
    Polypropylene Sleeves are both safe and economical, however they lack the optical clarity of the Polyester Sleeves. Our Polyester Sleeves (replacing the popular “Mylar” Sleeves) are crystal clear and more rigid, making viewing and handling your films much easier while providing a high level of protection. As with many products, they are more costly. If your files are accessed often, choose the Polyester Sleeves. If you are using our Film Storage Kits for long term storage, the Polypropylene Sleeves are a perfectly good fit.

    Please keep in mind that each sleeve is designed to hold one strip of negatives, providing the best protection over time and making locating the negative you are looking for easy and efficient.
    Each file folder will hold a full roll of six strips.
    Each box holds up to 50 Negative File Folders. Additional sleeves at Side Lock Film Sleeves can be purchased if needed.
