I just ordered the Print File page sheets to hold 4 rows of three 6x7 exposures. The sheet requires an out-sized binder, but I already use one of those for 35mm. Thanks for all of your input.

I have been using the plastic sleeve binder pages for 35mm and am not really happy with them. Wrestling the larger 120 strips in and out of the sticky/bindy sleeves does not appeal to me.

Anyone care to share what they do? Thanks...

There are two things i do that help with this a lot:

1. I make sure to separate the two sides of the pocket from each other at least once before inserting the strip of film.

2. On whichever end of the strip of film is going in first, I ever-so slightly trim the corner at a 45% angle. This seems to have helped tremendously, as the film no longer digs into the sides of the slot. It might work even better if I actually rounded the corner, but I'm much too clumsy to try that!

These are excellent suggestions. I used to do this two things with my 35mm film pages and film strips. Thanks for reminding me!

This is a great suggestion. It would be even better if there were a dye cutter designed just for this. I would add a little notch just before the rounded edge to help pull out the film with a small notched tool (that would be part of the dye cutter set).

Anyone ever see something like this? They have loads of these fun little dye cutters for paper craft type projects, so it may not be outside the realms of possibilities.
