   Lots of snipping...
    I have a couple of questions. 
1, I generally keep negatives in so called archival envelopes or sleeves, is there a problem with these when used for acetate film due to the surfaces of the film being pretty much sealed even though the ends are open?

2, By risk of digitizing for archival purposes do you mean that the archival storage of the original material may be ignored or is there a specific risk to scanning?

3, Are there storage materials you would specifically warn against?

   I always read everything you post>
