Hi I am going to ask CHC if they can do a run of 800 feet white card storage boxes for 16mm films, they need a hundred to go possibly apparently but not asked yet re these.
I need about 25.
I might also ask about 200 feet ones.
Would anyone else be interested ?
Another possibility is pizza boxes if needs must but does anyone know if that would be OK for the films ?
Or even betetr know of anyone who might already do the boxes possibly.

800' reels are not all identical in diameter, but I expect you would go for the Tuscan size. I might be interested in having a few, but only if they opted for a thicker type of card, because I think the sort of thickness seen on 8mm boxes isn't really sturdy enough for larger 16mm spools.
I don't suppose many 16mm collectors have anywhere near as many films on 100' or 200' reels as you (or I) do, so I doubt whether an order would be viable, although I'd certainly welcome some new 100' boxes to replace some very tatty Scopitone boxes.
