Does anybody sell the generic white cardboard boxes (like Derann used) that are used for 200,400, and 600ft reels?

I believe the seller can provide other sizes as well.

The guy you are after Paul is called John Vidler and is a member of this forum. I have dealt with and purchased some 1200ft boxes from him and he is an excellent guy to deal with and I would thoroughly recommend his products and service to anyone.

Hi, thanks for your kind words about my range of boxes, it's nice to hear that you like them. Just to let you know that I am having a stocktake and reorganisation of my items for the next week and my ebay listings and webshop are suspended at the moment.

Everything will be available again on the 23rd of November when I will also have an 800ft size Super 8 / 8mm reel box and a small size for 50ft lab reels.

I am also looking still at 16mm reel storage boxes and I hope to have some more information on these in the new year.

I would like to thank everyone who has supported this project by buying these boxes and I aim to continue providing different sizes to suit all collectors of film.

Keep collecting!

Hi. Hoping to resurrect this thread. Does anyone have a source for the white boxes that hold the 600ft reels that Derann use to use? I see a seller in the UK and they look good but the shipping is prohibitive. My boxes need to get replaced!

Hi Rik, There are one or two places I could recommend here in the UK but as you say for cardboard boxes the shipping becomes prohibitive on items of their size and minimal value.

Is there nowhere at all in the US that still does these?

Steve Osbourne sells high quality film boxes in the USA. I got some 200ft and 800ft boxes from him and they are very good, much more robust than the flimsy Derann boxes, and reasonably priced. Not sure if he sells 600ft boxes.

Thanks Paul. I'll give Steve a ring.
