    ...I have a laminate striped print from a German lab on acetate stock bought in 2017. 7X 600' reels. It has held up well but during the first screening, but about 45 seconds of reel 4 just peeled off at the entry guide to my projector before I could stop it. 45 seconds gone like that on a stereo recorded film, a classic at that. No other way to slice it! Magnetic paste is the Audio Futture of Super 8 Sound. I agree with Joerg here. I have several magnetically striped prints masterly applied last year and not one has flaked or peeled off.

      Burton - you may be correct regarding the paste stripes. As collectors, all we want are options. Competition is good for the consumer.

      I am pretty sure that nowhere in North America is magnetic stripe or paste being offered. And as far as I know only Movie Magnetic in Italy offers the pasting solution - with restrictions and requirements for other services many do not want or need.

          That was manufactured in Britain by Carnall who also made "The Equaliser" used to trim film that had been badly split from 16mm.

            I have had that same experience with my print of "The Mark of Zorro", in that, the paste stripe was just starting to unglue itself, and it wasn't just a little piece here and there, it's long sections! I finally had to consider it a mute print, so much of it being mute now! Laminate does not have that quality.
