Worried About Small Accidents?

Should a spillage occur, you will be relieved to know that in most cases, this should not cause you to have to reprint your film. There may be differences between inks and not all liquids will be so forgiving, but although you are buying a low cost film, you can still expect the resilience that comes from much higher priced products.

The Print Side:
It is not easy to see which side of the film to print on, so we suggest you dampen your finger slightly and touch the corner. The sticky side is the print side.
