    www.archivalmethods.com or www.printfile.com -- both are archival storage companies. Other than that....well I haven't thought of anything yet.

    Hard to find but my favorite are just regular white dress gloves. The only people I see wearing them anymore ( used to be the norm for church when I was a little girl) is military - honor guards etc. Maybe some of the ex- military types can tell us where to get them.

    oooh! I remembered another place.

    www.uline.com (http://www.uline.com/Browse_Listing_968.asp)

    apparently B&H also has them: (http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/cont...u=19993&is=REG)

    EDIT: searched google & amazon.com for "white cotton gloves" -- found white cotton parade glove. More like what Holly's talking about: (http://www.amazon.com/White-Cotton-P.../dp/B000BMS22U)

    Default I saw ...

    I have seen some people on print committee using gloves they got from a formal wear shop. They were a much better material than the normal cotton ones.

    Miller's sells white cotton gloves for a very reasonable price.

    So I have another question about print gloves ... I see the judges and handlers sometimes wipe the prints down with their gloves as the high glossy finishes are so prone to finger prints etc.

    Are any of the print glove suggestions made on this thread better than others given you may use them to wipe off a finger print?

    I used to wear the photo gloves when I handled negatives in the darkroom...sometimes. I was always taking them off to put the paper in the developer. I always preferred to get my hands into the developer, especially with large prints. You just can't get a large print into developer smoothly enough with tongs.

    I get military items like that (I've been working with a youth group that does parades and such) from this place: http://www.paradestore.com/detail.aspx?ID=146

    Their budget gloves are $1.50 per pair. The photo gloves, are significantly cheaper, but the parade gloves are washable. I'd also trust the parade gloves for any fingerprint-wiping duty more than I'd trust the photo gloves.
