Hi,

if you go to any of the labs, most of the time they will be happy to provide you with cans, cores & labels free of charge...

Hope this helps.

Thank you guys. I just bought some empty film cans from Kodak today. The people at Kodak were extremely helpful.

Also, I'll visit Astro Labs in Chicago this Friday and lets see if they are willing to part with a few empty film cans :)
