Choose between blue, grey (taupe?) or a mixture of both.

When I bought these rolls, I thought they were all black. Today I opened one of the boxes, so I could fill an order for the black microfilm and found some blue and grey rolls. YippeeAiAye.

If you want a mixture of black. blue and grey, go to my listing for black microfilm:

I love, love, love this stuff! When I found these gems, it was the first time I had ever seen microfiche in a film roll format. It's usually in small rectangles ( These are images of newspapers, such as The Globe and Mail and The New York Times.

You can use these everywhere! Because of their see-through nature I really like adding them to altered books and visual journals. Cut a rectangle through two pages, then place the microfiche between them so it's showing through the holes. Now, glue the two pages together. Makes a little window. Very cool.

Wonderful to use, as well, on Artist Trading Cards and in mixed media pieces. Or, how about cutting slits in an altered book page, then weaving a strip through them? Great as borders, too. Soooooo many uses.

I've shown you the grey microfilm layered over some Israeli bus tickets ( and vintage receipts ( and the blue over a stock certificate image ( as well as a printout of the RubyDog logo.
