Once my 35 mm film is developed an placed in a protective sleeve that holds
an entire roll & is punched for a 3 ring binder, it is contact printed. I then
scan the contact sheet. This isn't as direct as what you are looking for,
but works nicely. I store all my negatives by classification of work and date
in three ring binders with the negatives and contact sheets right together.
