Film Photography Fail!

I purchased what I thought were light-proof black bags online in order to ship 4x5 sheet film for processing.

Surprise, surprise..I checked the black bag description..."These plastic bags are not light-tight by themselves." YIKES! Make sure your bags are light tight before sending exposed film to the processing lab!
