    I am still looking for a way to get about 25 feet of film (12 inches wide). The only place I can find to get it from is now also out of the 100ft, and only has 250ft for about $1080. I am wondering if 2, 3, or 4 others would like to go in on it with me. You can reach me by responding here or at

    It sounds like you're looking to purchase a specific type of film in a bulk quantity, but the available options are larger than what you need. To address this, you're considering splitting the cost and quantity with 2, 3, or 4 other people.

    Here are some steps you might consider:

    1. **Determine the Need:**
       Clearly outline your needs for the 25 feet of film. Ensure that all potential collaborators have a similar use for the film.

    2. **Find Collaborators:**
       Reach out to friends, colleagues, or people within your network who might have a similar need for the film. You can discuss the idea with them and gauge their interest in joining the purchase.

    3. **Cost Sharing:**
       Calculate the cost per person based on the total price of the 250 feet of film. Make sure everyone is comfortable with their share and understands the logistics of sharing the film.

    4. **Logistics:**
       Work out how the film will be divided and distributed among the collaborators. Make sure everyone is clear on how the logistics will be handled, including payment, shipping, and any other relevant details.

    5. **Communication:**
       Keep open communication with your collaborators. Discuss preferences, deadlines, and any other relevant details to ensure a smooth collaboration.

    6. **Commitment:**
       Ensure that all collaborators are committed to the purchase and understand their responsibilities. Having a clear agreement in writing can be helpful.

    7. **Alternative Sources:**
       Keep looking for alternative sources or suppliers who might offer the film in the desired quantity. You might find a better deal or more suitable options.

    By collaborating with others, you can potentially save money and avoid unnecessary waste. Just make sure to communicate effectively and plan everything in detail to ensure a successful joint purchase.
