    They can probably repring your negs, as they were in the vanguard offering
    Eastmancolor emulsions. They still offer slides, prints & negs from color
    print film, and they claim to have a much improved slide stock, but I'm
    sticking with prints. Properly stored, prints will outlast that slide stock
    that is used to produce slides from negs, anyday.

    Signature Labs also did 5247, but I don't know if they're still around. I
    haven't seen 5247 offered by any lab in at least 10 years--for all I know,
    Eastman has replaced it with a newer emulsion. I think the Eastmancolor fad
    has reached an end. Great idea, terrible archival qualities, though.
