It looks exactly like the one we used to use at work. It's from a Sony printer if it's like ours.

I personally would throw it away. Not because I dislike recycling, but because these should never leave the photo printing shop. If you hold it up to the light you can actually see the image that was printed. Where the ink was removed for the image is left white, so in effect you have the image in reverse.

You'll notice that they are grouped. Each neighbouring colour will show the same image. The next set is the next print.

My friends got one of these and scanned each colour from the same photo. We put them together in photoshop and got a pretty good image of the original (it was our photo, btw).

Unless you're going to totally obliterate the ability to see the images in however you craft with it it's probably better if you destroy the roll. I wouldn't like my photo shop giving away copies of my prints.

Sorry to rain on your parade.

Oh fantastic. If it wasn't new it would be easy to tell.

Although a few each end often end up unused.

The problem with this stuff is it does rub off. Or, it could be a benefit. Could you use a stylus of some type and draw onto the cellophane so the ink comes off on another piece of paper. That could make a really cool effect.
