Emulsion side of negatives


I recently purchased plastic sheets to hold my negatives. They say put negatives in emulsion side down. Can you please tell me which is the emulsion side.

  Emulsion side is dull, and film id printing (eg. "Kodak 100 TMX") is reversed. The base side is shiny and the film id printing is read correctly.
