Looking for color filters

I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this question.

I used to work for a color lab a few years ago as a color retoucher. We had these filter packs (red, green and blue) that we could hold over a print to see which direction to push an image to make color adjustments. I think they were made by Kodak.

I'm trying to get my hands on a pack but I'm having the hardest time. When I google it, I either get Photoshop filters or filters for cameras.

Anyone know where I can get a set of these filters?

Emarts, I am not at all sure, but if you are using the current version of photoshop, you can use Image->Adjustments->Photofilter which has a number of presets, plus your own colours you can select from the picker, else, you can look at variations under image adjustments->variations which gives all kinds of colour shifts

Thanks, for the quick reply, but that's not exactly what I'm asking for. I knew I'd have a hard time communicating this. Sorry.

What I need is a filter pack that has cards in it. Each card has three gel filters on it. One card for magenta, one for red, one for green, one for cyan, etc... The three gels are differentiated by intensity (I'm not sure if that's the right term) from low to medium to high.

Now you can take these cards and place them on top of a print and see how the color cast would change. For instance, if you had an image that was heavy in the blue cast, you'd place a yellow filter on it to see how much of a change is required to move the image toward yellow to remove the cast. Obviously you can do this on a digital image in Photoshop. But I need to be able to visualize the change on a printed image.
