The black 11.75 x 15 x 1.5" Drop-Front Archival Storage Box from Archival Methods is suitable for safely and securely storing prints, photos, artwork, and similar mounted or unmounted documents that are best stored flat. It is also well suited for storing musical scores, pamphlets, letters, and newspapers, and is made from heavyweight ArchivalGrade boxboard.

We all have boxes and boxes of old pictures that we have inherited from our families. Most of these photos are usually stored in attics and closets in old-fashioned cardboard boxes that are subject to degradation from humidity, water, and other elements. This storage box is a high-quality container that is not only suitable for preserving today's digital pictures but also your traditional prints.

This metal-edged drop-front box consists of a removable top and a bottom with a hinged drop-front panel at the long side; this feature allows the bottom section to be opened so that contents can be inserted, removed, or examined safely without bending or flexing them in any way and the risk of dog-earing is minimized.

The box can hold from 5 to 100 unmatted and un-sleeved prints depending on the weight of the paper used. If the prints are matted, the box can hold up to 11 prints with 4 ply window and 4 ply backing, 22 prints with 4 ply window and 2 ply backing, or 44 prints with 2 ply window and 2 ply backing.

Black Finish: Textured paper laminated on acid- free black core

        Purchased this box to store my prints for the duration of a darkroom class. Excellent durability, very convenient because it is not too bulky, and also I think it looks classier in the black. The only thing I would say is that if you're looking for something more long-term than I was, get a 3" instead of a 1.5" because there is limited space.
