The black 17.5 x 22.5 x 1.5" Drop-Front Archival Storage Box from Archival Methods protects and stores digital and photographic prints, that either have been matted or matted, inside the 1.5" deep drop-front box. Therefore, the archival box will approximately hold 22 2/2 ply mounted prints. The box is constructed of a heavyweight archival-grade boxboard that has a matte laminate coating, which makes the box resistant to water. Removing the box top reveals a hinged drop-front panel on the front long side; thus, the bottom section of the box allows the contents to be inserted, removed or examined safely.

The corners of the box top have been reinforced with metal corners. The metal clamps have been treated with a black polyester coating with a wax-free polyester finish, which make them anti-corrosive. The clamps give rigidness to the box and strength for stacking on top of each other. The box is PAT passed, which means it's suitable for long-term storage.

Made from fully bleached, high-alpha cellulose pulp. It does not contain any post-consumer waste recycled pulp. Paper is free of metal particles, waxes, plasticizers, residual bleach, and peroxide; sulfur content is less than 0.0008% reducible sulfur.
Metal edge clamps are corrosion-treated with a black polyester coating and a wax-free polyester finish.
Constructed from heavyweight archival-grade boxboard.
Lignin content is measured as per the phloroglucinol test with a Kappa number of 5 or less.
Metallic impurities and iron content will not exceed 150 ppm and copper shall not exceed 6 ppm; no optical brightening agents are used in the pulp.
Paper contains a minimum of 3% calcium carbonate (CaCO3) with a pH range from 8 to 9.5.
Alkaline or neutral sizing is used; no alum rosin or rosin sizing is used.
Color dyes are light-fast and non-bleeding.
Surface of the paper is smooth and free from knots, shives, and abrasive particles.
Board will not degrade and cause harm to the artifacts.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Arrived Damaged and Ripped I needed to buy a portfolio for a presentation, I liked how it was sent to me so quickly, but the box was damaged, within the wrapping itself.� Not only does it look like it's been dropped a few times, but it's ripped in 2 separate places as well.� The plastic wrapping around it wasn't ripped, so I feel as though it was damaged before it was even packaged. The way the material is as well it would have to take some effort for it to be ripped. I'm upset that now I have to present with a box that is damaged which looks poorly on my behalf. I would recommend to anyone that is buying one of these boxes to search for it somewhere else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good, inexpensive archival storage Needed simple, inexpensive archival storage for 17x22 digital prints. Wasn't sure 1.5 height would be enough for what I needed but turned out to be more than enough. Have placed 40 prints with cover sheets and much more room to go. Well worth it. The box is oversize by half and inch. Easy to retrieve prints without damaging edges, corners, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Economical and safe print storage. Economical and safe print storage. They even look nice but anyone who has mistaken them for a presentation case should have reread the description. There IS a reason these cost so much less than a presentation case..they are not as sturdy and don't look nearly as nice. But for long term print storage these are the ticket.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flimsy The box looks nice but arrived with bends and creases all along the sides. Like it was either poorly packaged or mishandled, or stored wrong. This was purchased for a presentation, so that's really poor. Don't have time to exchange it, so I'm stuck with something sloppy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay for storage An okay professional storage container for prints but as said in the other review But it's a little light weight for the size I purchased. (17 x 22) When you store a large number of 17x22 prints, it should be a little more substantial.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well constructed, great quality product I use these for storage of my prints for later inclusion in presentations and the drop front is useful, if a bit stiff when new. Overall what's not to like!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would definately buy this product again This is a very elegant looking archival storage box, in black. It has the drop front, which makes it very east to access your prints.
