Iris 6-Case 4" x 6" Photo and Craft Storage Box is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 244.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for storage The darker blue color was disappointing as it is much darker than it appears in the picture, it's nearly a solid color, therefore you can't see what is inside. I use these containers for everything, I carry one in my purse to hold the small items that use to end up in the bottom. Two of them are in my car console to hold small items, useful in drawers, etc anywhere you'd like to contain small things. I bought the set because it was cheaper than buying each case individually.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great storage! My daughter teaches high school math. She had laminated task cards for her students. I had cut them out after she laminated them and needed a way to group and store them. She had some clear boxes but they weren’t large enough for the cards. I found these boxes with the storage container. They are for 5 x 7 photos but worked great for my/ daughter’s needs. I love all of the storage solutions at The Container Store! Always great quality and price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacing Photo albums I am thrilled to remove more than 75 photo albums from shelves and closets in our home. The photo storage carrier assisted me, as I sorted through years of photos. The translucent cases allowed me to detail years/events on the individual cases, making chronologically order possible. The 5 cases consolidated my almost 8,000 photos into a manageable and easy to locate system. The cases will keep dust from collecting on the photos. Once filled, they were easy to store, giving my shelves and closets free space!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Photo Project My son died recently, and I was searching for a system to more easily organize and safely store all my old photos of him. His name is Noah, so when I found this rainbow option I knew I had to have it. Losing a child is the hardest thing I've ever done, and my grief is still very heavy. But, this photo project was a blessing. I enjoyed looking at all of my sons old pictures, and I'm sorry that I'm almost finished. I'm going to have them scanned, and the owner of the photo store said I can just bring the whole carrier in and they will scan them into folders by date for me. I'm planning to purchase more of these. I'd like to store all of my photos the same way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 12th Purchase!!! I don't know why but I certainly like this storage carrier! Kept on buying for myself and as retirement gifts for my friends. They all raved about it and so nice that we all can organize our pictures. I put labels on each inner case for easy reference. One carrier, I put all trinkets like paper clips, safety pins, buttons, tacks, picture hangers, etc. in each inner case and label them. YOU WILL FIND THEM HANDY so why wait? Go and buy one today!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TOTALLY AWESOME BOXES I totally love these boxes. I went from having several books of not knowing what was in each book to being organized and labeled. Makes it easier to find pictures when i need them. I would totally recommend these to anyone who wants to have your pictures organized.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I wish I would have ordered 2 of these! I absolutely love it! I have so many pictures. It is easier to store them this way then in a photo album. Each kid has their separate box and I sorted them by activities also. I used my label maker to mark each box. I have one for my family pictures and the list goes on! It is a great item. I will order another for sure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product These are the second time I've purchased this brand of case. 1 12 count, and just now, 2 16 count cases. My mother had albums with the corner tabs that we're getting tattered, and I needed something that would preserve the pictures and still be easy to get out and look through. These are great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from absolutely perfect I have hundreds of old printed photos that I removed from albums so I could scan and keep them in digital format. These storage boxes proved to be the perfect solution for what to do with those old photos. And now I'm inclined to store all new printed photos the same way. I like the look of photo albums but there is much to be said for the practicality of these boxes. The only dilemma now is deciding if photos should be categorized by chronology or subject.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product I had been looking for a better way to organize my photos b/f scrapbooking them. I had been looking at this for several weeks/months and decided to go from my hanging file folder system to this and I love it! I can label the outside of each case if needed but I have made a master list of picture (events) and numbered them and label the outside of the individual cases with the numbers from the sets inside and keep that master list in the lid -- great storage!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellant storage option for photos and more I have several of these cases and use them for many items. It started with photos. I quickly realized this can store other smallish items that I have had difficulty with in the past. For my scrapbook supplies, I have one for my "bling" stuff; one for my flowers; one for my small stamps that get lost in other containers. For sewing projects, my various needles and threads, especially the embroidery floss.I also keep extras of the inside cases around for use on special projects until they are done. Each project can store all the little items needed to complete them. Can not stress enough about the usefulness of this case.
Date published: 2015-08-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT for storing embroidery floss and supplies I keep all my embroider and needlework supplies in this carrier. I sort by color. The containers are exactly the right size for skeins of floss. You can see the colors and they don't get tangled. I always keep 1 - 2 empty cases which I use for projects on which I am currently working. Cases also good for needles, small scissors, etc. For ONCE in my life I can find if I have the correct color, not buy the same color over and over again, keep the floss neat and untangled. Such a blessing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best thing I've bought I purchased this photo carrier but for something other than photos. I use it for my fat quarters of fabric. They fit perfectly and I can take them with me easily. It also keeps them clean and dry. I will definitely be purchasing another one. The inner cases hold my thread and sewing items easily. If you ever come up with a storage case like this without the inner containers and just the center divider let me know. This is the best thing I have every bought.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Photo organization and storage When we moved 10 years ago, I placed all of our candid photos in a desk (7 drawers) & promised myself that they would be organized & protected by the next time we moved. I didn't want to start scrapbooking (I quilt!) and kept my eyes peeled for an alternative. When I saw these cases in a box I knew I "Had It"! I ordered the boxes, labelled them with my label maker & got separate sets to give my 2 adult children pictures particular to them. It took me 3 days to go thru all of them, but its been wonderful! And with the carrying case, we're ready to grab them & get in the car if another Katrina should come!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Storage for Photos I love the 12-case 4" x 6" photo storage carriers and purchased four of them. Each photo case holds 100 pictures so I am able to store 4,800 pictures from approximately 12 thick photo albums. The space saved is amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy this. I originally bought the 6-case storage carrier but realized it would not hold all the photos I needed to store. The latch on the 12-case carrier is much nicer than the 6-case carrier but both are sturdy. I like the latches on the individual cases as well. The colors help me distinguish the photo file and looks more fun. The all clear box is nice but too bland for me. I just put a file in the lid to hold photos larger than 4x6". I recommend the 12-case carrier and the 6-case storage box to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from alternative storage this case is great for storing playing cards. games like Rook, UNO, etc fit the boxes great. keeps all the games in one box. I use it at the house, then take it to the travel trailer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my photos!! Last year I decided to upgrade my photo storage from old shoe boxes to these plastic beauties. I loved how clean and organized it made them all. Then last week my upstairs neighbors burst a pipe and water poured down my ceiling and wall, all over my bookshelf that had my scrapbooking supplies, cookbooks and these photo boxes. These boxes SAVED my photos! Some water got into a couple of them, but it was so minimal that I was able to save all of them, with maybe 5-10% of them becoming a little water damaged around the edges. I don't want to even think what would have happened to my photos if they'd still been in shoe boxes! I found myself kissing these boxes as I clean up the ruined cookbooks, soaked craft supplies and sopping wet carpet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Neat Place for my pictures I started scanning all my boxes and old albums of photos to have everything available electronically. Wanted a secure, neat place to keep them instead of boxes which gather with dust. WELL the Photo STORAGE CARRIER is GREAT!!!! It is sturdy, easy to store and carry, and I love it. Now if they only came up with something for the panoramic photos.

Are the 12- individual cases included with the storage carrier? Or must they be purchased separately?

Will my photos that are enclosed in the smaller cases that fit 100 eventually stick together?

The photos I have are currently sticking together the way that I have them stored in shoeboxes.
Asked by: AlisonMarie
Never experienced that problem. However, old snapshots from the 50's tend to stick together from the processing coating on them and the color pictures tend to fade.

How tall are the individual cases?

I have some game pieces I'd like to store easily, and this looks like just the thing, but lying down they are about 1 inch tall. I want to make sure they would fit before purchasing. (Pieces are 1"x1"x2") Thanks!
Asked by: Tanith
The official response from The Container Store is not correct. I received this product intending to store flashcards that are 4.5"x6" but they did not fit. The actual outer dimensions of the individual cases are 6 5/8"x 4 5/8"x 1 1/8" but because of the shape of the case you'll only be able to fit something with maximum dimensions of 6 1/8" x 4 1/4" x 1".

Can you stack two of the 6-Case Storage containers on top of this 12-Case Storage container?

Asked by: Dilly
Actually, I have both the 12-case and the 6-case. and two 6-cases stack neatly on top of the 12-case (I actually have 2 'levels' of 2 6-cases stacked on top of 2 12-cases that are stacked on top of each other..). BTW, these are awesome and I'm coming back for more. :-)

Any suggestions on what to use to separate groups of photos inside inner box.

I want to mix different subjects of photos in one box because I want to fill up the inner box so I don't waste space by putting only 20 or so pictures in a single box but want to keep each subject separate. Any ideas?
Asked by: Debpom
We recommend separating different photographic subjects with thin sheets of cut tissue paper such as our Acid-Free Tissue, item 452110.

Are box and inner cases PVC-free?

I need an archival-quality box for photos that is acid-free AND PVC-free and made of polypropylene plastic. Can you tell me if this product qualifies? Thanks!
Asked by: savvyaye
The 6-Case Photo Storage Box is 100% polypropylene, and acid-free, so it will work well for your storage needs.
