Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Picture Storage Purchase these after going thru the closet at my mom's after she past away. She had a lotof old pictures still in photo albums that were starting to cause pictures to fade. These will work out perfect to keep them in without further fading.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from large Archival Box I am in charge of filing and maintaining 57 years of our ladies fishing club (IWFA) and these boxes and envelopes are perfect for all of it. I also have the large archival boxes for the 8 x 10 black and white photos and some of the most important letters that the club received in there most earliest days of Ladies fishing in the 1950's. Our files and photos were being lost due to the humidity and paper eating bugs now they will be preserved for the next 57 years. Thank you for having a great product so the history of the earliest ladies fishing around the world can be saved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Nice Photo Box I really like this box! My mom got me a small fire proof safe (1.23 cu. ft.) for christmas. I have been looking for an archival photo box that would hold all my grandmothers photos, and fit in the safe. This one fits the bill perfectly. It even comes with 12 photo sleeves! (those are like $7. a pack, so really it's like the box is only $10.) Also this box is really well made. It is made with very thick board and nice metal rivets on the outside corners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I wanted I was looking for an archival box for storing old family photos, and this is just the ticket. I was pleased with the size when I received it, I thought it would be smaller when I ordered it, but I needed one bigger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic for larger, longer photographs I purchased this product while organizing and archiving old photographs. I bought this specifically for 5x7 and panoramic prints, and I'm happy to report I am NOT disappointed. This box fits 5x7 prints perfectly, and while it's a little big for the panoramic prints (the sort you get from an APS camera), it's still the best one I've found on the market. I love that the edges are reinforced as well - I don't have to worry about whether or not this box is going to stand up to the test of time. The envelopes inside are too small for 5x7 prints, true - but it's not like I won't use them elsewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Organization Product! I have bought at least 8 of these so far to help me organize all my photos for my family, of which there are thousandssss. They hold a ton of photos, and the envelopes help me organize them by date and event. Definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The archival box and archival enveloves are great for storing photos you want to keep and preserve. A simple, yet effective system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Photo Storage These were a great solution for all of my loose photos. The boxes stack nicely for maximum storage. They also look great.
Date published: 2010-03-03
Rated 2 out of 5 by from not as billed I purchased this because it was supposed to be good for APS photos but the envelopes for storing the photos that it comes with are for 4x6 prints rather than the wider format APS prints so I'm stuck just putting the prints in the box without being in the protective envelopes. Definitely disappointing!

does this hold 5 x 7 photos

Asked by: Kim w
The box measures 7.5”W x 7.5”D x 5.5”H. So, yes, it will easily hold 5x7 photos. The envelopes are wide enough but not tall enough for 5x7 prints. The flap will not fold down like it is supposed to. I guess one can fold it down partially by making a new crease on it.
