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 Photo Storage Purchased storage organizers to organize years of photos and I am really glad I did! It is a journey as I have lots of photos to go, but love the storage items that I purchased.

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.

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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from photo storage Perfect for my needs. I was combining my photos & photos I inherited from my mother & grandmother. Sorting them by dates as I identified them into these containers, made am overwhelming task easier. Now as I scan them for the family, I know they are stored safely and will be all organized for the next generation to have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Work as Designed These photo cases work for what they were designed to do. Fun to fill with photos and keep them organized. Only problem is that for me as a scrapbooker I drag back other mementos that are too large, including postcards, airline tickets etc. I wonder whether the manufacturer would consider offering some alternative sizes. I used my label maker so it didn't matter that labels weren't included.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handy Storage On Sale, this is a good purchase (too pricey otherwise). I bought the set because it contained 6 individual containers, keeping them from ending up all over the place. My purpose was to file older extra photos (4X6) and the negatives (I did say "older"). You can store a large number of photos in each container, and the separate containers fit securely in the main box. It would be nice to have a labeling spot with each container and the box as well. Also, I had to trim some of the negatives to fit in the box, so it would be nice for the box not to be contoured as much. But it serves a purpose!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for standard size pictures I'm reorganizing all my pictures from photo boxes into these. I think I had 8 photo boxes and got everything into 3 1/2 of these cases. My only issue is that I have some larger photos that I had to get creative with. I bought the single 5x7 photo holders and put them in a different case. I also used the larger box for old postcards. I wish there was a small case filled with the 5x7 size. I feel like my photos are much more organized and I love that the cases are clear so you can easily see what's inside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great system! It makes organizing photos so much easier than anything else I've ever used. Just be sure you label each inner case as well as the carrier.

do you plastic photo storage carriers meetANSIIT9.16 PAT standards?

I want to make sure my photographs are not stored in a container that will actually harm them and cause them to deteriorate

Does the case holds liquids?

Would I be able to fit a few 8x10 and 5x7 photos in this box if I layed them on top of the individual cases?

I'm looking for a single storage solution for all of my photos and I can't seem to find something that holds multiple sizes in one place. Thanks!
Asked by: Nina73
They would fit, but it would only be a handful. When the lid is closed, there's not much room between the top of the lid and the individual cases.

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!

The 6-Case Photo Storage Box is 100% polypropylene, and acid-free, so it will work well for your storage needs.
