Use Print Storage Pages in Archival Binders to safely store your photographs, prints, and 35mm slides. Use these pocket pages to store other paper collectibles such as notes, letters, postcards, recipes, and trading cards.
Archival Print Storage Pages are great for protecting and accessing photographs and collectibles. You can easily organize your photos to create an album that captures your memories and reflects your family’s personality. Your images and artifacts will be safe and easy to access and enjoy!
Do you have old family letters or genealogy notes in various sizes? Our archival Print Storage Pages are the answer, as they too come in a number of sizes. By using our various pages you can keep letters and notes – large and small – organized and together.
You can even intersperse pages of family photographs with these letters to add identifying “context” to each. For example, letters written by old great-grandad Osgood J. Fuzzwort can include a photograph of the man, helping future generations know just “who’s who & what’s what.”
The possibilities are endless, and are limited only by your own imagination and your desired method of organizing your own family history. How cool is THAT, folks!!!
If you’re anything like me, you have a collection of SOMETHING. In the pix above on the left I’m storing both family and collectible postcards in 4 x 6 Print Storage Pages, while the envelopes on the right, which are hand-signed by Apollo-era astronauts, are stored in archival 5 x 7 pages.
You can do the same thing with your collection of vintage Valentine’s Day or Christmas cards, old collectible bank notes or stock certificates, your kids’ school artwork, important legal documents like birth or marriage certificates, deeds, automobile titles, antique dollar bills and other collectible currencies, the list goes on and on (and on…!!!).
35mm slides can also be easily accommodated in our Slide Storage Pages. As is often the case, particular family photos of important events such as weddings, graduations and especially vacations were shot on once-popular 35mm color slide film. This often means that the ONLY photographic record of such events exist ONLY as slides.
Our advice? Go through your family’s slides and have the best / most important images scanned and printed (and then stored / displayed in our Print Storage Pages, of course!), then KEEP the original slides in our Slide Storage Pages, along with any notes you may find as to who / what / where / when you might find written on the outside of the slide box. You’ll then have this great family resource archivally protected and easily accessible for future use!
As mentioned, Archival Methods’ Print Storage Pages can be used for just about ANYTHING! Sure, they’re the right choice for a variety of standard photograph and snapshot formats (see list below), but they’re also PERFECT for organizing and preserving genealogical records, notes, letters, collectibles – even cherished family recipes!
In the images above, both handwritten recipes and those cut from magazines and newspapers are archivally preserved in 8-1/2 x 11 (left) and a 4 x 6 (right) Print Storage Pages for immediate use in making dinner tonight and for future generations to know all of your (or grandma’s / grandpa’s, or even great-grandma’s / great-grandpa’s) secret recipes the whole family has come to know and love.
Spill cake batter or spaghetti sauce on them? No problem, folks! Just carefully wipe ’em off. Boom!
Archival Slide & Print Storage Pages
Our heavyweight, high-clarity, archivally safe polypropylene Slide and Print Storage Pages are heavier than many other “arts & crafts store” brands, so they will not tear, wrinkle or distort. They will also not discolor, shrink or become stuck to whatever it is you’re storing in them (just keep ’em dry, folks, which is something you’re gonna do anyway).
Our strong polypropylene pages measure 115 microns or .0045 on each wall of the pocket, with the total thickness of the page coming in at 9 mil (sorry for the technical jargon, but hey, some people want to know!).
All of our high-quality pages are three-hole punched in the “standard” location for use with our archival 3-Ring Collector Grade Binder, Binder-in-a-Box and RingFolio Binder Box (see pix above), all of which are made with pride right here in the USA in Archival Methods’ own on-site production facility.
We recommend using our binders as we GUARANTEE their archival quality, something you will NOT find with cheap “office supply store” binders. For more information, please check out our short Albums & Pages Video.
In terms of capacity, each print pocket for the following sizes of pages will hold TWO same-size prints or documents back to back, so page capacity is effectively DOUBLED! (35mm pages have 20 pockets for 20 individual cardboard, plastic or glass mounted slides.) Our available sizes include:
• 8 x 10 (ONE pocket holds TWO 8 x 10″ prints / documents / collectibles)
• 8-1/2 x 11 (ONE pocket holds TWO 8-1/2 x 11″ prints / letters / documents / collectibles)
• 3-1/2 x 5 (FOUR pockets hold EIGHT 3-1/2 x 5″ prints / cards / notes / recipes / collectibles)
• 4 x 5 (FOUR pockets hold EIGHT 4 x 5″ prints / cards / notes / recipes / collectibles)
• 4 x 6 (THREE pockets hold SIX 4 x 6″ prints / cards / notes / recipes / collectibles)
• 5 x 7 (TWO pockets hold FOUR 5 x 7″ prints / cards / notes / recipes / collectibles)
• 35mm (TWENTY pockets hold TWENTY 35mm cardboard / plastic / or glass mounted slides)
