• Two piece box with removable top section. Bottom section has a drop front for easy removal of prints. These archival fiberboards were developed specifically for the long-term storage and conservation of photographic materials. They are made of materials that are acid-free and contain no products (like lignin, ground wood, sulphur or recycled chipboard) that might harm negatives or photographs. Plus a unique patented Dual Chemistry Alkaline buffered exterior and a neutral non-buffered interior, separated with a polyester barrier. These boxes will give your photographic collection the best possible protection. All of the boxes come with metal reinforced corners.
• Drop front storage boxes are available in a wide range of sizes. The drop front on one long side of the bottom piece allows collections to slide gently in and out of the box, as fingers do not force their way down the sides with this style of box.

I bought the 8x10 and 16x20 sizes of this product. This is esentially a copy of my review of the 8x10 version of this product since the review is eqally applicable. I used to store the vast bulk of my darkroom output in old photo paper boxes. Knowing that photo paper boxes are not acid free or safe for archival darkroom print storage, I decided to switch to archival storage boxes. These Adorama boxes are a low cost alternative to brand name alternatives and I believe they are every bit as good. They appear to be made of rigid matt board-like material with tough metal-reinforced corners. They are substantially stronger than the boxes photo paper comes in. From now on, all my prints are going to be stored in these boxes (when they are not hanging on the wall). It's Adorama branded products like this that keep me coming back. Great quality at significant (30-40%) savings. Nice work, Adorama.
