• Until recent years, archival film storage had been associated, at least in the public mind, with museums, government agencies, libraries, or other institutions concerned with the preservation of photographic records; however, other users of photographic film, such as commercial photographers, printing houses, publishers, and schools, have long been concerned with how best to ensure permanence of their irreplaceable photography.
• A sophisticated generation of amateur photographers who observed how time, humidity and casual storage damaged valuable slides and prints, nowadays, have converted to using archival storage techniques. They, too, appreciate that a picture good enough to keep is good enough to keep forever.
• Exclusive thin backing coupled with high clarity provides excellent resolution when proofing without removing negatives from the preserver. No other manufactured preserver has this feature. Also, continuous seams eliminate the problem of negatives hanging up in the sleeve itself. You can literally load and unload Print File preservers easier and faster.
• The Exclusive Hanging File System is designed specifically for hanging photographic records in standard file drawers or file boxes. Simply slide the hanger into the preserver's I.D. strip, and it's ready for hanging. And you don't need to be a professional photographer to keep your negatives, prints, slides, and transparencies permanently protected. While you might not be able to maintain an optimally cool, dehumidified vault, you can be assured that careful handling and storage of film and print material, using Print File archival preservers, will help keep your film library in top quality condition for years to come.
I use these to store currency from around the world, they work great.
Preserve photo and documents
These are great, and I keep coming back to buy more as I continue organizing my family's 1980s-90s photos. You can't tell much from the picture here, which made me hesitant to buy them, but I'm glad I did. The pages are perfectly clear, with a white strip down the left side where you can write if you like. The pockets fit pics that are 3.5 x 5 inches, but you can fit up to a 5-1/8 inch width maximum. The pages fit into any standard 3-ring binder. No problems with moisture getting into the pockets or anything (I've had problems with other products - but not these). They feel nice, and are sufficiently sturdy without being too thick or too thin. Photos are easy to put in/take out. Photos look clear, bright, and nicely organized when stored in these pages.
The re-fill photo pages were a gift to me but I helped my husband order them. I have hundreds of pictures to put into albums. I have done a hit and miss job in the past. Having a loose-leaf type of refill photo pages will help me to put the pictures in a chronological order much easier than using the post-type of refill page. I also like that the pages are thin.
I like displaying photos in these type pages because they have clarity and are easy to fill.
Though I liked to be able to place photos going in both directions (vertical and horizontal) I would like a packet that has photos going in only one direction as well---all vertical or all horizontal.
i used to buy pages from century photo for yrs till they kind of went belly up and customer service was no where to be found. I still love to put photos in albums and mark the yrs so i can just grab an album and relive that time. I am so happy my google search sent me to your company. Prices are awesome as compared to what i had been paying with century. plus delivery was very fast.
I use the Print File Archival Photo Pages to display 8" X 10" misc. photos and other archive material, such as newspaper clipings, etc. They are strong, clear and serve their purpose, at a great price. Adorama is the best source for quality archival needs[...]
