Best Photographic Storage Pages in 2020



BCW 2-Pocket Clear Protective Pages | Archival Safe Binder Pages 7-1/8" x 5-1/2" | 100-Count per Pack (1-Pack) Review:


These clear protective pages are perfect for what I needed them for. I have over 100 old Victorian photos of my family that I needed to preserve for future generations. I went on Amazon looking for some acid-free, archival sheets and found these. These sheets are sturdy, yet very clear. My Cabinet photos fit perfect, and the sheets fit perfectly into a three-ring binder. I also have a kitchen vac-and-seal so after I placed my photos into the pockets of the sleeves, I sealed them shut. These pictures should be well preserved for generations to come. Great product!



Print File 2x2-20B Archival Storage Page for 20 Slides - Pack of 25 - 050-0270 Review:


I ordered two of these to archive 800 slides after removing them from carousels and scanning them. I could not be happier. Light weight but tough. None of them tore during slide insertion. They were fairly easy to push the slide in, basically use one of the corners of the slide to get it started, then straighten up and it goes right in. The slides do not seem like they'd come out from shaking them in the book, though I didn't test this. If you're not going to use your carousels anymore (converting them to scanned images for example) they are well worth the money and you'll save a lot of space. Space savings are significant: A laundry basket sized box full of carousals can be slimmed down to two large encyclopedia sized books. In addition the slides can be viewed in the pages by putting them up to a light source. This will be quite handy as I still need to refer to the slides to get dates and other information.



Archival Photo Pages Holds Two 8 x 10" Prints, Pack of 25 Review:


Product is as advertised. Bought this for my 35mm prints as I develop them in a dark room. It holds each print without them being a hassle to insert and doesn't let them slip out. Plastic is nice and thick so your prints are protected and it doesn't tear if a corner of them gets caught on the way in. Overall very satisfied and will order again once I run out!



Print File 120-4B Negative Preservers for 120 Film - 25 Pack Review:


These sleeves are fantastic as they have openings from the left and right side of the page. This is great if you have cut some of your negatives that you only want to scan for specific pictures in your film.

A small feature is that the pages come with different hole punches for being able to be placed into different albums.

The only down side is that they are design for only specific medium format negatives it fits square 6x6cm or longer dimensions. When organizing my grandparents medium format negatives, they had some other larger negatives where I had to use a traditional 4x6 inches print sleeve page to hold them as they were larger.

I recommend this brand for negatives as I have also used them for 35mm for the same benefits.



BCW 2-Pocket Clear Protective Pages | Archival Safe Binder Pages 7-1/8" x 5-1/2" | 25-Count per Pack (1-Pack) Review:


Strong seams and thick plastic. I am pleased with this purchase. This is the sort of quality plastic I expect when I buy card sheets from Ultra Pro. I am pleased to see another brand with the same high standards.

I bought a few different archival pages with various sized pockets to create an album of all the post cards, clipped ads, packaging and random paper paraphernalia I have in my Beauty and the Beast collection.
See my other reviews:
Avery Mixed Format Photo Pages, Acid Free, Pack of 10 (13401)
Avery Secure Side-Load Sheet Protectors, Heavy Gauge, Letter Size, Diamond Clear, 25 per Pack (76001)

These 5x7 pockets are a nice size and the bits of paper slip in easily. I am however a little concerned that some items in the top pocket might slip out if someone flips the book pages too quickly from the bottom. Still, I would buy these again.



Archival 120 Size Negative Pages Holds Three Strips of Four 6 x 6 Frames, Pack of 25 Review:


I shoot with a Mamiya c220 TLR, and the way the film loads and shoots results in negatives that run down the film, rather than across (how it would be on a normal 35mm or rangefinder). These sheets allow me to see my slides and negatives quickly and with the correct orientation at a glance when going through my negative folders. It also helps produce correctly oriented contact sheets.

The only downside is if you scan your film, the four negative cut produces negatives which will not fit in a regular size film scanner. It's not that big of a deal, but it is a slight inconvenience.

Otherwise these are great. The negatives slip in and out as needed.
