Photographs help us to freeze moments in time that have a distinctive significance for us. They may be pictures of a loved one, a special occasion, or an unforgettable holiday. When we look at them years later, it brings back the magic and the joy of that moment. Over many years, we may have accumulated many pictures and begin to wonder how to safeguard and store these favorite images.
Photographs may be a thing of the past with the advent of digital photography and video cameras, but for those who enjoy photography, it is more fun to do things the old-fashioned way. So while digital photography is an efficient way of storing our best images, a computer jpg file simply does not offer the same feeling we get when we hold up a photograph.
This is why, despite the pace of technology, it is sometimes more emotionally enriching to do things in a more traditional way. When it comes to the special people, places, and events in our lives, it is sometimes more satisfying to store our images as photographs that we can hold in our hands. Although putting photographs in an album is another alternative to storing them, this may not be a practical solution if we have amassed a huge number of photographs over the years. Our stack of albums might require several bookshelves. Finally, simply throwing photographs in a drawer may shrivel the corners and allow dust to ruin them.
The Benefits of Photo Boxes
Archival quality board photo boxes, especially those with strong, reinforced corners and edges, are a wonderful solution for storing treasured images. Although it’s possible to use a regular box, like, for example, a shoe box, this is not a safe way to store our favorite photographs because most boxes have a high acid content. Once acid affects our photographs, they can wrinkle the photographic paper or discolor the images. Besides preserving the color of our pictures because of the acid free materials used to construct these boxes, it’s easy to stack many of them.
Another benefit to using a photo box is that with dividers, you can organize the photographs by date or theme. These dividers may come with the box and they can also be purchased separately.
A Choice of Materials
Besides cardboard, photo boxes can come in other materials like wood or leather. Some wooden boxes allow you to display your favorite photograph inside the lid. Leather boxes create a more luxurious look and feel for your special photographs. Incidentally, both wooden and leather boxes make fabulous gifts, and you can make them even more invaluable by adding your favorite collection of photographs inside the box.
Photo boxes is a general term that describes any type of box that is designed specifically for use storing photos. Specific boxes include images boxes, wallet boxes and many others. They can also be used to store mementos, jewelry, accessories, wallets, purses, or anything else that you want to set aside for safe storage.
