What is the size of the large box?

13-1/2"L x 16”W x 6” D at 7.5 lbs.


How much does the large box hold?

The large archival photo box holds approximately 2,400 5” x 7” or 4” x 6” photographs or cards. Each compartment is removable and customizable.


For reference, how many photos are in a one inch stack?

There are approximately 100 photos for every one inch stack of photos.


How will these boxes protect my photos?

Keeping your photos sorted and stored in acid-free boxes will preserve them over time. It is recommended that you scan and back up your sorted collection in three place in addition to physical storage.


Why are these boxes the best on the market?

The archival quality boxes are manufactured in America for museums and private collections. There is nothing comparable in quality, craftsmanship and design on the market.


How do I use these boxes?

Follow the step-by-step tutorial in the book Simply Spaced, Clear the Clutter and Style Your Life, to sort and file your printed photo collection or visit our blog and social media for more tips.


How should I label my photo collection?

A standard label maker is recommended, and each box comes with a blank label card. Find our favorite label makers here in the Simply Spaced shop.


What types of items can I store in my archival boxes?

You can store photos, mementos greeting cards, art and more in the archival boxes. 


Why should I store my photos in an archival box instead of albums or a regular box?

Many albums are not acid-free and cause photos to deteriorate over time. The archival box will protect your photos from dust, sun damage and deterioration while keeping your photos organized, accessible and streamlined. They also save space and look beautiful too!
