Comparison: Prices of photo storage boxes

Photo storage boxes offer more protection that a shoe box, allow you to organise printed photos, and can be beautiful ways to store your 4x6 photos. Photography boxes may hold CD or DVD photos as well as printed photos. You should look for acid-free boxes to protect your photos if you plan to use photo boxes as archival photo storage.

Prices of basic photo storage boxes

A simple photo storage box can be found for under £10. Boots has a plain photo box that is black and has space to write the date of the photos for £6.99 (as priced on 20.06.11). Most mass merchandise stores have cardboard boxes that can hold 4X6 photos. They can also double as a CD/DVD storage box. These are perfect to keep next to portable photo printers so that you can store photos after you print them if you want to send them off to friends or sort them into photo books later.

Look for photo boxes in home organisation stores

The Holding Company has a lot of nice looking photo boxes in their stores, catalogues, and online shop. They have simple acid free storage boxes for £9.00 (as priced on 20.06.11). These photo boxes are Earth-friendly because they are made from recycled materials. They have several colours, so you can get white, orange, or red storage boxes (among other colours). This can help organise photos by children - one child's school photos are stored in the red box, another in the white. The Holding Company also has metal photo storage boxes. They look more decorative and attractive, and can be CD box storage as well as photo storage. The metal photo storage boxes are priced from £15.00 to £24.00 (as priced on 20.06.11).

The white box has cut-outs at the top of the box to show some of the photos that are stored inside. You can use this as a way to describe the photos by showing photos from a specific occasion or holiday on the top of the box.
