I purchased six of these Cropper Hopper Photo/Negative Protectors. I understood that there were 4 to a box, what I did not understand is that each protector has some depth to it. I was purchasing the extras to go into the Cropper Hopper Photo Case for our family snapshots. Turns out that the three boxes of Cropper Hopper Photo Protectors once folder together correctly is enough to fill up the CH Photo Case. So I have extras. Not to worry though, i am going make copies of some of the snapshots for my boys and I will put them in the CH Protector and then into a decorative photo box for them.
My husband got me some of these for Christmas, and I started organizing that same day! I have been hanging onto photos in their orignal paper sleeve for YEARS & they were falling apart (and probably not the most "photo safe" thing to store in either). My filing system was on the brink of just coming apart at the seams. I haven't stuck my labels on yet...but b/c the packets are clear, I can see through to the first picture & I turn around the last picture, so that one shows through also. It makes it easy for me to quickly see what photos that pack contains.
These little boxes are the greatest for photo storage! I only bought 2 packs to store photos in that are waiting to be scrapped, but now I see that I need to order several more to keep all the old photos organized and stored for future generations to plunder through. I just wish they had 5 x 7 and 8 x 10 sizes available. I guess a girl can't have it all! LOL!!
There truelly is no better way to store your photo's. They are acid free and see through. It is a great way to organize your photo's into Date or event. They come with labels that you can adhear to the top of the envelope which makes it really easy to find the photo that you want to scrap.
