Photographic Storage

Archival Storage of Photographs and Negatives
Photos and negatives should be placed in a primary enclosure such as an envelope, sleeve or binder page. The primary enclosure should then be placed in a secondary enclosure like an archival box or binder album. Photos may be placed single or back-to-back in the primary enclosure. Each negative should be stored in its own primary enclosure.
