If you’ve ever gone through an old shoebox of family photos, you know that it’s easy to accumulate a lot of pictures and hard to let them go. But more than likely, you don’t always have the time or space to make scrapbooks and picture albums. A photo storage box is a great way to keep treasured pictures safe, while also saving space.

These archival-quality photo storage boxes have a drop front and fully removable lid. They measure 8.5 by 10.5 by 3 inches, and they’re made from buffered 60-point board. They’re available in two packs and larger sizes as well.

This archive photo storage box measures 11 by 14 inches, making it ideal for larger pictures or drawings, and is 2 ¼ inches deep, making this a slim option for storage. The sturdy board exterior is designed to resist bending or denting.

While all of the plastic photo storage boxes measure 12.1 by 9.4 inches, you’ll have a range of heights including 1.4, 2.1 and 3 inches. Note that these boxes are not acid-free.

This photo storage box has a reusable spine label, so you can re-label it over and over again. It’s also archival-safe as well as acid- and lignin-free to protect your memories.

This archive photo storage box measures 11.25 inches long, 7.75 inches wide and 4.5 inches tall. It’s also acid-free and comes with index cards for easy organization.

Photo storage boxes are a wonderful way to store memories. I have always loved going through old family photos, and now I enjoy making keepsake photo boxes with my own children. Be sure to look for boxes that protect the photos inside, as you wouldn’t want them to get damaged in storage.
