Making My Time at Home Picture Perfect

During quarantine time at home, I decided it was time to do some spring cleaning. That was when I found a new project to fill my time. A box of photos called out to me. I’d meant to place them into photo albums but had never found time. Now was that time.

For this task, I decided to look at C-Line’s photo holder options. There were several options that looked like they would work well.

One option was the Photo Storage Pages that fit 3-1/2” by 5” photos . I had a lot of these size photos waiting to be mounted from trips I’d taken to Europe, Central America and the Florida Keys. The photo pages keep the images organized and allow me to move them around, via the top loading slots. Each sheet fits 8 photos (4 on each side). The pages are sized at 11-1/4” x 8”, so they easily fit into a standard 3-ring binder. This means I can reorganize the photos, as necessary.

These Storage Pages work well with photos that are 3-1/2 x 5 inches or smaller in size.

I also have some larger photos I plan to store. For these photos, I will use Photo Storage Pages for 5” x 7” photos. Some of my larger postcards will fit into these pages. The sheet size is 11-1/4” x 8” and will also fit into a 3-ring binder. Each page fits 4 photos and is APS Compatible. Made from polypropylene, these photo pages offers acid-free, permanent storage, and produce “no copy transfer”. This means there is no danger of toners, colors, inks, or other materials lifting off the stored photos and sticking to the photo pages.

These Storage Pages work well with photos that are 5 x 7 inches or smaller in size.

For my super-sized photos and postcards, where some holders were too small, I opted for C-Line’s Redi-Mount Ring Binder Photo Mounting Sheets. These sheets are 11” x 9”. They have a clear pull back sheet, under which I can mount my photos on the adhesive backing. I placed my oversized photos, postcards and memorabilia into these.

Redi-Mount Ring Binder Photo Mounting Sheets work great with larger photos or odd sized postcards.

Finally, I used one of C-Lines 1-1/2” three-ring binders to house my photo pages.

C-Line binders are great to use with your 8-1/2 x 11 inch photo pages.
