BINDERS & ALBUMS
Collector Grade 3-Ring Binders
Three-ring binders quickly bring and maintain order to any collections of prints, photographs, postcards and the like. Do not confuse these binders with inexpensive vinyl-clad “school binders.” Many vinyl and other low quality binders are responsible for problems such as image transfer and acid migration. Its one thing if you are filing office papers, but if you are organizing collectibles and important memories you should only use binders that meet the very highest archival standards.
Crafted like fine books, our Collector Grade binders are offered in your choice of four colors. A high quality binder board core is bound in library–grade buckram with an acid-free card stock lining. A premium, slant-style D-ring assembly with rugged tab-actuated locking mechanism is securely riveted to the back inside cover and will accommodate more pages than traditional O-ring binders. Binders hold pages up to 10-1/2” x 11-3/4”, accommodating your choice of storage pages for prints, slides and negatives.
Available: Offered in two ring sizes: 1-1/2” rings hold 60 pages with prints / 2-1/2” rings hold 85 pages with prints.
Slip Cases: To create an even safer, dust-resistant storage environment select a binder with a black slip case. They offer yet another layer of protection by providing a further barrier against dust and other pollutants. They look great, and allow you to line your shelves with your most important binders at your fingertips.
