METAL EDGE BOXES
Short Top Boxes
Often called an “Archival Shoe Box,” this style box is a general purpose container for safely storing and protecting post cards, photographic prints and collectibles. They are also commonly used for storage of small specimens such as mineral samples.
Our short top boxes have removable, close-fitted tops to seal out dust and insects. Embossed labeling areas on box end and lid front neatly, accurately and consistently locate and position standard pressure-sensitive (PSA) identification label.
Short top boxes are manufactured from .056 tan-white, acid- and lignin-free ArchivalGrade™ boxboard. Metal edge clamps are anti-corrosion treated with a black polyester coating with a wax-free polyester finish on the blind side. These clamps provide both rigidity and high stacking strength.
Available: Short top boxes are offered in four sizes.
