Short Top Boxes
  • Application

    Often called an “Archival Shoe Box,” this style box is a general purpose container for safely storing and protecting postcards, photographic prints, CDs, and collectibles.

    Short Top Boxes are available in a variety of sizes, depths, and colors. The 04-003 box is perfect for storing collections of 4 x 6“ photographs or postcards, and now we offer it in as the 4 x 6 Simple Kit!

    These and the Full Top Boxes differ from the Drop Front Metal Edge Boxes because all four corners of the bottom tray are secured with metal edging.

  • Features

    Our short top boxes have removable, close-fitting lids to seal out dust and contaminants. Embossed labeling areas on box end and lid for easy positioning of optional identification labels.

    The 04-003 (6-1/2 x 10-1/2 x 4-1/2'' H) is perfect for storing 4 x 6'' photographs and postcards. Photographs vary in thickness, but on average you can fit 100 photographs per inch. This means you may fit about 1000 photos into this box.

    To sort and label categories for your photos and postcards in the 04-003 box, you can use the All Purpose Index Cards (02-04-Index). These Index Cards are scored along the side and bottom edges, so they can be trimmed to fit into this box.

    The 04-103 Short Top Box is designed to hold CDs and DVDs. If storing CDs in standard size jewel cases it will hold up to 28 CDs.
