Archival Photo Corners

Written by Mark Rogers

Many of us think of photo corners like the ones in the photo albums our grandmother had. Beautifully constructed with thick black paper and black photo corners, these were designed to house a multitude of memories while adding an extra touch to help showcase the entire collection. As times have changed, so has our approach and knowledge of the proper care for photographs. Today’s photo corners are not those of yesteryear; these are now mostly built for archival use and rely on a clean, minimalist design to help hold your pictures in place.

Alternative attempts at fastening photos down can be quite damaging. Some try to use spray adhesive for the simplicity of the process, but harsh chemicals can quickly damage pictures by interacting with the substances used to process your photos. In order to maintain the integrity of their photographs, most photographers utilize archival polypropylene photo mounting corners. Polypropylene acid free photo corners will not harm your pictures. An added benefit of the self-adhesive backing is that while they remain firmly in place, there is no added distraction from the art and display of the photographic work.

Lineco-polypropeline-photo-cornersFrame Destination offers photo corners that are crystal clear to allow for full viewing of your images. Multiple sizes are available to fit your mounting needs and come with 100 to 500 per box. The best part is that our Lineco adhesive photo corners have all passed the Photo Activity Test. The Photographic Activity Test (PAT) was created by the Image Permanence Institute of America to test the quality of picture storage materials.
