Most of us who are familiar with photo printing will have printed hundreds (if not thousands) of photos at our local photo retailer. Some of you may not be aware that the actual size and name of this standard size photo print is a 4x6 inch (10x15cm) and finding a photo album to store these photos is easy, as every retailer that sells photo albums will sell this photo size compatible photo album.
However, those of us who choose to enlarge our photos (or have received enlargement photos from friends or family) may face the problem of finding a photo album that suits your enlargement photos. There is also a problem with trying to find a photo album for Polaroid photos as well.
Any photo print size that is larger than a 4x6 inch is considered an enlargement size photo. The most common enlargement sizes available include:
- 5x7 inch (13x18cm)
- 6x8 inch (15x20cm)
- 8x10 inch (20x25cm)
- 8x12 inch (20x30cm)
- 10x13 inch (25x33cm)
- 11x14 inch (28x35cm)
The help solve this problem, we have three solutions available to you:
- Compatible Enlargement Size Slip-in Photo Albums
- Drymount Photo Albums
- Self-Adhesive Photo Albums (also referred to as Magnetic Page or Easy-Peel)
1. Enlargement Size Slip-in Photo Albums:
There is a number of enlargement size Slip-in photo albums available within our range. They include a 5x7 inch slip-in (also referred to as a photo pocket album) and also a 6x8 inch slip-in photo album, with different photo capacity. Popular examples of a 5x7 slip-in album include our Citi Leather Photo Albums.
2. Drymount Photo Albums:
A Drymount photo album (also referred to as a pergamyn or traditional style photo album) features blank pages with glassine interleaving (sometimes referred to as rice-paper) between each page to separate each page and protect your photos.
Drymount photo albums have an advantage over Slip-in albums in that they allow for flexible mounting and positioning of photos onto the album page. They also allow for multiple enlargement sizes within the same page or album. The maximum photo size will be governed by the usable page area of the photo album. Below is an example of a Drymount album which illustrates in red the usable page area
Drymount photo albums can also an perfect solution for popular Polaroid photos and other odd shaped photos.
