Photos are valuable items that we often forget need special attention when storing. Now with digital options available, it’s more important to keep those old physical photos protected. Chances are you do not have digital copies of those photos from the 90s. Turning them into a digital version is an expensive and time-consuming process if you don’t have the right equipment. Well, here at Stop and Store Victoria, Self Storage is our life and we know how to store photos. Let us give you some tips.
Photographs are very sensitive to many things. One being the natural oils on your fingers/hands. Now, you have two options here, use cloth gloves when handling them or encasing them in plastic protectors. We opt for the second option as photos are meant to be shared and requiring gloves for everyone isn’t always feasible. You can buy large amounts of these photo sleeves for any size for quite cheap.

Chances are you have hundreds of photos with a variety of locations, dates and times. Now it’s time to sort them into specific piles that suites you. This can be by year or by location, it doesn’t matter as long as it makes sense to you and is easy to find what you are looking for.
Get some cheap photo albums/binders and being putting the organized piles into these binders. Be sure to label each binder with what is inside. You do not want to go through multiple albums before you find what you are looking for. You can grab some cheap albums here.
Now that all your photos are labelled, protected and organized, it’s time to store them away. You may have room in your home, or opt for a remote location if space is an issue. You can store all your photos with us at Stop and Store Victoria. We offer inside self storage and we ensure all units are clean and dry, a perfect atmosphere for your precious photos.
