Tiny Photo Processing Project
The board and photograph are then both marked with the catalog number in pencil (photo on the back and board on the front). Both are slid into a Mylar sleeve. I tend to cut my boards just a smidge smaller (as in 1/8"-ish) than the Mylar sleeve I'm using so that it slides in fairly easily without either getting stuck or falling out immediately. With this assembly you can see the photograph and the catalog number on the board. All of the photos, in their nice little protective houses, go upright, in number order in an acid free box (not squished too tightly!), with labels on the box side, front and lid. I find this to be a pretty durable storage method. The boards support everything well, the Mylar enables you to pull and view the photos without touching them, and the whole setup gently flattens the photos - as you can see, this particular photo was curling a bit before it was placed in the sleeve.
