    Default Best physical albums for display?

    Hi everyone,

    I recently went on student exchange to the US and have brought back dozens of lovely snaps now stored on my notebook. I'd like to print the photos out and display them in a nice album so friends and family can see them all.. any recommendations? I've considered the following options:

    1) Sticky album with plastic flaps
    - do these make photos fade?

    2) scrapbook with acid-free pages

    3) slot-in 4R size album
    -archival quality, acid-free pages, but borrrriiiinnngg....

    Do let me know!

    Thanks

    you cant take the photo out again.....and it kind of make the
    photos sticky on the face too....

    no sticky album, in a long run it will be very difficult to take out and might spoil the photo surface. I used that and I know.

    The best is still the traditional slot in type.

    The traditional slot type can become sticky if you print glossy. If you have a penchant for layout and page design, i think the acid-free scrapbook is the way to go.
