The ALB albums are the Print File premium brand photo album. The ALB has a black buckram textured material covering and 1.5″ D-rings. As an added feature a matching slipcase is available for the ALB-G and ALB-S albums. The ARC albums are a more “utilitarian” choice for photo, slide, negative or CD preserver storage. The ARC album features a highly textured polyethylene interior and exterior. The ARC-G has a 1.5″ silver D-ring and the ARC-S feature a 1″ silver D-ring. Both albums are completely archival and safe for long-term storage.
