Forever changing items!!

Comments about Margo Storage Collection Shoebox® Photo Storage Box:
Disappointed. The material is different which is not easily dusted. I have 30 of the older version which I liked much better and they fit in to my shelves. When you have a good thing going....why change it! Would not purchase again.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

WARNING - NEW MARGO BOXES DO NOT FIT SHOEBOX TOWER!!!
About Me Photo Enthusiast
I have been using the Margo boxes for over a decade for all my photo storage needs. They look great in my corresponding Exposures Shoebox Towers and are easily accessible. I recently ordered 6 more Margo boxes and to my horror the new boxes do not fit into the compatible Shoebox Tower. ****Exposures has changed the size of the Margo boxes but nobody in their Customer Service department seemed to know how, why, or when this happened.**** The Margo boxes used to fit perfectly into the tower, but the new boxes are 1/4" wider. I am sending them all back. Such a huge disappointment. What's more disappointing is the lack of knowledge on behalf of the company that the new boxes don't fit. The website continues to claim that the Shoebox Tower "Accommodates 10 Shoebox Photo File Boxes" which is clearly a false claim. What good is the Shoebox Tower if the boxes don't fit? Epic fail. ****Do not order these boxes if you are looking to store them in the Shoebox Tower****

Not Museum Quality
The description says: "Our exclusive Shoebox® Margo photo storage organizes and protects your valuable photo memories beautifully. Exposures has been designing museum-quality photo storage for 20 years. The photo file storage box is perfect for safekeeping your most treasured memories." When I asked if the boxes were acid and lignin free, return email indicates that they are NOT. Because the issue was dodged in the description, I was suspicious. These boxes may be pretty but they are NOT adequate for archival use if they truly are not acid or lignin free.

Not worth the price
from Columbus, Ohio
About Me Pro Photographer
This is a great product but waaayyyy overpriced. As a company that deals with photos on a daily basis, I have seen better products out there for a better price. I only purchased this product as I was replacing one just like it for a customer. I also was not happy with the description not mentioning anything about being archival.
Quality photo boxes
from New York
I ordered these with the Haley tower because, well, the Haley tower is gorgeous and I wanted the boxes inside to be also. However, they cost more than the tower. I bit the bullet and got them. They ARE high-quality and they DO look nice. That's my mantra for getting over the price.I would recommend them to a friend based on quality but with the qualifier that the price is steep.
Nice, but overpriced
Based upon my interpretation of the product website information and photographs, I bought what I believed to be a set of five photograph storage boxes. In fact, I ended up with only one...and the smallest one at that. I still have many family photos to store, and would like to use this type of 'quality' storage box, but certainly not at these prices. I'll not be shopping here again.
from Hudson, NH
Great for any type of storage. I appreciate the quality of the box.
Attractive & Strong
The Shoebox by Exposures is in a completely different league than photo shoeboxes sold in stores. I do believe that I could stand on them and that they would stand up to the abuse. In addition, the Shoebox is very attractive and can be displayed on shelves and in bookcases.

Good Quality but label does not fit
By Jack's Mom
About Me Style Driven
I bought a number of these boxes for photo storage. I love them. The single problem that I have is that the sturdy label that comes with the box is too large. It is impossible to slide into the slot. If you ruin it, they will not replace. I was told to use regular paper. For such a pricey "shoebox", I expected a different response. It was unfortunate.
