FAQs

Q. What are your Refill pages made from?

A. Most of our Refill pages are made from Polypropylene which is a chemically inert substance, suitable for long term archival storage of all your images, slides, CDs and other collectables, and has been tested safe by the Image Permanent Institute in Rochester, USA

 

Q. Are any of your Refills made from PVC?

A. Only the Peel and Stick, self adhesive page code RA104. Otherwise we only use polypropylene which is photo-friendly and acid-free to ensure long-term archival protection.

 

Q. What is wrong with PVC?

A. PVC (polyvinyl chloride) can, over time, react with your photos changing the colours, it cannot prevent your photos from fading and can even damage the surface of your prints. For a safe alternative use Arrowfile archival pages made from Polypropylene.

 

Q. Do all Ringbinder Albums come with Refill pages automatically?

A. No, we have provided several Special Kits especially within the CD-DVD Category where the albums contain several Refill pages to start you off using the Arrowfile System, but the Ringbinder Albums and Refills are designed to be purchased separately in order to fulfil individual requirements.

 

Q. Can I buy Albums without Refill pages?

A. Yes see the Binder Albums and Slip-in Albums Categories.

Q. What are Memo title inserts?

A. These are small pieces of card or paper which can be written on to help caption each photo and can be inserted into the pockets of the Refills for a permanent record of each photo without having to damage them by writing on the back.

 

Q. How many Refills can I fit in each Ringbinder Album?

A. This depends on the Album in question and how thick the contents of the Refills are. As a general rule of thumb, for thin items such as negs or photos you should be able to fit 60-70 Refills in a standard Arrowfile Album, Compact albums hold 20 or 40 refills depending on the thickness of the album and CD/DVD Albums hold 20 Refills.

 

Q. How do I index my prints?

A. You can purchase self-adhesive page numbers, spine labels, quick-find index sheets, CD index sheets, index tabs and dividers and many other useful items from the Indexing Category.

 

Q. Do you do Refills for every size of photo?

A. That is a difficult question to answer at the moment as with digital prints there are so many new sizes coming on to the market it is difficult to keep pace. For pocket -type refills the answer is we try, and are constantly commissioning new pages to meet the needs of our customers. If you have a particular size that you can’t find anywhere, please do not hesitate to contact us on info@arrowfile.com. However you can use the "Freesize" range of Refill pages which can accomodate any size or shape up to A4 size, and for larger sizes we do a range of Portfolio Refills up to A1 size.
