These are really good for mounting photos in an album. I've gone through 4 rolls so far, and I've learned alot so far.

Tips:
1. Where it says "tear here", just remove the whole flap on the bottom of the box. If you only tear off the portion it tells you to, corners will sometimes catch & peel off as you're trying to pull the strip out further. It's better to remove the whole flap so that it's exiting the box at more of a natural angle, preventing corner from getting caught on the way out.

2. If the photo & backing is going to be protected by a layer of plastic (like most albums), then you can save yourself time, frustration, and money by only doing 2 corners. I like to get albums with 4x6 slips, attach photos smaller than that to a 4x6 index card, and then slide it in. Doing 2 corners that are diagonal to one another means the photo stays still stays put, and it's alot easier to slip it in/out repeatedly in the future if you ever need to for any reason.

3. Bend the strip so that it's concave when you go to slip the photo into it. If bending it doesn't make the pocket open for you to slide your photo in, then don't try to force the photo. Take your fingernail, corner of a thin card, etc to force the pocket open first, then try again with the photo. Sometimes the two sides to the pocket are stuck together (much like window clings), and if you don't get it open first, trying to slide/force your photo's corner in will ruin the corner of the photo.

4. For older, more delicate, or smaller photos, leave a small amount of space in each corner to make it easier to remove/re-insert the photo (if you ever need to). The smaller the photo, the harder it is to minimally bend it to slip it back in to the corners if yo had to remove it for some reason. The older & more fragle it is, the less time you'll want to spend abusing it by handling it or bending it when removing/re-inserting.

Pro's:
1. Acid free
2. Clear, so it doesn't cover up parts of the photo
3. Reasonably easy to use dispenser
4. Adhere's extremely well to every surface

Con's:
1. Dispenser needs additional "modification" to work well
2. Sometimes two corners will be stuck together by a thin strip
3. Adhere's so well that if you place it wrong, good luck lifting it back off to adjust its position
4. Sometimes the pockets are stuck closed, so it's not as easy as "just slide photo in & lift off". I've had several I had to struggle to open just so I could slide the photo's corner in. It's usually the first portion of the roll that's like that (sometimes as much as the first quarter of the roll or so).

Giving these a 3 seemed appropriate.

I am on photo album #36 for my now 11 yr old daughter. I have been using various brands of photo corners as I have done albums through the yrs since 1999. I started w/blk paper corners you have to lick & stick, & then moved to the clear adhesive kind, which are easier & don't show as you flip through. They have held up well, & are reasonably priced.

These are basically as advertised/described- clear photo corners designed for invisibly mounting photos on paper. I actually purchased them to mount small illustrations and paintings in a presentation binder- I wanted a way to center the artwork on each page without applying anything to the drawing/watercolor itself. I wanted the artwork to stay put but also have the ability to remove it when necessary.

These photo corners are mostly invisible when applied correctly, but getting them applied is kind of a pain. Because the corners are so small, the photos/paper don't stay anchored in very securely. And because of the design of the corners, not every corner fits "squarely" so from time to time you'll get one corner that wants to sit askew.

I was a little concerned about the application- I sort of assumed that the photo corners would just be floating around in the box. But they are actually on a long roll of wax paper backing, so application is easy- just insert the corner of the photo into the photo corner and lift off the backing. If done right, you can just press the photo onto the page you want it adhered on, and presto! - it's stuck. But the corners like to fall off as you go around each corner, which is kind of a pain.

All in all, they do the job. But when they run out, I'm going to try another brand.

Would be great except pockets aren't deep enough to keep pictures in securely when turning albumn pages. They are not as deep as old traditional black photo corners. Wish this could be fixed because I like the idea of the corners being clear and not taking away from the picture they are holding.

There is no reason not to buy these. They are designed very efficiently - they do their job of securing the photos on paper perfectly while having a very minimalistic and non-intrusive design. They stick without issue but also come off easily.

No complaints - they do exactly what they say they do - stick to stuff and hold photos.

This product came in handy, when I received an old suitcase full of old family photos. Price was extremely fair.

These photo corners aren't as easy to use as the old style. You have to put the corner of your photo into the clear photo corner to remove it from the plastic tape it's attached to. If the photo corner touches anything, it comes off of the photo and sticks to whatever it touched. I'm trying to transfer photos from a very old, falling apart photo album to a new album and these photo corners are making the transfer slow going.

This product did not work as described. Sometimes the tabs would not detach from the roll. other times two would come off at the same time. by the time i got to the fourth corner of the photo, one would inevitably have fallen off. May be ok for doing the occasional photo album but it was a pain using these to mount pictures on mats. Double sided, acid free tape worked much better and faster for me.

it was okay over all. some corners did not stay put while they were on the corners of the pictures i was trying to attach.
