Picture pockets are a quick and easy way of displaying your photographs. You can have them on the back of the door, fridge or on a cupboard. The kit that I have is left over from my stint at university where my parents bought me some in order to display friends and family photos whilst away from home. I have the set now at work on the side of a filing cabinet. As they are magnetic, they can stuck in many places. If you want them in a door then you can also secure them on here, however using the magnets is the easier option.
==Price and availability==
I think my parents paid £7 for my set, however these days you can buy the picture pockets for £5.80 on Amazon.
The magnetic picture pockets measure 34 by 64cm and it holds 11 photographs that measure 6 x 4 inches. The eleven photos are displayed in two columns of four and then three across the bottom. The two columns are horizontal and the bottom row are vertical so you get a good mix. The Perspex pockets are clear and give your photos a nice sheen. They protect them from damage and create a lovely display for your to view your photos.
Digital photo frames are the big thing these days but when I went to uni they had not been invented, or if they had they were too expensive! This offered a great way of displaying a large number of photos in one go. I enjoyed having the photos up and even now not I have them at work, I enjoy seeing the photos in their physical form.
This is a really cool item to display your photos. The Perspex pouches are light which makes the display easy to hang or magnetise. You can also get the picture pockets kit in a larger size where you get 22 photographs displayed. I am happy with eleven and I find it the perfect size. If I was asked if I would recommend it, then I would say yes. I like being able to see printed photographs as well as view digital images as there is something much more special about a photo that is printed, it has more of a presence. I am pleased with how long the pockets have lasted, I have had this about six years now and it has lasted well. To clean the pockets, you just need to give them a wipe and maybe a little polish to keep them looking shiny and dust free.
Summary: cheers me up at work
