Title: PHOTO HOLDER FOR PHOTO ALBUMS
Abstract:
A photo holder (42) is described which can be smoothly applied to a page in a photo album (40). The photo holder (42) has a peripheral border (43) that nests inside the opening (44) of a retainer frame (46) while a peripheral holding edge (52) fits beneath the frame (46). In one embodiment the photo holder is formed of a photo mat (54) that is mounted on a backup sheet (58). The backup sheet (58) is shaped and sized to extend past the photo mat (54) to form the peripheral holding edge (52) with angled sides (62) that converge at a corner (64) to form the protruding region. The photo mat (54) is sized to nest inside the retainer frame (46). Various embodiments are shown and described including a photo holder with sides so cut that these form corners to facilitate insertion below the edge of the retainer frame.
