Shallow storage boxes?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys. I've been searching for a while for a storage solution for flat things I want to keep flat (maps, paperwork, etc)

 

Ideally I would use a flat file blueprint cabinet but that is too heavy for where I live.

Are there any very shallow storage options out there? Seems like there isn't anything very shallow as far as plastic containers go (which would be ideal)

 

Appreciate any input. Thanks!

How big are your paper items. Are they standard that theyd fit in a standard file folder?


Wanted: Missouri Medals

 

I am always in search of Missouri Medals and Items. This could be anything from WW1, WW2, Prisoners of War, Ephemera, or anything pertaining to Missourians.

 

I thank you for your time and consideration.

Archival Folio Boxes? I've got a couple for my paper ephemera, rather pleased with them.

The archival storage boxes are what they use at the Golden Gate National Recreation Area's archive. They can be found in sizes large enough for newspaper storage.


Looking for items related to the Ninth Coast Artillery District and 6th Coast Artillery Regment

I was thinking you could also try those rigid cardboard mailers. I think they make them as large as 13"x18". Cheap to buy and barely take up any space. But then I'm not sure they make them acid-free...

 

For my original documents, I use clear archival sleeve protectors and put them in a 3 ring binder. I think they make rigid ones too.
