Poll: How does everyone store their comics?

#1 Posted by Punchinello (148 posts) - - Show Bio

Sleeves & boards? Ring binders? Clamshell cases? Nothing?

I store my comics in convention clamshell cases, and plastic sleeves + acid free boards in plastic boxes in a cupboard that's just for them.

I'm looking into storing all of my comics in convention/clamshell/etc cases, and interested to hear what others do for storage =)

I throw mine on the floor. I have a carpet of thousands of books, seriously, even collectible ones get destroyed.

good ones in plastic sleeves in a paper box. Really good ones in hard plastic. Not so goods ones in the bathroom lol

#9 Posted by Punchinello (148 posts) - - Show Bio

I pretty much go by exactly what you do, Hawk =)

Good ones in plastic mylar/pro sleeves; the collectible/awesome ones in the Mill Case cases, and the every day/reader's/shite ones in.. nothing, actually!

I don't really do anything special. I keep my comics in the plastic sleeves they come in and store them in order in a wooden box under my bed.
I actually read my comics so I don't want them to be too hard to get to when I want them.

#27 Posted by The Jeff (289 posts) - - Show Bio

I board and bag mine, keep them in standard long boxes in my bedroom. I have 7 boxes and hope to have over 10 by the end of the year.

Bag-Board-Box is a good way to go.  Modern paper certainly preserves better than the old newsprint.

They are book, and they are honest works of art, so I try to preserve them as such.

Well, there's a waste of $$$.

I do the bag-board-box thing.

LOL that made me seriously laugh out loud, and scared my girlfriend.
#33 Posted by Count_ZeroOR (95 posts) - - Show Bio

Bagged, boarded, and in short-boxes in the closet - though I should probably find a better storage place for my comics... and I probably should sort them again (or maybe move to long-boxes).

#34 Posted by G Bird (1278 posts) - - Show Bio

Where does everybody get short boxes, long boxes, bags, and boards? Is there like comic supply stores or something?

#35 Posted by Braxxis7 (248 posts) - - Show Bio

in boards sleeves and boxes in my closets
#36 Posted by Theodore (3445 posts) - - Show Bio

a few are in sleeves, if they came that way, they are stack up in a milk crate.

#37 Posted by -Eclipse- (7360 posts) - - Show Bio

I have these big folder/ring binder thingies. Two big blue ones, and three slightly smaller ones, red, green and black. I used to fit all my comics in there, but now I've got too many, lol 
 
Now I keep some of the older ones I don't read much stuffed into a big box under my bed... xP 
 
My folders, however, are colour-coded. Big blue ones are old Spider-man, red one is recent Spider-man. Green one is Pet Avengers (formerly Hulk and Immortal Iron Fist) and Black is Batman AND Batman and Robin, lol
