Large sheets of paper
I’ve worked with several clients over the years who adore paper and who use it in their craft – photography, architecture, design, etc. The problem is that the paper sizes don’t fit a standard 8″x11″ or legal size file cabinet. Even scrapbookers have developed special storage containers for their 12″x12″ sheets of paper.
What’s a paper-lover to do?
Flat files are a great solution. Here are some options to consider based on your budget, the paper-size you’re storing, and how much space you have.
Steel and wood flat file cabinets
At one point in my search, I even discovered someone who’d make a twin bed frame with two large sliding drawers underneath for paper storage.
I love these cardboard drawers that double as carrying cases.
And the simplest option (below) can be stored flat as well as upright.
If you wanted to do it yourself, you could recycle large cardboard boxes and design your own to custom-fit your paper.
This problem is so common, “large paper storage” is one of the most frequently Googled searches that lead people to my site. Sometimes, making a list of ideas you could try (a technique I describe in one of my ebooks) helps you come up with new solutions.
