Excellent, protective and good looking storage
from New York, NY
Comments about Blick Metal Edge Archival Clamshell Boxes:
Great way to protect and store artwork of all kinds. I have several of these including 1 of the plastic ones without the metal edges and with velcro closure sold by Dick Blick. I like the velcro closure for keeping these closed but these boxes, with the metal edges at the bottom, last better. So I bought, also from Dick Blick, velcro that I can cut down and place on these sturdy cardboard boxes. Not only do they protect artwork well, being both acid free on the inside, but they look good. I keep some in my living room and they are unobtrusive and yet, I have my materials handy in an apartment. I highly recommend these.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

What a great bargain!
By Dr. Lowbrow
from Long Beach, CA
I bought a few of these to store paper. I was so impressed with their build quality, especially for the price. I'd say they were worth 3x - 4x what I paid.
Classy Black Portfolio

I love the matte black. It is pretty sturdy. I am going to use it to store my best illustrations and sketches. I'm happy I bought three. I would order more.
Archival Clamshell Boxes
from Roscoe NY
These are great to store historical documents and family history items in. Great way to keep them safe.
Great scapbooking archive!
from Wilmington, nc
These boxes are a great scapbooking alternative. The are sturdy, easy to stack and hold a good amount of items, just be sure to order a slightly bigger size than what u plan to store. Ex if you are storing 9 x 12 items, get 11x14 size.
Affordable and safe storage for my watercolors & papers
from Nevada City, CA
I gave away my very funky wooden flat files and got six of these boxes instead. I've got four stacked with watercolor papers and paintings (heaviest one on the bottom, the others are all relatively light) and now I can relax, knowing that my work is being archivally protected.
from Portland, OR
Wow! Could not believe how fast my order arrived. Packed to ensure there was no damage. Quality is excellent. Service unsurpassed. I was running perilously close to a deadline and had resigned myself to accepting that I probably would not have boxes for my photo series, but they arrived in a matter of days. Wowser, wowser, wowser!

Too small for large sheets of watercolor paper
from Oklahoma City, Ok
Pros - Very nice sturdy boxes that should hold up well over time. I bought two of these (22" x 30") to store art papers in. Sheets of Rives BFK, Stonehenge, Mi-Teintes and Strathmore Bristol Vellum 3ply papers all fit.Cons - The main reason I bought these boxes was to store and protect full sheets of Arches 300# watercolor paper. Unfortunately, the box is too small and will not close with the paper in it. The deckled edges keep the box from closing. I am very disappointed.
Merchant response: We're sorry that these boxes won't work for the use you intended. The natural deckle on the Arches sheets can make them nearly 22 ½" wide in some places. One of our Customer Care Agents will in touch via email to see how we can further assist you with this.
from Dallas, TX
Excellent storage medium for matted paintings. I have multiple sizes for different size paintings. Very sturdy and well made. I only wish that they had clasps/closures, and handles for transport.
Second Order of these great boxes.
from Florida Panhandle
Had ordered the larger boxes to use for art storage. Was so impressed that I ordered a smaller size to separate and organize small works, too. Sturdy and neat. Making our art area look much better organized.
