Really nice. It seemed a little on the expensive side, but I'm pleased with how sturdy the box is. I'll use it for watercolors and drawings that are finished but unframed.I don't have anything to compare it to as I haven't purchased this type of item before.
The right storage solution.
from Staten Island NY
I have been looking for storage boxes that fit 8.5 X 11 " for some time. I should of just went to Dick Blick from the beginning. The box is sturdy and fits all my art work perfectly. And because the box is black it means business. Thank you for a great product Dick Blick.
Great storage for paper or artwork
from Chicago, IL
I purchased two 22x30 and one 16x20 boxes. The good reviews I'd read ahead of buying were absolutely right. These boxes are well-made and extremely useful. I'd never had a good way to store large sheets of paper, or drawings before. Now I do. The clamshell opening is better than a regular box lid, too, for easy access. Only wished I'd bought more.

this purchase was quick and easy with prompt shipping
from Christiansburg, VA
They seem very solid and durable. I do not expect to have to replace them unless there should be a flood. I DO expect to need more when I fill them up. I thought storing smaller works in a larger box, such as in 2 piles side by side, would work, but that is not as satisfying as having 2 boxes the right size.
Excellent, protective and good looking storage
from New York, NY
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.
What a great bargain!

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.

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.
