I would buy these products again

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.
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These are great to store historical documents and family history items in.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!
