Affordable and safe storage for my watercolors & papers
By Mrs Sam
Comments about Blick Metal Edge Archival Clamshell Boxes:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.

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.
High quality! I will order more in the future.

I used them to store my children's (who are now in their 40's) artwork from elementary school. They will be able to share them with their grandchildren some day!
Great storage boxes
from Roscoe NY
Strong and durable. Have used them for years. Great archival storage for all papers.
BLICK TO THE RESCUE
I had to locate presentation boxes for two custom framed awards. Due to the nonstandard size of the frames, I really did not think I could find a box that was even close to the size and height of my awards. Blick to the rescue; not only did you have a high quality clam style box, the boxes were in stock and I even had my choice of grey or black. Thank you for your great service, I received my order quickly.
perfect for my needs
I use these to store my extensive collection of 18x24 screen prints.
