I posted this on another forum and thought I would ask here as well.....I have always used the horizontal method when storing my 12x12 paper because I was always afraid of the paper bowing or warping in the middle from standing up on it's side.. how is everyone else doing this and what do they like the best? My husband built me cubes that I put my paper in... I love them but I just don't think I am satisfied..... TIA!

Yep, mine are horizontal as well. I use 12x12 Sterilite drawers to hold mine.

I think that it depends on how much room you have for storage. I dont have scraproom I just have a little closet to storage all my pp and products soo, the only thing I can use so far is Cropper Hopper and... I loooove it!!!

I have a ton of paper and there is just no way I have the space to store it horizontally. I use the Cropper Hopper vertical paper storage holders.

i use the Cropper Hopper vertical storage too. i keep quite a bit of cs in there tho so as long as it's fairly full, i havent had a problem with it warping.

i keep my pp (basic grey, k&co etc) packs or sets horizontally on shelves in a storage cube. then i also have hanging 12x12 file folders that i got a million years ago in a rack, so they are vertical too. again, there are enough papers that they kind of keep themselves straight.

Same here, but I also store some kits horizontal.
I am a paper freak.

Horizontal. I don't like the idea of bowing paper, or crinkled or bent edges.

I was thinking the same thing. Actually, I've emptied all the DCWV papers from the rolling cart, so it's more than half empty. I do NEED more paper.

I do mine vertically now. I did store it horizontally for a long time but it was just too hard to lift the stacks off of the shelf to find what I wanted (I have bad wrists, which makes lifting things difficult sometimes).

I got some of the Cropper Hopper storage things and I love them. I also cut up my old "club scrap pizza boxes" and created my own vertical storage containers (like magazine holders). I used smaller boxes that my photo paper came in for making my 8.5 x 11 holders.

This system works so much better for me because now I don't have to lift anything, I can just finger through the edges to see the paper. And nothing gets bent/warped or wrinkled.

Horizontal. I have 12x12 stacking Paper Trays that sit on top of a dresser. The dresser drawers hold ribbons, stamps and ink, punches, and other craft stuff like wrapping paper.

I have them vertical in the Cropper Hopper s......as much as I like the horizontal storage, it does take up alot more room and the containers are much more expensive. I've had no problems with warping or bent edges. I use the dividers which help support the pp. My cardstock is sturdy enough to prevent this as well.

I'm a vertical paper storage fan. I use the Cropper Hopper vertical system for loose paper and cardstock I've had no problems. When the paper is stored vertically it is easier to select the piece you want to use. The stacks I store horizontally.
