I'm sure this has been asked already but I couldn't find anything on it.
How do you store your ATCs? I just recently started making some and need a good place to keep them.

I don't have any, but could you make a pretty box? Or are you looking to display them somewhere?

So far all I thought of was those page protector things you keep baseball cards in.
I like the box idea!

I use the baseball card plastic thingy. I also use albums for 4x6 prints if I've got a bulky ATC.

Where did you find the baseball card thingy? I have looked at M's and W's with no luck.

I found some old shutters out in the garage and I hung them in my living room. I am going to hang my ATCs on them.

I have a couple different ways I store mine. I have the 7 gypsies tray that holds 12 cards, and I use it as part of my decorations. I make chronological/month specific cards, and I put one in each slot for each month. So the first slot has a New Year's card; the next slot has a Valentine's Day card, etc.

I also have a couple of 7 gypsies carousels. One I have sorted chronologically and the other one is by theme. They're pretty chock full so I'm thinking I need another one. (The one I've listed below is the photo one -- couldn't find a picture of the ATC one.)

I'm thinking I might look for an appropriate-sized box and alter it to hold some

I found mine at the dollar store, too. Years ago I would buy them at Toys R Us. My son would buy them for his Pokemon cards.

walMart has basball albums and "deck boxes".

You can use a nice recipe box....put the cards in sideways end to end instead of front to back.

i bought a wooden stand from youratcstore. it is like a hall tree for coats but about 18 inches tall. it comes with plastic sleeves with a hole on top to slide onto the hooks.

I got a little tin from 7 Gypsies a few years ago and keep mine in it.

I have couple of little tins too that I bought at my LSS. Can't remember who they're made by, although they could be 7Gypsies like Betty's.

I use babseball cards page protectors in a binder. The bigger ones in a decorated box.

Hmm maybe I am looking in the wrong spot for the baseball protectors at Walmart. I just looked by the office supplies.
I did find an old cigar box at home. I think I will alter that and keep some in there until I can find the page protectors.
Thanks for all the ideas!!

I found mine in WM in the office supplies near the plastic page protectors.

They're also with all the pokemon , etc cards. Sometimes that is up front by magazines, or back in toys.

You could probably find some at a collectibles shop too. Like a comic book store, or store that sells the pokeman cards.

Also, would any of the project life type protectors work? I'm not sure what size slot you need.
