Well, the options are only limited by space. I have wire shelving units I purchased from a LSS going out of business. There are hanging folder options, or cube with paper divider options. I know that there are a few members here that use the "pizza box"method, of unused pizza boxes with labels on them. Just take a run through the scrap-room galleries and I am sure you will find an abundance of ides.
I use the large file cabinets especially designed for 12X12 paper. Mine are the white laminate ones (I have 3-2 drawer units) - they are heavy and very well made and hold a LOT of paper. I keep cardstock and patterned paper both in them divided by color (CS) and manufacturer (pattern paper). I keep the pattern paper in the free standing vertical storage inside the drawer that way I can just take one out to browse for what I want. This way I don't worry about my papers fading from light or getting dusty!
I just bought new storage for my paper. I got 3 of the 5-shelf JetMax cubes. They are stackable, and now I have 15 shelves for my paper. I still keep my patterned paper in Cropperhopper file folders, but this works great for my solid cardstock.
I store my paper in binders. The 12x12 papers are in a 3ring binder scrapbook. I love it, but it's heavy. I am sure they are 300+ sheets in each binder. I have a photo in my gallery if the one I tried to add does not show up. I am a vertical storage girl so this really works for me. I love it because I can keep collections and similar papers together, plus they are all in page protectors so my papers don't get messed up. I have them organized by color with my patterned papers first, then cardstock. I am going to keep my papers in the page protectors, but I am thinking of getting a vertical storage box for them because my binders are very heavy. I wish I had the space to put them on their own table. I imagine it would be like having a scraprack that had papers in it. My 8x11 and 8x8 papers are in regular binders. Good luck because I am picky about my paper and it took me a while to find a system that worked for me, but it was worth it. Link
i use the jetmax cubes...you can get at michaels and hobby lobby..maybe other stores. they are about $20 each, but i alway use a coupon or wait til they are on sale 40 to 50% off. i love mine! at first i had them with the shelves going horizonally, but changed recently to vertical. i was not sure i like them that way, cause i had carpal tunnel surgery last summer, and still have some problems and it was hard to get the paper out. then i had the idea to cut some cropper hopper plastic dividers to fit the width of each section, then folded the end up and i slide the long piece under the papers then slide into the section. so when i need to pull them out, i just pull the whole section out by pulling the folded part up. my pics don't show that cause i came up with that idea later. but i really do like it! scraproom redo By Randasue
I like having my paper vertical. Much easier to look for a specific pp that way. Cropper Hopper sells great holders. Or you can make your own from medium flat rate shipping boxes from the post office
That is exactly what I have! I also am using the cropper hopper boxes the storage unit came in. For my paper stacks I have crate that is a little bit larger than a milk crate. For my 8x11 paper I have a milk crate.
