The lip on the shelves makes it difficul t(almost impossible) to access paper easily -at the very least lip forces the storage of less paper per shelf. Lipless 12X12 are much easier to use.
These 8.5x11 paper trays appear to be well made and they stack easily. The lip on the sides hold the paper in well and are perfect for labeling. I would have preferred to have the style with no lip because the lip makes it is a little more difficult to remove the paper, but that is the only style offered in the 8.5x11. In the 12x12 you have the choice of both styles. That to me is a major flaw in the product line. I gave it 3 stars because of that choice limitation. Otherwise I would rate it a 5.
I had cabinets built and could not find trays to hold paper that weren't flimsy and too wide -- I needed to have access from the 8-1/2 width, not the long side. These are very sturdy, they fit the 8-1/2 wide paper without a lot of excess, wasted space on either side of the paper -- they are perfect! I have 20 more ordered!
Stackable paper trays make it so much easier to organize and see each tray of colored paper. They also make it easy to pull out paper of choice. Great item to have for your organized scraproom!! I am so pleased with these stackable paper trays!!
I have two sets of these in the 12x12 size AND the rolling base AND the drawer inserts - outstanding products!! I've had them now for almost 2 years and they have held up beautifully - VERY sturdy. I have my stack of 20 on the rolling base, which makes rearranging my work space easy and makes it super easy to put the whole stack right where I want it when I scrap. I highly recommend the product - it is well worth the money - takes up little space and provides a huge amount of storage in a small space.
This is perfect to store my 8.5x 11 papers. I ordered and got them in a couple of days. I was amazed they came so fast! The trays were packed to prevent any breakage, of course I checked for damage and there was none. I am very satisfied and I will be ordering more of these in the future.
I bought these trays because I could never find the color paper I needed. There are so many colors. Now all I have to do is go to the basic color I am looking for and pick the shade I want. I am now waiting for the 12 x 12 size for my larger sheets of paper. Great idea.
Couldn't personally give 5 star rating because I find the lipped trays are rather inconvenient, especially when all stacked. I like to reach my papers quickly and easily, and the lip gets in the way of easy removal for me.
Wish you offered these trays in the UNLIPPED as the 12 x 12 trays.
Otherwise nice, clear, and stack easily. I need at least 10 more of this size but will not be ordering until I can get some that are UNLIPPED. For crafters that don't mind the lipped trays, they are good quality and will serve their purpose nicely.
Perhaps Scrapbook.com could start sending Umbrella Crafts any/all of the ratings that are not 5 stars which are all less than 5 due to the same reason on all of those reviews. After all, the 8.5 x 11 and the 12 x 12 trays sell for the same price even though the smaller trays take less clear material to produce and without the lip would require even less material. This would definately save on the material production, increase their prophet, and I am sure would increase the sales of this product. When production costs can be lowerd on such a popular and hard to find item such as this could mean an increase in sales/prophet for both Umbrella Crafts and Scrapbook.com, it would make good business sense to do so. I state this opinion with respect, and as a retired business owner myself.
Nice but not what I need. I really wanted the same as the 12x12 with No lip. I wish I had ordered two of the other. I would have returned it but it didn't come with an invoice slip or return slip. That is $60.00 just taking up space. If it's still possible to exchange it, I would appreciate an email as how to do it My other products were fine. How we can make the exchange.

I have these and I really need to order another set. I have a 4 cube cubby (ordered from JCP) that goes with my office furniture and 5 of each fit in a cube section perfectly... and goes great with my office furniture. Helps me at least look like Im somewhat organized! I usually have my favorite papers at the moment stuck in them.
For a small space and just doing handmade cards, they are perfect. Do not need 12 x 12 trays, so the 8.5 x 11 fit where I want them and they hold several colors of paper in one tray. They are very sturdy and stand alone great.
This is the best way to organize your cardstock or paper! I have sorted mine out by color and it gives me quick access to whatever I need. I highly recommend these stackable paper trays! Can't wait to order a set of 12x12!
I am still Praying Display Dynamics will bring out a Lipless version of the 8.5 x 11 My lipless 12x12 set is awesome
and the more my MD affects my hands the more I like the Lipless version of these Trays
The quality of the stackable paper trays is above all others. They are definitely sturdy and won't chip or crack like the lesser made ones. Good quality means long lasting trays. Super good organization.
Scrapbook.com is one of the only places selling this product. I have the 12x12 as well and find this item to be a scrapbooking essential. It comes well packaged and easy to assemble. Looks great.
I absolutely love this product. I already owned the 12x 12 trays, but only saw this size recently & had to have ASAP! You can see your paper & easy access. Don't hesitate, get your's today!
The products came extremely well packed. Bought the base on rollers and all I had to do was insert the wheels. The trays were extremely easy to stack. This is an excellent product.
I love the "no lip" paper trays. I wished the 8.5x11 came with "no lip." I have a handicap and I couldn't get the paper out so had to givei the 8.5x11 paper trays away.
