I held off getting one of these storage cases for about a year after purchasing my Slice. I thought my way of storing the image fold-outs and cards was sufficient because I don't travel to crops with my machine and accessories. I also didn't to spend the money.
After loosing two fold-outs and misplacing numerous cards (because they're so small and not easily seen during clean up --yep, I think I tossed the fold-outs into the trash with scraps) I gave the case a try.
Why did I wait so long? This system is perfect for storing and organizing because the fold-outs slip in and out of their sleeves with ease, and the cards fit snuggly into their sections. It's easy to alphabetize the sets you own. Each page (front and back) is easy to flip through and the case has a zipper closure for added safety. Don't wait as long as I did if you wonder about the effectiveness of your storage system for Slice cards and fold outs. It's worth the investment and you'll be so happy with this well-made storage option.
I used to keep all my cards in a drawer with the cards and booklets all floating around. I was researching the generic media storage solutions at office supply stores when my sister bought me this little beauty for Christmas! I love that it keeps everything together and looks so cute on my table. One thing I do is print up a copy of the design shapes index card for each card I own (I just print it from WhySlice.com). Then I glue the card onto an 8.5X11 reference sheet I keep in a page protector. That way I can scan through all the images I have in my Slice library without having to pull out all the little booklets. I actually never use the booklets since doing this.
I found that my cards were getting lost and I was having way too much trouble finding the books. With this case, that's a thing of the past. The cards and booklets are well protected and it's so much easier to find what I want. I highly recommend this for everyone who has the Slice.
This storage case is great. Before I got it, my design cards and guides were floating around in a drawer, and I had to sort through them to find what I was looking for. Now it's super easy to just pull out the guide and go "yep, this is the one I need". Very worthwhile purchase.
This little binder is great for storing all of your design cards and the little booklets that come with it. It is so easy to just flip through it and find the design card that you want. It fits neatly in the side pockets of the storage bag also. Great organization.
