    Archival Print Storage Boxes-Where to Buy

    Yipes!

    I went to Photographers Supply in San Francisco this afternoon to buy some archival storage boxes. They're closed, and have been since about April. What to do? Does anyone know where to buy archival supplies in or near San Francisco such as used to be available at Photo Supply? Or can you recommend something on line (although I don't like buying on line)?

    Thank you.

    Dick Blick has stuff on sale all the time--I use there metal edge boxes. For something nicer I use the Archival Methods Onyx boxes. John at shadesofpaper.com sells them with $9 flat rate shipping per order.

    No idea about local sources, but online there is always B&H in New York. You didn't mention the brand or type that youi were interested in; you can always do the old-fashioned thing by looking at the manufacturer of one that you like, calling them and asking who the nearest stocking distributor is, The distributor would then be able to tell you who--if anyone--stocks them in the area.

    My preference is for the Century clamshell boxes, but they are pricey enough that I wouldn't expect any strictly brick-and-mortar store to stock them. And even B&H, as big as they are, doesn't carry every type in every size.

    Archival Methods has several lines of storage boxes for all types of materials and a wide range of sizes.

    I've always had good results with their products and they always ship quickly.
    I know just enough to be dangerous !
