so, where do you guys buy your print storage supplies? i mean, mylar sleeves (24x36), backing boards and storage boxes or portfolios. 24x36 seems to be a ridiculously hard size to find. What brands etc.... links are greatly appreciated...

I bought Itoya image envelopes for my 24x18, i love those and they work great, but they don't have anything for 36x24.

So I did the bags unlimited ones everyone talks about and man, it was pricey. 10x 36x24 sleeves & 10x backing cost me $185. Hope it's worth it. If anyone in the bay area wants to split these, hit me up. I don't think I need this many for now.

I just paid $113.89 for the following at jerry's artarama:

43089 Lineco See-Thru Mounting Strips 60 Pack 1 @ $12.92
86142 Krystal Seal Art and Photo Bags 25-Pack 32x40" 1 @ $54.99
79611 Viewpoint Acid-Free Foam Backing 5-Pack 30×40" - 1/8" Thick - White 2 @ $22.99

I googled and found a promo code to use for free shipping. I went with the larger size sleeves boards, but they don't carry 24 x 36. The only thing I'm unsure about is the 1/8" board in such a large size. I'll receive these Monday...we'll see how it goes. If nothing else, I can glue two pieces together to make 1/4" (sturdier). I also hope to be able to mount 2 small (odd sized) prints side-by-side on these. ... o-bags.htm ... acking.htm

The promo code I used was assumption is that this expired, yesterday. Maybe try JUNEBDAY? ;)
