With glassine used to protect from dust collecting, of course, I'm thinking this could be a decent not-so-temporary-but-not-forever solution to my search for a new flat file.

Any thoughts/recommendations/experiences?

PS: Since I'm asking for help and haven't donated for a while, I figured I'd do so. However, I'm getting an error 404 code when clicking the donate link... So any info on how to send these fools cash is also appreciated 8)

At $127 per tray it seems way more expensive than a portfolio or even a used flat file.

You do get 2 trays per order, so $254 would be my total cost. Just having a terrible time tracking down a decent flat file these days.

If you get them, buy them on Jet.com. $205 shipped for 2 sets after code TRIPLE15.

more expensive option ...but it's a lot closer to a "forever" home for your prints.
30"x40", slide it under a bed and problem solved.

Thanks again for the link. Just ordered my second one, and I'm all set for storage now for a long time. Feels good getting everything back in a safe home after a move to a new place and losing the old flat file.

A little late, looks like you went with something else. But incase others come looking I would just like to say that I have used these and I do not recommend them for anything you consider valuable. Posters are exposed and vulnerable at all times, I ditched them after a week.
