I was recent asked about some of my storage solutions for my studio. Although I am in the middle of revamping several of my own storage solutions and studio design, I’ll share a few of my storage solutions.
I don’t have a good storage solution for my cardstock. It’s because of the way that my current cabinets are designed. However, based on this; the way I store my cardstock works well.
I picked up these file boxes at Wal-Mart or Staples. I currently use three of them to hold my cardstock. I have each color placed in a file folder and labeled with an actual sample of the paper. I prefer to do it this way so that I can see the actual color – there is no guessing!
I also have two color families per box. The third box is where I house my In-Colors and specialty paper (such as watercolor paper, glossy paper, vellum). On the outside of the box I just printed out a quick list in order of my paper and slapped it on the front. It gives me a quick reference to see what is in each box or for my customers to easily access paper if needed.
