Archival Solution of the Week:
CD/DVD Storage Kits
Organizing and storing CDs / DVDs / DVD-Rs can be a challenge, especially when you NEED to find that critical disk FAST!
To remedy this situation, Archival Methods has created our exclusive CD/DVD Storage Kits to allow you to easily (and logically!) organize your collection for both safe archival storage and quick retrieval.
In addition, by purchasing the museum-quality products listed below together as a kit, you’ll save 15% off the price of each item if purchased separately!
Extraordinarily versatile, our CD/DVD Storage Kits will allow you to store both CD/DVD jewel cases AND disks in sleeves (and one version of the kit comes with sleeves!).
Each of the kit’s three acid-free caddies will hold 9 CD/DVDs in standard jewel cases, or up to 40 CD/DVDs in sleeves. This allows the complete kit to hold between 27 and 120 CD/DVDs, depending on how they are housed.
CD / DVD Storage Kit: What’s Included
Archival Methods offers TWO types of CD/DVD Storage Kits. While both include an acid-free Black Short Top Box and CD/DVD caddies, one kit also includes a package of fifty archival CD/DVD Storage Sleeves at a 15% savings (see descriptions below).
• Black Short Top Box
The archival Black Short Top Box that comes with each kit is made of textured black paper laminated onto an acid-free / lignin-free black core (please click here to see our fully illustrated blog that explains everything you need to know about “acid-free” materials).
The color dyes are light-fast and will not fade (please click here to see our fully illustrated blog on Light Damage: Protecting Your Collections from Harm), and are non-bleeding should your box inadvertently come into contact with moisture.
As with all of our Metal Edge Boxes, the metal corner clamps are anti-corrosion treated with a black polyester coating with a wax-free polyester finish on the blind side. These tough, workhorse clamps provide both rigidity and high stacking strength, so you can rest assured that your important CDs and DVDs are ALWAYS safe and secure!
• Three CD/DVD Caddies
Each caddy is made of tan acid-free board, and has a top lip that will allow you to include either written or printed label organizational and filing info. Each caddy will hold 9 CDs/DVDs in jewel cases, or up to 40 CDs/DVDs in sleeves.
DVDs in individual two-sided archival CD/DVD Storage Sleeves – a quick and easy solution for inexpensive
storage that comes with one of the kits. This DVD? Why its Scorsese’s award-winning 4-hour rockumentary on
the band Crumble Dust and Goo. It stars Liam Neeson, Meryl Streep, Kenneth Branagh, Ben Kingsley, Al Pacino,
Katherine Hepburn, Gregory Peck, John Wayne, and William Shatner (as “Uncle Kevin”).

• Package of Fifty CD/DVD Sleeves with Black Liner
Available as an option with one of our two CD/DVD Storage Kits, these CD/DVD Storage Sleeves are significantly less bulky than jewel cases, allowing you to store up to 120 sleeved disks per kit.
These inert polypropylene sleeves have a clear front and feature an interior non-woven divider and will hold two discs per sleeve. The black non-woven, static-resistant fabric on the back of each sleeve is a clean-room material that will not shed or form lint. Any dirt that inadvertently enters the sleeve will fall through the fabric and become trapped away from the disc where it cannot scratch the play surface.
Don’t risk damage to—or the loss of!—your important CDs and DVDs! Organize them with the versatile Archival Methods’ CD/DVD Storage Kit that’s right for you. Each will give you years of elegant, practical service while also providing you with the peace-of-mind that your materials are safely (and archivally!) protected!
