Book Storage Kits
  • Application

    Gray Flat Storage Boxes, available in over ten sizes, are perfect for storing your valued books and albums. We offer three of these boxes as kits that come with two polyethylene bags in slightly different dimensions.

    Please note that these are non-drop front boxes and all four corners are fastened with metal edge clamps which provide rigidity and high stacking strength.

    Dimensions reflect the interior box size. When measuring your books to find the appropriate size box be sure to leave extra room for your hands to fit inside to remove the object.

    Tissue and other poly bag sizes can be ordered separately. See the Archival Boxes section of our website for a wide variety of box designs, sizes, and colors.

  • Features

    Here is a formula to calculate the size of a bag for book storage. First measure the Width, Length, and Depth (thickness) of your book.

    Add the Width + Depth of book + 2 inches

    Add the Length + Depth of book + 3 inches

    Example: Book is 7.25 x 9.25 x 1 inch

    7.25 (width) + 1 (depth) + 2 = 10.25 inches

    9.25 (length) + 1 (depth) + 3 = 13.25 inches

    The flat bag should be at least: 10-1/4 x 13-1/4 inches

    Larger is okay; you can fold in the extra material. Avoid using tape, it has a way of causing problems, and you are mainly protecting the book from dust and dirt.
