    What is the best way to store posters that are not being used at any given time. I have my shelving set up so that I have a small space to slide the posters in for storage and this is not working! Is there a way to store them other than the cardboard boxes for posters? I'd rather avoid that if I can.

    Buy two pieces of that heavy, styrofoamy poster board. With the boards together, punch two or three holes in three sides--the holes need to line up with each other. Then buy a bunch of those little rings and run them through the holes. You'll end up with a solid "envelope" for your posters.

    You can also make an envelope out of two pieces of regular poster board. I laminated mine to make them sturdier and made several to sort my posters/bulletin board items. They can be stapled or taped together with the clear packing tape.

    I am shipping a LOT of posters back from the conference for myself. I bought a LARGE shipping tube and am rolling them up. THIS is a tube I'll keep for years.

    A permanent solution along the lines of a shipping tube might be a length of PVC piping found at Home Depot/Lowes/Menard's.
