What's your preferred art storage? I have mine bagged and boarded, just like a comic. Except, that doesn't work with the old Valiant pages which are slightly larger and offsize from your typical blue line pages.

I was thinking about moving to portfolios. What's the best portfolio/size for Valiant art?

I'm sure Dan will weigh in on the issue.

Personally I use architectural drawers. Four piles fit well in each drawer. Not sure about portfolio size. I use a portfolio with pockets sized 42x30 cm when transporting art.

What bags and boards do you use? But I was thinking of bagging them too.

I currently use the 13x18 art portfolios they sell at Pat Catans and Michaels.

I use Bcw Art bags and boards. They are 11.5 x 17.5. I also put my posters in there. The old Valiant pages don't fit, though.

I frame everything. I used to own dozens and dozens of page but eventually sold off most of my pages and started being a lot more selective, buying less pages but only stuff i would want to frame, spending more page but less often. Plus with finite space, my office, (wife wont allow comic art in public areas of the house) i am self-policing myself

At home and work, I largely keep my comic interest separate. Although, I do rotate odd comic covers in my work office. The latest was this one:
