Default Storage of envelopes

Hello All! I hope you have a most excellent day today.

As I am reorganizing the basement, one of the yet to figure out items, is envelopes. I have 2-3 packs of the SU medium envelopes in WW, VV, Kraft and clear and then a more random group of different size and color envelopes, mostly envelopes bought for a single project, now waiting for me to figure out how to use the remaining odd sized or colored envelopes. So how do you store your envelopes? For now, I have them in a plastic box, which I hope will protect them from water or humidity. But, it would be nice if they were in a "thing", out and available for use. I don't think any of the Stamp N Storage units will work for this. Any ideas?


Thank you from a stamper/collector in Bellevue, NE.

I keep my envelopes in zip loc bags depending on their sizes. Then I put those bags into a pretty wicker basket. I found a few wicker storage items at the thrift store that are long and low. Not high or tall. That way I can flip through them and see the colors and sizes easily.

Keep mine in the large clear boxes SU sells to store wooden stamps. Lined up on a shelf I can see all my colors!

I keep large ones in a file rack along with various sizes of paper and pads. Envelopes for A2 cards are in a nail polish organizer that I bought for inks but realized I couldn't use it for them. Packs to replenish are behind it.




ETA NAIL POLISH organizer, not lipstick! Corrected.

Tried to post two pictures at once but wouldn't take. Here's a side view and a link to the one I got: https://www.containerstore.com/s/40-...acrylic%20tier

Sorry about the bad photos. Was rushing and the light wasn't on.

I have a bunch of these stacked on top of each other for other envelopes and some paper, pads, labels, etc. They were hard to find at the time since there are many that orient the long way but I wanted the opening to be on the short side, if that makes sense. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I store mine 3 ways lol! my white, cream and kraft ones are stored either on my Michaels cart or in one of my drawers in the Jennifer McGuire style (I don't have a picture of this one) and my colour envelopes are stored in clear bins.

I store mine in a basket with smallest ones in front then going larger to the back. I can easily see all the colors and it's organized by size.

I store most of my envelopes in an ArtBin tote with hinged lid and with dividers. It holds all my regularly used sizes of envelopes (6x6 or smaller). I store all my larger envelopes in a clear shoe box. I also have a separate hinged tote to hold all my 6x6 (or smaller) sheets of decorative paper (not all my 12x12 is cut up) but this holds it nice and keeps it from getting damaged.
