Linda... I'm envious. I want some flat file cabinets. Large skinny cartons
is what I'm using. But I can't put too much in each because they get very
heavy very quickly. Around 98% of the posters are mine, so I want to be
able to move them out easily if I have to. I use a big book rack for
smaller posters and large calendars.
Thanksfor the category ideas.

> a system that works for me. i was able to scrounge a couple flat file
cabinets and now have about 10 drawers worth. (i used to use large
cartons with poster board dividers but they had to be replaced every
couple yrs because the old shorewoods are so heavy.) i have "sets" like
the Take 5s, Discover Art, and Portfolio sets each in their own drawer.
i put a list of the prints in each set on top of the pile in each
drawer. Then i have a drawer for my calendar pictures and those small
taaschen posters, and another drawer for my personal collection of
large posters. The rest of the schools miscellany of prints are then
divided into the following categories: landscape, portraits and people,
animals, still life, non-objective. i didn't want to mix up my personal
things with the school's things in the event that i am transferred to
another building. this hasn't happened in 5 years but with 22
elementaries it's always a possibility. anyway, my system is organized
enough that i can usually remember which category a particular print is
in and put my hands on it fairly quickly.
