I have a :question: for those of you(like myself) who have way too many car magazines laying around. Where do you store them all :question: I want to put mine on my bookshelf, but cannot find anything that will hold them up without them bending and creasing. I have gone to my local Wal-mart and bought plastic containers to store them in my closet. Are there any other suggestions :question:

Two suggestions,
They make binders to hold Magazines, sometimes the binders even have the name of the magazine on the binding (I know you can get them for R&T and Car & Driver). Second suggestion is to put them into a plastic folder holder type thingy (not sure what they are called or how to describe it). I think you see these at office stores, they are plastic would hold about 6-12 issues per bin. They stand upright, they are not solid plastic but have holes about the size of golf balls all over it. Looking at it from the side the shape you would see is this. Left side about 8" tall right side 4" tall (these are parallel, then the bottom is perpendicular to both these sides 9" in width there is no top but the line would be from the top of the 8" side to the top of the 4" side. Geezz, did I confuse you enough?:eek: I was hoping too :D

Don't put magazines in plastic covers since there is not enough air supply. Keep them in a dark environment if possible again for paper conditions. I At the moment I have my magzines on bookshelves, but if you put them there too long, they might taken the form of the lot how they are standing.

So the plastic containers is a good options, but damage throught the wholes in the side are possible when putting them in or taking them out.

As for Cavallinos (or any other knitted (??) magazine) put them either way so that the the pile 'evens'.

Ultimately I probably prefer a filecloset but then you need room for it.

Andrew,

I thought about something similar to what you're describing.I will look into the R&T option....


Niels,

For example, my Forza issues come in plastic already. I keep them in their respective sleeves and store them in my 'closet'. Will the plastic damage them that way????

In the long term it will. I am not sure the plastic Forza is sending it in, but paper needs to breath. If it does not get enough air the ageing process will be faster. Too many light will cause yellow pages sooner. In the end it al will dissapear I guess, but these two factors would increase or decrease the ageing process. I will never put it into plastic. However, the articles I cut out of magazines are stored in plastic, due to accessibility (I do not like to punch wholes in the pages!) and future reference.

Most of my mags are stacked on top of each other on shellfes (spelling???)
and for my Forza's i have special boxes that i bought from a british store who had them made specially for Forza mag (it stands in the box :wink: )
He also had them made for Cavallino and a japanese mag

I know the boxes, but I rather spend my money on the magazines themselves. The original Cavallino boxes are retailing here for somewhere around 20 Euro and you need at least 10-15 of them if you have the series complete. The non-original are less expensive, but still...

The Japanese magazine should be Rosso, I guess.

I think it was Rosso, not sure anymore, that was a year ago.
And i don't think that those boxes are original, but it's clean to put the mags in
