I was wondering if there are any good binder pages built for storing comics?

I like looking at BCWSupplies.com. They have lots of storage and protection options.

Thank you. At one time I thought they made something, but I have been out of collecting for a while and couldn't remember.

Does anyone actually do this with their comics. I was thinking of doing this. Since I have a lot of limited series it would be a good way to organize stuff and if I wanted to read the series or lend it to someone I would just grab the binder. Only thing I am afraid of is if it might cause bending of the comic or something if the proper binder is not used. Any suggestions would be good.

The only thing i could see as a draw back would be spine roll............unless its done different from when i was thinking about doing this back in the late 90s....ive seen alot of people with nice books............decimated by binders over time...sad sad thing.

Yeah I was worried about that too, or that if the pages were not sitting properly in the binder you might get some bending of the comics. I don't think spine roll would be that much of an issue if I still kept them in the bags with the boards.

Yeah, if it is a binder that doesn't put something through the book to hold it, and instead uses a top loader with side grommets, I would think that should be ok.

Especially if the top loader has a seal flap, and you can board it.

the binders that they sell are the same as you can buy for cheaper in the store. i keep a few expensive stuff in them. with a mylar in a mylite2.

I used to have a pic of a collector's room that used binders as storage. He had 100s of these from floor to ceiling like a library. It's not the most cost effective way to store comics if you have a large collection. But for some smaller more expensive books it would be ok I guess. Still doesn't sway me away from file cabinets.
