    Is a better way to store mounted 645 and 6x7 slides?

    I have been using card file boxes from Office Max/Depot which will hold ~ 100 cardboard mounted (Blair Mounts) 6x7's or ~ 50 in Gepe mounts. But I've always wondered about the archive quality of the inexpensive (<$5) Office Max/Depot file boxes. Is there a better storage alternative available? I have several thousand mounted slides. The 6x7 mounts are 85x85mm. There are Print File pages for the 35mm slides but nothing that I have found in the past for the 645 and 67.

    You can get hanging file sheets that fit in standard steel filing cabinets, which i find to be the best way to store them and to view a whole sheet at once on my large light box.

    I keep mine in print file sleeves and closing binders for the most part.
