Archive boxes are a must-have for any business that needs long-term document storage.
They’re inexpensive and are ideal for filing and storing documents such as tax records, invoices and contracts.
What are archive boxes?
Archive boxes are cardboard boxes that are designed to store folders and files.
They’re the ideal size for holding lever-arch files and folders.
Each archive box has a securely fitted lid to protect folders and documents from dust.
Handholds make them easy to carry and transport.
Our new archive boxes
Ecobox archive boxes measure 430 mm high x 325 mm wide x 320 mm deep.
To give you an idea of size, one box holds five lever-arch files comfortably.
They’re made from sturdy cardboard that won’t buckle and are easy to assemble.
Uses for archive boxes
Archive boxes are primarily used in offices to store documents, folders and files that need to be kept for a long time. Here are a few less obvious uses.
Large boxes filled with books can be too heavy to carry.
Archive boxes are the perfect size for a manageable number of books and the handles make them easy to lift and transport.
We all have documents at home that need organising and storing long-term, such as:
- documents from buying or renting your home
- tax returns and records
- birth, marriage, divorce and death certificates
- motor-vehicle licences.
Archive boxes can be placed on high shelves that aren’t used on a daily basis.
Decorate archive boxes with paint, wrapping paper or découpage to fit in with your décor.
Archive boxes are ideal for storing textbooks, ring binders and flip files that you want to keep for revision or future reference.
Instead of cluttering up a bookshelf or floor space, store them in archive boxes and put them in a cupboard or under a bed.
If you need to transport pamphlets or brochures in your car, put an archive box in your boot to keep them from getting damaged.
Also, protect work documents from getting scuffed by keeping an archive box in your car.
Crafting and sewing supplies
Archive boxes are great for storing sewing and craft supplies, such as wool, stuffing material, fabric and fabric scraps.
If you’re a painter, use an archive box to store paint pots and brushes.
