How to store CD and cassette tape inserts, attractively
December 3, 2012 10:04 PM   Subscribe

Storing paper/cardboard inserts from cassettes and CDs -- is this a solved problem? I'm going to have ~100 cassette inserts and 200-300 CD inserts. I'm wondering if there's some kind of pockety book thing that will make it easy to refer to these in the future and to enjoy looking at them casually/nostalgically.

Yep, finally digitizing cassettes. And I've managed to make FLAC files of all the music CDs in the house -- yay! I'm hoping to use the discs for some kind of fish-scale-themed art project, but I (and my SO) want to keep the pretty and informative paper inserts for all the recordings.

Any ideas? Putting them in a box doesn't appeal so much because it will be a little difficult to sort through them to find whatever specific one is desired. It occurrs to me that a nice book format could be kind of fun to flip through in the future.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

Do you have any of those old Case Logic folders for storing CDs? You could tuck the last page of each booklet into the pockets. You'd have to be pretty careful turning pages though. The pockets on both sides of the page can usually fit the whole booklet too, then you'd just have to yank the whole thing out each time you wanted to flip through individual booklets.

Seconding carsonb. Not that I've looked at my CD booklets much since I put them into the binder (after having ripped all the CDs), but they take up much less space that way.
