How should I be keeping my published articles/writing samples?

I'm eventually angling for a job as a music critic, and to that end have had a couple articles printed in the (now-defunct) local alt-weekly and some very short (70-word) reviews in a semi-national magazine. I've saved them in their published form, but should I do something specific with them? Cut them out and mount them on cardboard? Photocopy them? Obviously I'll put them some a scrapbook or something for personal reasons, but I'm wondering more in terms of writing samples that I'd need when applying for jobs or pitching articles. So far, most editors have accepted emails with copied-and-pasted text, but I figure I should have some of the actual articles around for backup.
