Traycases - Store Vertically or Horizontally

Post by kjordan » Fri Aug 16, 2019 12:02 pm

A question for those with books in tray cases. Do you store them vertically or flat (horizontally)? It seems to me that storing them vertically might be hard on the bottom of the tray case and make it bow out. What do people do? I have most of mine vertical right now.

Vertically. A lot of mine have "padding" on them and it would be flattened if sat horizontally.

agreed - vertically. For most books they're not heavy enough to damage the case by putting them vertically.

What about those with clasps at the bottom, like Full Dark no Stars Lettered edition?

Hmm, I don't own any with that type of design. I'd expect I'd store mine upside down (clasp up) if that were the design. Or if the box was solid enough I might store it horizontally, but in general for almost all the books I own, I store them vertically.

I have a number that I store horizontally but only because many of my shelves aren’t tall enough to stand them up, or my shelves are full and I have laid them across the top of other books.
