    Question Uline bins for selling posters?

    Hi all!

    I've noticed some folk's Flatstock booths have been featuring some sweet comic-book-style bins of posters to flip through. The kind folks at Two-Arms told me they got theirs at Uline but I CANNOT find this item in the catalog. Help? I just need a bin that's 19" wide and tall enough that posters won't flop out.

    If you go to 20" wide instead of 19" there are probably over 50 different choices of boxes at Uline. Just call their 800 number and tell them the dims you want.

    I now use these: Milk Crates, Plastic Crates in Stock - ULINE

    I have six that I stack and zip tie together.

    I zip tie two rows of three together. You can put a sand-bag or something in the bottom row to keep them from tipping over.

    Next, stack the two rows and zip tie those together.

    I had a plastic banner made to wrap around the sides and front.

    The whole deal fits in a box and ships cheaply and easily. I've used it at two shows now without any problems.

    I've gone through A LOT of iterations to get to this point and this is definitely the easiest, lightest and most compact reusable system.

    Now, I just need to figure out the best plastic sleeves to use for these.

    I was admittedly skeptical at first, but after seeing the banner wrapped around the whole rig I'm sold. Digging the portability, ease, and strength - well done Tuffy!
