    I think a slipcase similar to the magazine slipcases would work well.

    My chapbooks currently are just sitting rather haphazardly on the shelf so like the idea of a binder.

    I have my chapbooks just lined up between bookends on a bookshelf and it is not the best solution. I really like the binder idea due to its easy expandability, but a slipcase would look nice and work well too.

    I was the one who sent the pictures of my binder. I have them in a 3-ring for 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 in top loading sleeves. (I picked it up at office max for $15.) The only real problem with it is that since the sleeves are designed for only 1 page, the chap books stick out about 1/8 in above the openning; and if you grab the binder wrong, they will all slide out. I only have six chap books, but that fills up my binder completely.

    I've noticed online that some companies make slipcases & binders of the right size that are meant for storage of business recordshttp://store.franklinplanner.com/sto...es-%26-Sleeves

    I keep my chapbooks individually in archival comic book bags, generally accompanied by the archival board.
    I do the same!!!

    I'd probably be more partial to a nice snug (not too snug) slipcase but that binder did look nice.... imagine an official CD binder no less (drool..)

A slipcase or a binder. So we decided to have a poll to see what everyone thinks. Below is an image of a customer's binder in case you weren't sure what we meant by binder.

    I agree! An official CD binder (or slipcase) would be awesome!!

    Binder sounds like a great idea. Right now I have them in archival bags but not individually, I have way to many. They are for the most part sorted by publisher. With the exception of glossy bound chaps, I shelf those along with novellas.

    I was envisioning a straight forward 3 ring type binder with archival sleeves but the whole thing sized down to chapbook size. Then the CD logo on the upper spine and a clear sleeve under that so you can slip in a list of contents. Make the spin back at least 2 to 3 inches so you can fit several chaps in each. This way it can be used for the vast majority of chapbooks that anyone makes and advertises CD even when it doesn't contain CD chapbooks.

    I currently have a small shelf in one of my bookcases that these fit on nicely but I love the idea of the binder! That pesky dust gets into the book case a bit even with glass doors.

    I voted for binder though right now I just use the comic bag/board method since I don't own that many. A binder with the CD decal on it would be great.
