So I've been using my 500 pack of Tomoe River paper, among other things to make summaries of tech books I need for work... I have a Clairefontaine sleeve with elastic straps but it's a bit tight, any ideas? Tomoe river is slightly taller than A4. I'd like something better than a plain folder to keep them from falling. Thanks!

What about reusing a legal size file box?

Paper Box... You can find them on any Art & Craft store... dirt cheap ($3-$5) and keeps paper safe.

I recently bought a new 12" IPad Pro. It comes in a very sturdy white box about 1 1/2" high. My tomoe river paper fits perfectly in it.
I tend to keep my old Apple boxes because they are often attractive and quite well made. Not every one does though. Some might be interested in parting with theirs. Might be worth asking around online or stopping at an Apple Store. The large iPad Pro boxes are perfect for tomoe river paper.
I wonder if there's a market for Apple boxes. Also Used cigar boxes might work and they can be had easily on the bay.

Thanks! I was thinking of something more portable, but that would work for storage.

Thanks, that looks good for storage, how about to carry around? My Clairefontaine folder got wet inside my non weather proof backpack after a rain, fortunately the water didn't get to the paper.

Interesting, I dump all my packaging, including my Apple products... I was thinking of something more to carry around than for storage...

 

This is what I have now, it's only a few mm bigger than the paper, and being so thin the corners can bend easily...

To carry around?... I make A5 notebooks with my Tomoe River paper.  I don't carry around loose sheets.

 

 

Sorry,

As someone who writes with left, I cannot use notebooks very comfortably. Hence I use loose sheets.
I have 4000 sheets from the rakuten vendor, and I take out 10 of them at a time from the main package and store them in a folder.
Some used sheets are also kept in the folder to provide support to the page written on.

It is advisable to not remove the sheets from the packing it comes in. I removed 50 something from the package for daily usage and they caught moisture quickly. It didn't reduce the writing pleasure by much, but there was some difference.

I think what I need is a document wallet or holder. One made of Kraft tex would be nice.

I have a legal-size clear plastic envelope, capacity about one inch thick, that is perfect for my Tomoe River paper. I got it at an office supply store. It's exactly like those large kraft paper envelopes with a cord that winds around a cardboard tab to secure it - only in clear fairly stiff plastic.

Thanks, I had one of those, and will probably end up with another if I don't find something better; although the one I had aged badly, nothing is quite so sad as old plastic.

I know what you mean - my current envelope is a softer plastic and therefore seems to age better than the harder more brittle kind, but on the other hand it's not quite as sturdy for carrying the paper around. Good luck in your search!

I ended up getting one of these, almost the one suggest by Cyber6 but thinner I think... It's just a nice cardboard box, by "Bigso Box of Sweden".. Made in Lithuania. I hope it survives being carried around.
