Does anyone know of a file cabinet that stores 12x12 paper? I'm looking for something fairly sturdy.

I know Michaels sells one 12x12 file cabinet unit, but the reviews say that it isn't sturdy at all.

I think I saw one at Office Depot or Staples. It was a while back and may have been in their catalog.

I picked mine up at Walmart. It is in my gallery if you are interested in seeing it.

Passon4scrapping -- Do you mean the cabinet where you have horizontal paper trays?

travelscrapper2 -- I have searched on their sites and I can't come up with it. Ugh . . .

I wish Crop n' Style were still around. Mine have held up for years.

I have some cabniets above my deska nd what I did was drill holes half a inch on each side and then I cut wood that is thin and added the shelf hooks. That way I have two cabinets to put each color in. If you need a picure let me know. I love it.

It's not a cabinet but Cropper Hopper still sells a black metal rolling file cart that has file folders that are bigger than 12x12 that hold 12x12 paper.

I just looked on Amazon for you and they sell it there. It's under "Advantus Heavy Duty File Shuffle Cart". They also sell the files under, "Advantus Cropper Hopper Hanging File Holders". They are 13"x14".

I know you wanted a file cabinet, but I thought I'd mention this. I've had mine for years and it's VERY sturdy.

I have the Advantus rolling cart, and I have to agree it is great quality.

The reason I want the file cabinet is because I have 3 rolling carts and they take up so much floor space. I thought if I could build up, it would help because a I have a small room.

I see your point. Yes, they do take up a lot of space.

I wonder if you could alter a piece of furniture to work for you? That would be a lot of trouble though.

Does it have to be a file cabinet?

I have an idea that may work for you. For my 12x12 paper storage I started with Display Dynamic plastic storage trays. I'm still using these years later and still LOVE them.

The biggest advantage is that it only takes up 13" x 13" of floor space. One tray holds a lot of paper and they sell 10 trays in a set (I think it's 10) You can stack as many as 30 trays tall and they will stay sturdy. I have 3 stacks of 30 each in my room!

Another advantage is that you can see your paper supply much more easily. They come in a lipped version and an unlipped version. Lipped is nice if you want to label the trays. Unlipped is nice because it's easier to get the paper out of the tray.

I have contemplated a file cabinet as well on several occasions. The thing about it though is that a four drawer cabinet, chock full of paper will get REAL top heavy. This concerns me living in Ca of course

I would be happy with a 2 drawer cabinet. I would be able to use the top surface to put my cutters. With the Advantus carts, you can't put anything on top.

I think I saw it at Office Depot, but it was years ago. I'm pretty sure I saw it in the store. Thought about getting it at the time. Sorry I can't check now as I'm in a nursing home/rehab facility for the next month. Otherwise I would go look. Maybe a Google search.
