    Hi there,


    I use a large but skinny cardboard box to store mine. I can tuck it against the wall of the closet and the posters don't get warped or bent.


    However, an even better idea might be to store them on a rolling cart or storage basket that goes under the bed. They can lay flat and when you need to pull one out - just roll it out from under the bed, take what you need, then roll it back. It won't take up much room this room. You can buy these or diy your own - like this :

    Hi lis, if you are meaning true poster board, you can store in an guest room bed under the quilt/comforter. Or, between the mattress and box spring. That’s where I keep my jigsaw puzzles on a piece of plexiglass.

    I always slid them in the space behind the couch or desk.

    Hi there. Cindy here. I agree with Karen. Think vertical. You could put L brackets and a shelf up near the ceiling to store your poster boards. Or perhaps you could roll the poster boards and put them in a tall skinny bin made to store Christmas wrapping paper. They come with a lid.

    Hello Lis12523544,


    If you are storing only the paper in there, and you would like an inexpensive idea, try this...


    If you have access to a narrow cardboard box that would fit in the closet, that will help to keep the poster board straight, clean, and organized.


    You can make the box more appealing by decorating the outside with paint, fabric, or contact paper.


    Hope this helps, feel free to message me back if you have any more questions.
