Reviving this very old topic...I usually only post on Broadway side of the board, but I live in Germany and also go to London occasionally and see shows there and am wondering about storing the programs.Most of mine from the West End are 170x240cm, which is just in between A4 and A5. All my Playbills from Broadway go into B5 sleeves and folders, but I don't know what to do with my West End programs. Are there any sleeves for that size? I'd be fine putting them in an A4 folder, but in the A4 sleeves I have them in right now they slide around because they are way too big :-/Does everybody just keep them sleeveless or is there a way to solve this?
I use these for my tickets:https://www.amazon.co.uk/Just-Ticket-Stub-Organizer/dp/1441303502/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1467554949&sr=8-1&keywords=just+the+ticketYou can buy refill pages as well.My programmes are on a bookshelf, arranged by date.
I keep all of my tickets in date order inside a plastic file which I then keep in a wooden cabinet.I keep my programmes in alphabetical order inside the above mentioned cabinet.I keep souvenir brochures and trinkets (such as mugs, jewellery, tins) in an identical cabinet next to the above one.I keep 3 flyers for every show I see or like the artwork of and 2 for every other show that I can find a flyer for ( this is becoming more difficult each year as paperfree advertising takes over). These I keep on shelves in transparent plasic boxes with lids and ordered alphabetically and sub-categorised into type: musical, play, opera, ballet, other dance, cabaret, stand-up, circus, other entertainment, any other theatre-related flyer (such as tours or dvds or award shows). I used large shoeboxes prior to obtaining the right size plastic boxes.I keep posters in cardboard tubes and in alphabetical order.I keep carrier bags with show logos in alphabetical order behind the wardrobe and lapel pins in a big tin in mu trinkets cupboard. I keep theatrical madks on the wall.Yes, I do believe I am obsessive and, yes, I do need more cupboards/ plastic boxes.
I also do magazine folders, but I just put ticket stub in there as well. Maybe I should also look into a photo album!! :)
We bought a collage frame and cut a drilled two holes in the top and cut out the section in between and hung it on our wall. One ticket from every show get popped in the top. It is full now, so have to push it in. We also put in tickets to museums, concerts and other events. The ticket that ended up dead center against the glass is from a cave tour.I bought 6 nice cardboard boxes that look like leather and organized them by Broadway, Tours, regional professional, college, community theater, high school & others. Unforturnately, I have run out of space in all of them and now for the last 3 years they go into one box as I haven't found anything like the original boxes.
