I need some suggestion for storing my open end nets and silks safely. I had a PA ruin two of them on my last job. For lack of a better idea, I had them in a cardboard sleeve, like an artists portfolio.

Thin wood boxes. A seperate one for each size or a larger one with seperate compartmens for each size.
Use cardboard (or some foamcore reflectors) for dividers.
I use the flags in each box to seperate them.

Kaye lights sells a lightweight plastic flag box, I built a flag box that hold four of them on wheels. When a break off unit is needed or when I want to have several close at hand (closer than the flag box) I pull the small plastic part out for a "on set" flag box. It protects them and keeps them handy. I can also keep them in two "sandwiched" ( solid single double silk solid) per smaller flag box. It works great protecting them and keeping them organized. They arent too expensive. also alternate the single and double with the frame out so that one frame protects the open side of the other. you could probably use your cardboard sleeve with a wood flag box. Flag and nets are delicate. They always seem to be the first to get wounded on a set.

hit me up for a great local 80 guy who sews repairs and recovers cheap.
