  We've been getting them from UKGE. Downside: you have to fold them yourself. But they are precut and scored for folding.

Classic, low cost, self assembly, flat pack cardboard trays. We provide full instructions on how to assemble these trays, they are quick and easy to put together, and can be used in storage drawers, as transport boxes, or for temporary storage of specimens. A great way for storing families of fossils, rocks or minerals together, and they can also be easily labelled.

Looking for recommendations for a source for cardboard specimen trays, the kind that go into a drawer in a specimen cabinet.  We have some from Ward’s, but they are quite expensive. For a teaching collection, so highest quality not needed. Thanks - Roy
