Storage Boxes, Archive Boxes, etc

The Conservation By Design (CXD) range of storage boxes is one of the largest available and has been built up over many years. It is unique in the variety and quality of materials used to produce them. We provide a design and manufacturing service for die-cut, mass-produced or one-off, computer-generated, made- to-measure Storage Boxes - Smart Boxes’.

Most of the storage boxes are manufactured at the CXD Timecare Works factory in Bedford with others made by our sister company in France. All of our storage boxes have been designed in partnership with clients for the safe long-term storage and preservation of books, documents, newspapers, artworks and photographs. A key figure in the development of the CXD box range is Christopher Clarkson who developed an integrated box, folder and envelope system in 1981 when he was the Conservation Officer at the Bodleian Library in Oxford. Stuart Welch, the founder of CXD, worked with Christopher to develop an improved range of papers and boards from which to produce the Clarkson system. This was the beginning of the CXD Premier Duo’ Archival Folding Boxboard range and Heritage Archival pHotokraft’ papers.

More information on the Clarkson/Bodleian system and its history can be found on our web site.
