BCW Plans to Use Former Grocery for Warehousing and Light Assembly

The owners of BCW Supplies have purchased the former Marsh Supermarkets located at 2940 Broadway St., Anderson, Indiana. BCW will maintain its site on East 31st St. in Anderson as its headquarters, with plans to use the former grocery for additional warehousing and light assembly. BCW serves the hobby industry with over 900 products to protect, store and display collectibles. These include supplies for comics, trading cards, coin and currency, records, sports memorabilia, and other hobbies.

“BCW Supplies has been growing steadily and more warehouse space is needed. The additional site adds 40,000 square feet to our existing 78,000 square feet, allowing BCW to keep pace with market demands.”
– Ken O’Brien, BCW Supplies Director of Sales & Marketing

BCW Supplies has been an Anderson-based business since it was founded in 1983. BCW looks forward to continued growth in Anderson and plans to be a good neighbor to the local businesses and residents of the former supermarket.

BCW is hiring to meet the demands of the company’s growth. Motivated individuals can apply at 514 E. 31st St., Anderson, IN. A brief description of the available positions is here.

Horizontal Trading Card Dividers

BCW now offers Horizontal Card Dividers. These are helpful for all card boxes that store cards in the horizontal/landscape format (listed below). The index tab on these dividers is scored so the tab can fold down to fit inside a closed box. The dividers are made from a durable plastic, so the tabs do not break off after folding.

BCW Card Boxes are Ideal for Model Trains

At BCW, we love it when hobbyists find uses for our products in ways we never envisioned. One great example comes from model train collectors. BCW has developed numerous corrugated boxes designed to protect trading cards. In the hands of a model train collector, these boxes are perfect for storing and shipping miniature trains. Model trains come in several scales that fit nicely in the various sizes of BCW boxes, leaving just the right amount of space to add bubble wrap or tissue.

John from The Virginia Foundry and Model Works stated, “I make and sell HO scale kits and ship them in your boxes. I have made literally hundreds of shipments in your boxes with not a single claim of any damage due to the box. … They’re just great for this purpose and stand up admirably to any post office abuse. And many of my kits have been shipped overseas with the same excellent results.”

Which BCW Cardboard Boxes are Large Enough for Card Holders or Graded Cards?

Most BCW cardboard boxes are only large enough to hold standard 2½” x 3½” cards or cards in sleeves. However several boxes have wider rows to accommodate cards in protective holders such as semi-rigids, toploaders, 1-screws, magnetics or other holders or cases. Some BCW boxes are designed to hold graded cards or other tall cards. A few boxes have both wide rows and increased height.

If you are trying to decide which BCW boxes are right for your collection, the list below shows the basic sizes. If you store cards in protective holders, you’ll need a box with WIDE rows. If you have graded cards, other tall cards, or you have 4-screw card holders, get a box labelled GRADED.

Note the length of the card boxes are often named by the number of cards they can hold, such as a 930-ct. Box, however these sizes are based on the thickness of a traditional card. Modern cards are often thicker than traditional Topps baseball cards. Learn more

Protecting Your Booklet Cards

Booklet cards are hot for sports cards collectors! They are often extra thick with jersey patches and/or autographs. These cards can be stored in a closed format in a hinged or slider box, but most collectors like to store their booklets in the open position to get the full presentation. BCW offers sleeves, toploaders, and bags to enclose the toploaders (the bags can also enclose a magnetic booklet card holder). The supplies listed below are available for booklets in horizontal and vertical formats.
