Although white comic boxes are the standard for protecting and storing comic book collections, there are now several great options for colorful, printed comic book boxes. Until recently, finding a printed comic box was rare. A Little Shop of Comics in New Jersey had the Marvel box seen below in their collection. This Marvel Comic Book Collection Box was offered by the Collectors Marketing Corp. in 1989.

BCW Supplies now prints several designs of comic book boxes. These are all based on the BCW Short Box which can hold 150-175 bagged and boarded comic books and are made from a strong cardboard with double thickness on the ends and bottom of the box. These are BCW’s printed comic boxes, as of June, 2016:
At BCW, we classify BiA boxes as “Mini Comic Boxes”. These are different dimensions than traditional BCW Short Comic Boxes. BiA Mini Boxes are slightly taller, and a few inches less in length, compared to BCW Short Boxes. As such, BiA Mini Boxes do not fit inside BCW Short Comic Houses. BiA Minis hold approximately 135 bagged and boarded comics, while a BCW Short Box holds about 165 comics.
BCW offers Boxes in Action products to comic shops at the same price as they can receive directly from BiA. The option to order from BCW lets shops get all of their supplies from one source and makes it easier to take advantage of BCW’s Free Shipping benefits.
