    Looking for cartridge storage ideas. Doesn’t really matter which system. Let’s see your setup!

    This was how my cart’s looked up until last week ironically, it was setup like this as I did not have many of the original boxes remaining. Was never really happy with it as it was quite basic and bland looking although worked well.

    Currently I am replacing the format with each cart being placed in a universal game case and printing out a replacement cover from online. This has been a costly task and thus far have acquired 200 of the case’s but will more than likely require a 100 more. These cases seem quite cheap and easy to find in the USA but not so much in the UK.

    When complete in the next few weeks they will look much smarter on the shelfs and it will afford the cart’s less exposure and better protection.

    Hope this helps.

    Throwing them into  a box isn’t a valid storage method?

    I use old audio cassette boxes, like the one linked below, to store my loose SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis cartridges.

    You can try going the game case route:

    I got these from https://www.customgamecases.com/

    They’re a little pricey at $5 a piece, but the case quality is very good. They’re custom molded to fit each particular game console game. They’re about the size of those thick PC game cases games would come in during the early to mid 2000s. They’re also molded to fit N64 memory paks. This is the long-route if you want to display your games in cases, so it’s not a cheap display case option for loose games, but if you’re into this kind of thing like I am, it’s worth it long-term. I’m not a fan of loose games, and N64 games are tough to organize if you don’t have custom labels for the top of the cartridges. And obviously boxed games are getting harder and harder to find. I’d say the $5 is a small price to pay in the long-run.

    Very nice, that’s what I have been doing also but I was using the universal clear game cases which were about £2.50 to £3.50 a box. The amount of ink needed cost a fortune for printing the inlays also. For any original game boxes I used box protectors.

    I know what you mean as it looks so much better and a good way to look after the cartridges.

    Universal game cases are a good route too, though they may take some modification to fit different types of games. I have a few of them myself that I got before I started buying the custom game cases. I may continue to get them for my Nes games just for consistency.
