I'm working on a large collections move and we're wondering about the best way to pack plates. We used trays with custom dividers, with the trays in standard blue board boxes for the rest of the dish/glass collection, and are planning on using the same for plates. The move is to the other side of town, and the plates will be stored in the same boxes permanently. There are over 2000 plates, so we need a safe and economical way to pack them! How many can we safely stack in a tray with tissue/ethafoam/volara in between? Any brillant ways to pack them that we haven't thought of?
