They have a wide selection at reasonable prices of pH neutral, archival
quality, white specimen boxes. Prices vary with the quantity ordered and box
size. We normally would get several museum departments to 'go in' on a larger
order to get better pricing. We also use ethafoam from a local supplier to
line the case bottom and individual boxes. Ethafoam is archival. I do not
know of a box supplier that makes boxes with the foam inserts included.

Hope this helps...
