From the Archive: MTG Tuck Boxes and Storage Dividers


A bunch of couple of years ago my oldest kid (who is turning 18 this year) was introduced to Magic: The Gathering at the after-school activity program at his middle school. At home, being the oldest, his siblings were just a hair too young to be able to fully comprehend the nuances of the game, and so they were quickly defeated and quickly demoralized. That’s when I got involved.

A couple decks later, a few tutorial sessions with an adult friend who had played since the beginning, and several e-bay bulk lot orders and I suddenly found myself with WAY more decks and cards than I knew what to do with. So what does an autistic nerd do? Obviously not save both time and sanity ordering a couple of deck cases and some bulk storage boxes online. Instead I designed custom tuck boxes and custom dividers for the bulk storage boxes (that, at least was something I had quite a few of).

As part of the From the Archive series, I am reposting the files (printable pdfs are below – ai files, fonts, and other resources can be found in the .zip file at the bottom of this post.

Tuck Boxes

These are intended to be printed duplex on heavy card stock. The trim and fold lines end up on the inside, with the colorful graphics on the outside. After cutting out each box with a hobby knife and a ruler, I used the ruler and a semi-sharp tool (I think I actually used the pocket clip of the cap of one of those blue Bic pens) to score the fold lines so that I got nice clean edges and corners. After that was just a glue stick and some assembly.

Bulk Storage Dividers

These are also intended to be printed on heavy card stock (although not duplexed). I used a hobby knife and a straight edge to cut all the straight lines and then very carefully trimmed the radii of the tabs. These are separated into files by color. Each color has the following dividers:

  • Land
  • Creatures
  • Artifacts
  • Sorcery
  • Enchantments
  • Instants
