Default Machine quilting ruler storage

Just received an early Christmas gift of ruler foot and rulers and loving them! I am concerned that storing them loosely together will scratch some of the measurement markings on them. I'm thinking about an accordion pleated file maybe or do I need to worry? TIA

I have a couple of these ruler racks, though slightly different. I bought mine from Dusty Farrell at his booth at Road2CA. I can't find them on his website, but he may have them for sale if you contact him. (They were much cheaper than the link below.)

I have a hard carry case for going to class because I was afraid I would bend and crack some. For home storage, an accordion file sounds good.

Some of mine have a jigsaw like piece to take out to get the foot inside the template & i don't want to misplace that. Low shank, Westalee brand.

how about a 3 ring binder with page protectors to hold your rulers and pieces

I have been building my stash of rulers for a few years now and they outgrew the bags I originally had them in. For now, I keep them in ziplock bags - more than one to a bag - in a Vera Bradley compact weekend bag and it's working for me. I want to be able to put them away when I'm finished with them.

I have mine in binders. I bought 4 inch binders and heavy duty page protectors. These page protectors have a flap on the top. I bought them on Amazon. Works perfect for me. I can see what I have

How about a portable file storage case?

I haven't decided on a storage method for mine yet. I haven't used them yet either. I continue to be a bit intimidated by them.
