    If you use it frequently why not spray paint it? It would keep light out
and you could do all sorts of funky designs.
sounds cool

If you really mean LARGE volumes, we are using big plastic
boxes by Tupperware. They are about 35 cm long x 25 cm
wide x 12 cm high and probably meant for layer cakes
originally. A tray is included that happens to have nice
ridges for slides. You can get trays separately and stack
about 3-4 of them in the box. This way you get at least 60-80
slides in the box. And as we are talking about Tupperware,
the lid of course is tight enough to keep moisture in :-)

Two drawbacks:
The box is originally transparent, so one
needs to cover it for light-sensitive applications.
Also I heard they no longer produce the box, so you need
to be quick if you want one.
