It occurs to me, Majesties, that what might serve better here than a stack of 
individually cut scroll holders, would be two sheets of clear medium weight 
plastic that can be rolled up for easy storage or transportation, but have 
enough weight to function well in a protective capacity.  In this way, if 
several scrolls of different sizes, or many scrolls of the same size, are put 
on display, there is no worry that we will run out of the correct size holder.  
We simply put down the first sheet, arrange the scrolls neatly on it, then 
gently lay the second sheet over them.  That way we can also make optimal use 
of the space on the table.
