Where and how to share EMF files

I have been creating transportation sign face files in Illustrator and exporting them to EMF format for use in layers depicting transportation signs.  I have many Federal and California MUTCD signs that cannot be created using the MUTCD fonts in ArcMap.  The draftmanship is not perfect but it is very decent, and since in most cases the signs are displayed very small to avoid overlapping each other on a map, they meet my needs for conveying what the sign looks like.  Whereever possible I try to use Spec diagrams of the signs as a background for element placement and size accuracy.

Since I probably am not the only person who would use such files, I wanted to share them with the community.  However, I was not sure where to share them.  They do not seem like Samples and Utilities, Data Models, or Galleries, so I am not clear where it is best to load them.  Also, should I post the individual EMF files or create a style file and post that? 

I have zipped up 20 signs as an example of my work.  I actually have 200 signs created so far and growing.  Is anybody interested in this?
