Re: Print yellowing along outside border

Re: Print yellowing along outside border

Thanks for all the responses. The foam board is definitely acid free - I got it from a local art supply store. Also it shows no signs of yellowing. I do plan on getting some better glass, but in the meantime wanted to at least put in the spacers (which are acid free) and add the dust cover. Should I...

Re: Storing prints flat
