Hello. I have a handful of prints that I have still in the shipping tubes. I was reading and found out its not a good idea to keep them in there too long. So I was hoping to get a few pointers on how some people store there artwork correctly. Most of my prints are 24" x 36". I've thought about putting them individually in 24 x 36 Pvc acid free top loaders. Would this be a safe way? Or maybe between two acid free foamcore boards? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Ive been searching for an idea i have but could not find anything similar. I was wondering if anyone has tried this....
Im trying to go for a comic book style storage. You know how comic books come with that back cardboard and the plastic sleeve? Thats what im shooting for.

Frame destination
1.Protective crystal clear bags

2.Acid free foam core backing board

Bags Unlimited
3. Photo/print box storage

Now for the protective clear bags from (frame destination). Should i get the 24 7/16" x 36 1/4" or the 40 7/16" x 30 1/4"?
I want to be able to fit a piece of foam core backing in the sleeve. Im worried if i buy the 24 x 36 bag it will be too tight with the foam core board. Should i go with the bigger bag 40 x 30?

Depends on the thickness of the foamcore you use , attach the print with the big photo corners on the backing board and your good to go. :pint:

As long as you not buying 3 quater inch the smaller will work with the thinner backing boards.
Yeah , on the photo corner keeps them from wearing the edges and moving around..

are you talking about the 24 x 36 bags will be fine with the thin backing board?
