Hi everyone.

I have a question on print storage. I have some of my stuff framed, normally get the uv glass,etc. But I have been keeping my unframed stuff in tubes which I am finding out is not good. How does everyone store there prints? I have no drawers big enough to lay flat...is there a special kind of plastic bag to insert them into, etc? Thanks, I know this is a basic question, but I appreciate it.

You can find some good solutions in the Art Care section of the forum http://forum.expressobeans.com/viewforum.php?f=3 I personally use two pieces of acid free foam core to make a "sandwich" for the print to be able to be flattened in and then I either leave it in the foam core or I put it in my 18" x 24" portfolio or my 24" x 36" portfolio once it is properly flattened, which can be found here http://www.jerrysartarama.com/discount- ... -cases.htm

Check out the 'Art Care' forum. There are some good threads there.
