Storing folded posters
« on: December 21, 2017, 05:01:24 PM »
Is it better to store folded posters folded or unfolded? I tried searching but couldn't find the right terms to find anything useful.

If you have the room (or storage space like flat files), then unfolded would be great. Less stress on the folds when having to unfold them when looking at them.

But folded and bagged is great, too, in storage boxes, if space is at a premium.

TLC is paramount, imho.

I bagged mine and they are is stacks (same size) about 100 high in a darkened box.

It is good to let them have a little humidity to help them not dry out, but haven't figured out how best to do that.Most of mine are ziplocked in bags which I think is a no no

Wow,,,

Size (height) does seem to matter in the poster hobby.

Good on you, Steve.

I'm jealous.  8)
