i've gotten to a point where i can't keep up with framing the prints i keep on buying so i was wondering what other people do with their prints before they frame them?

- do you just keep them in the shipping rolls they come in?

how about like artist sketches...i can't be framing every single one right now so what would be the best way to protect them?

thanks!

Store flat. Whether it be in a portfolio with sleeves or a flat file. Keeping them rolled is no good for a print.

Remove from the roll as quickly as you can. Store flat with some non acidic tissue paper on them. If you go to an art supply shop, you can buy a large art folio to store them in with thick card backing.

Leaving them in a roll for too long will damage it.. especially if there's even the slightest sign of humidity.

Definitely flat like everyone else said. If you keep them rolled long enough, they'll be almost impossible to completely flatten.

If you go to hobby lobby you can get a couple 32"x40" acid free foam boards. $9 and you can use the 40% off too. You'll have to ask for them cuz they're in the back with the framers. Then just use some oversized binder clips to clamp them together. They also have acid free plastic sleeves you can use for a little extra protection.

Like everyone says, store flat. I would use an archival acid free paper on either side of the print. You can get this at almost any art supply store. It is also a good idea to have a couple of pieces of masonite board cut to sandwich the print and acid free paper between.

I usually paste in walls. Such that it will be cleaned regularly. You can cover it with canvas or plastic sheets.
