Storing Printed Artwork

I’m making more and more. The prints are piling up. I have a chest of drawers where I keep artwork stacked and flat, but I am I storing artwork properly? I’m a self taught linocut artist who is still in the process of learning how to make stuff at home, working out how to keep pieces safe has been an afterthought until now.

I bought some glassine paper for interleaving.

Putting glassine between prints helps protects your work. It is acid free (it won’t discolour your prints over time), it is a resistant barrier to grease, air and humidity AND it is pulp based. It doesn’t contain plastic, waxy paraffins or films so it is biodegradable and environmentally friendly.

Let us know how and where you keep your work. I feel like I’m doing the right thing, but its always useful to hear tips and advice from other people too.
