Leroy,

I think the most appropriate way to store literate would be in individual acid free sleeves. You could then put them all into some type of container and keep them from moisture and changes in temperature. I think rolling up the banners would be best as you do not want any folds. While I am not an expert, I think you may want to wrap them in something to keep sunlight and bugs out.

Better yet, just bring all of it to Hugh Hawthorne's tomorrow and I will save you the worry. :D

I have some dealer literature and display materials I need to
put in storage. I have some plastic containers with a lid from
wallyworld and some cardboard boxes. I don,t know which will work the best. What is the best way to store this stuff.
What are the do's and don'ts. Also what is the best way to store
banners?

Where can you get the acidfree sleeves, what are they?
Thats a lot time to sleeve all this stuff and a lot of different sizes. Would the sealed plastic box be better or cardboard so it can breath a little. I might come to Hugh,s, I would like to see his
collection, and I think he has a franklin like mine.

Hey Leroy, I didn't see a Franklin when I was there last Christmas, but he does have a 58 Packard wagon in his shed.

Leroy as Guido said, put them in acid free protective sleeves that you can buy at STAPLES. Then put them in the Wally World tubs with the lids tightly secured. All of my literature is sroed in acid-free sleeves and then in notebooks. This includes all of my magazine collection also.

As far as the containers, I like the plastic tubs. If the material is going into an area where moisture is high, like standing water kinda high, the tubs will be less likely to soak water into them(barring the water stays below the top line of course). I also like them for long lasting durability, where a few years later the bottoms aren't falling out of them if they get wet. That and alot of them are stackable with lockable tabs, so its just a matter of grabbing them by the ends when moving them.

Don't use cardboard!! Cockroaches love it, and so do other critters and it isn't acid-free.
The previous suggestions are probably the best. I would wonder about using these big plastic bags that you can suck the air out of with a vacuum cleaner. You can also go with acid-free albums with clingy plastic, that would save you 'sleeving' each page.

Try Home Depot or Lowes for the Tubs. As for the banners go to an Office Supply store (not Staple) that sells storage tubes used by architecta and engineers to store their blue prints in. You can get them in all kinds of sizes and banners will fit in them very well

Thats great I never thought of the bluprint tubes maybe they are acid
free or do you need that for cloth or whatever slick material the banners are. Another post had tips for keeping rats out, what keeps
the silverfish and other bugs away?

Moth Balls!!!! You may want to wrap the banners in acid free paper. Ask the store where you find the tubes they can help you.

See you in the future as I write about our past
