    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.

      need some help

      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.
