would it be alright to hang them in my room? i just have them in regular frames, do i need to get UV protected ones? i have a window but keep the blinds closed and have a light (has energy efficient bulb) that i was worried about fading the autos, i want to do something with them, they are just sitting in my closet collecting dust

I'm by no means an expert, but a few things I've picked up from others are to use UV glass if they're going to be in light and you want them to last as long as possible. Also, try matting the picture in the frame to keep the signature off of the glass.

the best possible thing to do is mat them but if you cant do that-then keep them out of the sunlight-and i always take them out of the frames ever once in a while-because after a long time the autograph will stick to the glass.trust me i lost a couple because of that.i hope this helps.
