Hello all

I collect 8x10s of my favorite Sports Stars. I was wondering how everyone protect the autos from fading over time ?

Ive seen the sunlight and fluorescent lights fade an auto over time.

Just want to protect them the best i can but still be able to display them year after year and not end up with this...


Not mine...i used google images. But we have all seen it before.

Keep out of direct sunlight and really away from any light if possible. If storing in a binder use acid free, archival quality sleeves. Try to keep the photos in a room that is not too humid or not too dry.
