The Best Way To Store Your Collectables and Memorabilia 

Storing collectables and memorabilia can be a delicate process, as these items are rare or valuable and require special care to preserve their condition. Here are some tips for the best way to store your collectables and memorabilia. 

Keep Them In A Cool, Dry Place

Heat and humidity can cause damage to your collectables over time so it is important to store them in a cool, dry environment. Avoid storing them in areas like attics or basements, where temperature and humidity fluctuations can occur. 

Use Acid-Free Materials

Acid-free materials like archival boxes, sleeves, and tissue paper are essential for preserving the condition of your collectables. Acidic materials can cause discolouration and deterioration over time, so it is important to choose materials that won’t damage your items. Use acid-free tissue. This will not damage your items so you can use it to wrap your collectables and memorabilia. Use the acid-free tissue to wrap around your items and use the tissue to fill empty spaces within storage boxes as you don’t want your items to move around when you move the box as this could damage them if they are moving around the box. 

Avoid Direct Sunlight and Remove Air

Exposure to direct sunlight can cause fading and discolouration, so it is important to store your collectables in a location where they will not be exposed to direct sunlight. Air can oxidise collectables like coins and light can fade colour so you need to remove both when storing. If you have anything that is metal, place them in air-tight containers and keep everything stored away from windows. Ensure that your storage bins are opaque so no light can get in. 

Display Them Properly

If you want to display your collectables, make sure you do so in a way that won’t damage them. Use display cases, stands, and mounts that are specifically designed for your type of collectible.

Handle Them Carefully

When handling your collectables, make sure you do so with clean, dry hands. Avoid touching the surface of the items directly, and use gloves if necessary. 

Keep Them Organised

It is important to keep your collectables organised and properly labelled. This will help you to keep track of what you have and make it easier to find specific items when you need them.
