    I can’t believe I’ve never seen this thread. I literally have hundreds of prints, it was my first real collectors bug. My wife and I have so much art that we change up the art every year or so and haven’t really had many things stay in frames for more than a couple years. I’ll have to post some pics of my favs when I get a chance.

    How do you store what you do not display?

    I have 5 flat files packed full. You used to be able to find them on Craigslist for around $75-100 each. Well worth the money. People on here I FART A LOT about moving toys when relocating, try moving flat files full of paper. It’s stupid.

    That's nice.
    I would not have the room for a flat file so I have to store them vertically which is . . . well, not ideal.

    @a.tom I don't have the space for a flat either so I have some rolled up in a protective tube and some sandwiched between two pieces of cardboard under my mattress. Not ideal but haven't had any issues with either method.

    Yeah, i store mine in an oversized folder with wax paper between them but it is a little too messy for my taste. Tubes don't work for me because once they go into the tube, they will stay there forever. I at least want to be able to take an admiring look every now and then.
    Thinking about getting one of those flipable vertical poster racks they have at comic stores.

    I don’t have a lot of prints (focus on putting up original art work on my walls and not accumulating stuffs I can’t hang).
    However I got into my first collecting phase buying silkscreen books which I think are kinda similar as having prints... maybe?. First from Le Dernier Cri and Bongoüt and then I discover this all world of people making insane super limited handmade books and thought I needed them all. Because I most definitely needed to support the people behind it, thought it was important to have the craziest books ever made close to me, and for the inspiration it gave me.
    Last prints I bought were from Tetsunori Tawaraya, Skinner and Alex Pardee.

    Oh jeez! I only have one flat file, and it's absolute hell to move it - I can't imagine moving 5!

    And you can find what the Bongoût people (rebranded Re:Surgo! Years ago) are doing nowadays, as well as a few awesome older stuffs here https://beuysonsale.com/

    Loads of prints and strange books. Also worth checking out Timeless edition and the newer E2 and Hollow Press.

    Those 3 (and the two smaller newer ones) gives a fair view of the self made/self edited books and poster in Europe (well, it’s mostly France and Germany, with a pinch of Belgium and Italy).

    Got this Rob Sato riso print in the mail today. I'm a sucker for anything with a grid layout. I really like the colors on this too.

    Some of these would make great postage stamps. We're in dire need of good art for stamps :|

    The Johnny Ryan "Peanuts" gang commemoratives would be something. I'm not sure grandma would appreciate that letter ;)
