    Default How I Store my Luftwaffe Decal

    Here are some pics of a single Luftwaffe decal I have in my collection. I store it in an "Ultra Pro" baseball card holder. This provides it with a little breathing room, but keeps it in place. The case is hard acrylic, made to hold valuable baseball cards. It is super clear and has UV protection. Anyone else store them this way?

    I don't have one but, if I did, I would probably find something similar.

    Very cheap! That case cost me $1.50. I have an extra should I pick up another single decal.

    These are nice . I use non screw-down sleeves for period
    photos as well. Items can then be handled and displayed
    without fear of the piece inside getting damaged.........

    That works well, I have a CA Pocher SS decal in one of those exact card holders. I made the mistake of storing one (a loose CA Pocher SS decal) once in an acrylic screw down holder and the decal face now is stuck. To try to remove it means peeling it off and it falls apart. Lesson learned....

    Interesting you should mention that, Doug. I was looking at the screw down holder for ticket stubs, which I assume would be the same thing you used. It popped into my head that all that pressure might not be a good thing as the decal may do exactly as your Pocher did. Guess I will stay away from those. I liked the card holder because of the extra space inside and not pressing the decal between the two pieces.

    I have a similar type, screw down version, acid free UV stabilized, I haven't had a problem yet with decals sticking

    I think I remember you saying about your rather expensive bespoke paperweight Doug. That stings
