If you have run out of room on your walls and are looking for a way to store your extra poster prints, or if you just need a way to keep your posters safe until you can display them again, then there is a way that you can store your posters and keep them safe for a very long time. The primary enemies of posters are sunlight, moisture and air. So to protect your posters you need to limit the exposure to all of those elements.


Things You'll Need:

  • 1 poster shipping tube for each poster to be stored
  • Large cardboard storage box with storage compartments
  • Shipping tape
  • Black magic marker
  1. Remove your poster from the wall carefully. Slowly remove all tape and adhesive from the back of the poster. This process should take a while as removing adhesive too quickly will damage your poster. If a piece of tape cannot be removed without damaging the poster, then cut it off to the size of the poster and leave it on.
  2. Lay a poster shipping tube on table that you can easily reach with your hands.
  3. Roll up your poster very carefully so that it is able to easily fit into the tube, and then place it in the tube. Avoid having the poster crash against the other end of the tube by not dropping it in.
  4. Put the cap on the open end of the tube and then seal each end closed with shipping tape.
  1. Mark on the outside of the tube which poster is in there with the black magic marker.
  2. Carefully set the sealed tube in a compartmentalized cardboard box to prevent the tube from being moved around.

Tips & Warnings

  • Make sure to put a detailed description of the poster on the outside of the shipping tube. You may think you will always remember which poster it is when you are first packing it, but months later you will not remember which poster is which without good descriptions.
  • Be very gentle with the poster when placing it in the tube and when moving it around while it is in the tube. You do not want the ends of your poster damaged by banging up against the ends of the tube.
  • Do not cover the poster in plastic before putting it in the tube. Plastic can melt over years of exposure to the heat and damage your poster.
