We have spent tremendous efforts to maintain these cels, which made them even more valuable to us.
Maintaining an anime celluloid is an important part of keeping a cel in good condition for it to retain its value and sentimentality in the present and in the future.
To help you maintain your cel, we are sharing with you here some tips on how to store or frame your cel.
Don’t expose the cel to direct sunlight. Store it or hang the cel in shaded places.
It is recommended to use large A3 portfolio folders to store the cels.
When framing cels, make sure to use UV protection glass to protect the cel from harmful rays.
When framing cels, separate celluloid layers by adding a window mats between layers.
Store the cel vertically and avoid placing any items on top of it.
Don’t expose the cel to heat and extremely low or high humidity levels.
When storing the cel, ventilate the cel packaging by cutting the corners of the packaging.
When storing the cel, add nylon sheets in between layers to avoid cels sticking to each other.
