If you’re a puzzle collector, then you’ve probably spent hours trying to find the perfect way to store your puzzles. There are many different ways that people use to store their puzzles, and we’ll discuss some of them below. The main thing you need to keep in mind is that whatever storage solution you choose has to be practical as well as aesthetically pleasing. So without further ado, here are tips on how to preserve and store jigsaw puzzles!
Puzzles are great because they can be stored compactly, but you should keep them in a case so that the pieces don’t get lost. A puzzle’s box is usually not enough to protect its fragile pieces from getting bent or damaged during storage and transport. There are many different types of cases to choose from – some have compartments for each individual piece while others consist of an elastic band with loops on it into which all the puzzles’ parts fit tightly when zipped up.
Whether you buy your own custom-made case or use something unconventional like a photo album, make sure the material doesn’t scratch any surface of the puzzle as this would lead to paint chips over time.
Moreover, if the case is made of a material that could heat up or cool down in different environments, make sure it’s not touching any part of the puzzles.
Alternatively, you may want to store your puzzle under bed sheets as long as they are clean and free from dust particles. This will keep out light which can damage pieces over time.
Puzzles should also be stored flat on their backs with all faces showing so that there is less strain on its fragile internal structure. The best way to do this is by storing them side-by-side rather than stacking one atop another – again for protection against paint chips caused by rubbing together when stacked vertically. If you use an album for storage, put each piece face up, with a blank piece of cardboard between each puzzle so the pieces don’t rub together and get damaged.
Puzzles are fragile, breakable objects that should be handled delicately to avoid any damage which could affect its structural integrity and ability for use in play later on down the line. Make sure it’s not touching any part of the puzzles or other items when you’re storing it properly. Don’t touch the pieces – you don’t want to get oils from your fingers on them and cause future damage.
