Long-term storage of framed photographs

A friend asked me for advice, I told her I didn't know the answer but I knew who to ask. Thanks in advance for any ideas!

"Advice pls. I have ended up with all the old giant family framed pics Mom had. I must shove them in my attic. The heat and possible moisture - not to mention the critters we pretend are never there - will not be kind, I know. But, no one wants them. I can't trash them. Is there anything I can wrap them or store them in that MIGHT be better than nothing?"

Re: Long-term storage of framed photographs

Probably best to remove the photographs from the frame and store the frame seperately if needed.

I think it would be preferable to store individual prints within an archival paper folder and the folders within an archival box such as Solander

Acid free paper and boxes
