I have quite a few flags and bags. I don't have the means of storing them all flat. Most of them I store folded as I received them or occasionally I'll refold or roll larger items like flags.
But no matter what, things get creased.
1. Is there a way to avoid creasing when folding something? I've heard you put acid free paper in between the folds but I don't understand how this works against creasing.
2. Is there a safe way to remove existing creases? Mainly on WWII era flags, bags (canvas bags, denim laundry bags etc)?
And I guess a third question. Is there a way to store items like this without creasing that is relatively easy? I know you can wrap flags around tubes but that just isn't an option for me right now and what I need to store.
Thanks so much!
