Comic Con TIP #10 Poster Sleeve vs Poster Tube

Poster Sleeve vs Poster Tube:

You’ll likely walk out of San Diego Comic-Con with more than one awesome poster that you’d like to keep nice. There will be tons of freebies at the FOX both, both posters and poster tubes. That is, if you have the patience required to stay in line to get them…

Either way, how will you keep your stuff safe? I carry a poster tube for the freebies and non important ones, but I will buy a poster sleeve for each poster I get signed. It pretty much guarantees that my poster corners will stay safe. It also makes it easier to just set out once I get home. Otherwise, sometimes the posters in the tube will just stay in the tube. Perhaps for a few years. There are always vendors that will sell poster sleeve for somewhat reasonable prices. I’ve only been doing the sleeves for about two years now, but I’ll never go back.

Trevor began his forray into nerdom as a kid peddling his bike all the way to the local bookstore to purchase comic books. The boring superhero comics weren’t good enough for Trevor, he wanted the real ones. The ones with ducks. Now who's laughing while he’s on his way to cash in all those valuable Ducktales comics. Soon he’ll have his own money bin full to the brim. These days, to fill the time before the money bin construction completes (and begins), Trevor fills his time with photography, movies, television and comic book conventions. You can find his cosplay Meet & Greet mini-shoot and articles on this site as well as prints of his photographs being sold by cosplayers throughout the land.

P.S. Trevor converted to Marvel & DC comics and movies later on, so no heartburn on that one, right?
