storage for polymer plates

Hello! does anyone have any good storage ideas for polymer plates… like keeping them in a file cabinet? im doing business cards etc. and want to keep the plates on file but wanted to see if anyone out there had any strategies for staying organized? what do you stick to the back of the plates when your storing them?

I use the liner I take off the plate originally. Just keep it with the job as it goes through and use it to reattach to the open adhesive when you take the plate off the press.

Hi Clare,
I also reattach the adhesive. I live in a very dry climate, cold in winter, warm in summer, so each job is placed in a zip lock with the proof taped to the bag. All my plates are then organized + put into “tupperware” type containers and stored.
Good Luck + have fun. Denise
