    Yes, is there a 'household' solution (inexpensive) or is there only the 'proper' way to do this protection? - David Lyga

    are all your prints standardized one size print, are they all one size ?
    you might be able to get a boatload of precut mats ( all acid free ) for not much $$
    then you just get acid free foam core .. cut it to the same size as the overmat
    .. get a few sheets of acid free paper ( copy paper is acid free sometimes )
    cut a whole bunch of small rectangles and fold them in the middle to make your acid free corner
    use lineco (or whatever brand you like ) linen tape, and glue the corners down with the print in the window
    and get your dickblick bags and you should be in good shape for not much money.
    i have a alto ez mat cutter i bought 25+ years ago ( 50$$ ) and i makes it easy to cut mats if you want to go that route
    you can cut them in anything, form matboard to foamcore to ... rag paper ... you can also
    get rag paper and a box cutter xacto and a ruler and cut windows that way .. a "museum sheet" of foamcore or 4ply board
    will run you about 5$ ( or used to anyways ) for a 32x40 sheet rag paper is cheap too and comes in big sheets.

    have fun !
