I wouldn't recommend rolling up fiber based prints unmounted or otherwise! And if we're talking fine art prints, fiber is what we're talking about, by my reckoning.

Then, 1-ply archival barrier paper over the top of the window mat. I place the entire sandwich in clear polypro bags then cut cardboard oversize of the mat at least 1 inch around in 2 opposing directions of "grain" construction so that 2 layers cover both top and bottom. Then tape it up, paying attention to covering the open sides completely. The whole package sandwich consisting of 4-ply matted print, 8-ply window mat, and 4 cardboard layers is very stiff and unyielding. For multiple prints I use AirFloat StrongBoxes (expensive).
