so if I am archiving them, just do the print onto foil, fold up the foil peace and put into a baggy?

Good deal bro...I have about a thousand. :wink:
Got mine cheap off Ebay.

You tape the slides together with scotch tape...all the way around...after the spores have dropped and dried.

Then put them in a dark cool place...in a sealed container.

They last a long time this way!~

you can use several slides taped together...for larger caps.

I have made prints that were larger than CD's.

Oh yea, and why does it have to be a dark place?
Aren't spores basically dormat?
If so, then how would light effect their longitivity, would the light somehow break it down??

SYZYGY sends on glass slides, the best advantage is, you can use one slide per couple syringes, and store the others untouched....

Back to the original question...if it still matters....I use foil.
