Makes the risk of contamination a little greater...

You should dry them before you store them.

i suspect that you are wanting suggstions as to just how the hell do you get a spore print dried out?

best would be in a warm stream of sterile air. pre heat an oven to about 250, let it cool down without opening it much, this way as the oven cools down to about 180 it will be full of dry sterile air. then with the door open, set the prints on a rack and allow them to dry in the draft created by the open door.

I make prints on alum foil put the foil in a tupperware container wiped out with alcohol snap on a lid (this stops the cap from drying out before all the spores drop)
(makes for very dark prints BTW) I come back later 24hrs. sometimes longer remove the cap and just lay the lid somewhat on "cracked" so the moisture can evaperate 24hrs. later the print is dry and i seal the foil and mark and date. The container is stored in a clean closet with little to no air movement BTW
PS i think that oven idea is a bad one but to each his(or her)own
