Some stores have ready made acid-free folders or low boxes, but you could also buy some thick paper/board and fold them yourself. They should be able to advise you in this at the store.

Some of the late Japanese prints (Shin-hanga, Sosaku-hanga and others) are not woodblocks or a mixture of different techniques. It's a combination of factors that determines the value of a print, although some collectors prefer the "woodblocks". But these people overlook the fact that some of the finest pieces are stencil prints, etches or litos. This is confirmed by the growing popularity of Kuchi-e (prints added to early 20th century novels) which are litos in many cases.
