Drawing Resources # 15?!

Hello everyone!,
  Today's post will discuss how to protect your drawing pads/paper that you have not used (yet).

Are you afraid that the pads/paper exposure to the sun may somehow ruin your unused pads/paper? Or are you concerned with bending or ruining your pads/paper? Well, there is a solution!
