I'm going to frame a few old video game cartridges in a box frame for art and preservation.
I got the idea from a few posts I've seen online of others who have done the same:
I'm going use a sheet of foam and cut out the squares for the cartridges to sit in, within the box frame.
My one concern is the paper sticker-labels on the cartridges fading over time. They will be behind the glass frame permanently, but I don't want them to fade due to light exposure. My only idea so far for maintaining the labels is to not hang the frame in a location that will ever be exposed to direct sunlight. My only other thought is perhaps using special glass on the frame which reduces the light damage on the art inside? But I'm not sure if this even exists?
Is there anything else I can do to extend the lifespan of these cartridge labels?
