The way you store photoresist stencils has to do with the climate you live in: dry or humid. In a dry climate, place all pre-imaged stencils in re-sealable bags, limiting the exposure to air to keep them from drying out. In more humid areas, that may not be necessary, and you could store your stencils in file folders or empty photoresist boxes/pouches.
