I'm pretty sure I started this topic in GWTW forum but since it's gone I thought I'd post it here now.

Soooo, how would you prefer to store your kites? Laying stacked on top of each other or on end side by side? Pros and cons for either? 👍

Short term? Agreed with Zuul, in a bag in my vehicle, ready to take out onto the field.

Long term, would be a double-check that all elastics are de-tensioned, then laying down somewhere I know they'll stay dry, cool, and otherwise protected.  But really, that's just a sad situation since the kite was meant to be flown.

Retired, mounted on a wall in a place of honor for all to see.

My biggest concern for storing is really for the seasons I don't fly. Either due to inclement weather or no wind. Concerns being really condensation possibilities building up on rolled up kites and laying on each other. I keep them in the closet in my room and I noticed last winter keeping my closet door shut with the heater on, it seemed kinda cold when I would go in after work to grab something. So I began keeping the door open instead to let some warm air in. 

Yes, I actually DO hang a few kites from the ceiling(chuckle). They make great conversation starters! I switch them out all the time. 👍

I store mine in bags, on end, in my craft room.  Each bag is labeled for what it contains - delta kites, dual line stunt kites, single line kites, vintage kites, art kites, kites I’ve built, low/no wind kites.
