Stacking the woodblocks according to the label is necessary to locate the woodblocks. Proper stacking and care should be made while using these precious artifacts. It is not recommended to stack one another on the top since there is high risk of damaging and breaking the scripts when taken out of the shelves. Therefore, woodblocks should always be stacked in a horizontal standing position. If possible, a cartoon or foam sheet cut accordingly should be inserted between the woodblocks to protect the engraved scripts.
