Default What temperature

My DH is adding on to his shed. In this addition he is going to make a little room for my stamping room. The only problem I have is that it would not be air conditioned all the time. There will be a window unit in the room. My question is can my stamps and supplies handle a high temperature of around 90 and a low temperture around 40. Not that the room would be this temperature all the time, I would say the window unit would run about twice a week or more.

What do you all think.

I don't think the heat would be a problem but I'd worry about the humidity and the possibility of freezing temperatures. I could move into my dad's workshop but the humidity and freezing winters would be a problem. That and all the sawdust I'd have to clean out first!

I would say NO. What if the temperature drops lower & you have freezing temperatures? What if you encounter a heat wave & the temp soars over 100? If you cannot maintain a more even temperature, say 65-80 degrees, then I wouldn't store my stamps in that environment. The heat will cause the rubber to expand & the glue has a tendency to "release", causing your rubber to come loose from the foam. The cold will cause the rubber to contract & could become brittle over time. And if you are in a dry climate, you may suffer the ravages of dry-rot, especially with the stamps you don't use often.
