    Hi Martyn

    I would roll the paper up with the print facing outwards.

    When you buy it from the shops, it comes rolled the same way, but “tightly” wound.
    For me, I would never wind it as tight as that. I would wind it around a cardboard tube core.
    Once it is wound, I would then pop it into a clear bag, bubble wrap or even a bin liner to help protect the very outer part of the print from being scratched or become damp etc.
    Further again, put that into one of the cardboard boxes your vinyl comes in, for transporting it. it helps prevent it from rolling around or getting damaged.

    I’m the opposite and roll Self Adhesive Wall Paper, graphic in wards, so that when you hand the drop on the wall it lays more flat.

    When rolled graphic out, the bottom curl pushes the graphic from the wall. I think if it’s the paste style the paste straightens out the curl 😕 TBH I’m may be talking utter pish.

    always outside for me.

    @DavidHammond is it not going to want to curl off at the top and bottom easier than push out mate?

    Print out for me, I tend use the larger vinyl media boxes and let it loosely coil in there in a plastic bag.

    Hammond does it the other way cos he’s a weirdo 🤣
