Preservation

Bottom line: photographs are sensitive. Whether you spent countless hours developing the film and prints, or endless minutes editing them on photoshop, it's important that after your work is printed, it's also protected. There are numerous factors that go into what may damage your prized possessions; heat, humidity, and pollution to name a few.

Although, we may not go in-depth about what the temperature of your room should be based on how you printed your photo, we will give you the down-low on how your portfolios & archival storage should measure-up.

Storage should be the physical barrier between your photographs/art, and any potential problems it may encounter that may result in scratches, smears, etc. Believe it or not, most damage that occurs to a photograph in it's lifetime happens when improper storage is utilized.

Enclosures, or portfolios, should include (but are not limited to) the following features:

  1. Be acid-free
  2. Be lignin-free

Luckily, our portfolios not only feature the above points, as well as include (but are not limited to) the additional following features:

  1. The use of PH neutral paper & binder boards
  2. Reinforced spine hinges for durability
  3. Heavy exterior coating for an added layer of protection
  4. Metal reinforced corners
