Albums And Frames / December 8, 2018 / Alondra Washington
It is important to consider the purpose of a given photo album before beginning to put it together. If an album is meant to serve a short-term purpose, it can be made differently than if an album is intended to be a long-term family heirloom. The major concern is with the acidity of papers, plastics, and adhesives used in putting together the album. The PAT (Photographic Activity Test) was designed to help label products as safe for use with photos. Acidic tape, glue, and other products can destroy photographs over time, so it is best to use acid-free products if the album is meant to last. It is also necessary to use paper that is archival quality. This simple choices can help photographs last a long time for future generations.
Leather Albums are Heirloom Quality.Elegant leather albums are a perfect choice for weddings, graduations, births, anniversaries or any special occasion. Leather's long life makes it the perfect choice for a family heirloom that will be passed down from generation to generation. The extra cost is well worth it. A leather album also makes a great gift. You can have the album engraved ahead of time or leave it blank for the recipients to have engraved with something of their choosing. Either way, a leather album is a classy statement and a great way to preserve memories.
