Get to Know Us

Our Mission

To promote the preservation of the past, allowing history to endure for future generations.

Our History

We’ve been in business since 1896, so we have a long and (we think) fascinating history. Check out the Gaylord story to get a better idea of where we started and how we’ve adapted over the years in response to your evolving needs. It all begins with the Gaylord Brothers…

Our Products

Today, Gaylord Archival is a leading provider of preservation and exhibit products to institutions and individuals across the globe. In addition to archival-quality storage boxes, folders, sleeves, envelopes and more—many of which are handcrafted in the USA—we offer the largest selection of predesigned, customizable exhibit cases on the market. Why spend your time designing cases when you could be planning your exhibit? From idea to installation, partner with us for your next exhibition project.

Our Team

Our team—from the product managers who listen to your challenges to the manufacturing specialists who bring our products to life to the customer service and sales experts who help you find exactly what you need—is based at our headquarters in Syracuse, NY, working together to serve you better. We’re big enough to supply renowned cultural institutions and small enough to respond quickly to your needs, even if all you need is one custom box. We’re passionate about what we do because we’re passionate about what you do; you are the guardians of history, and we are dedicated to supporting the important work you perform. We are your Gaylord Archival team.

Our Future

Our founders built a thriving business by listening to their customers’ needs and finding innovative solutions to their challenges. That spirit continues to inspire us today, and we are committed to growing our partnership with you. Because we’re invested in our shared future, we’ve also made a commitment to be environmentally responsible. We’re happy you choose to do business with us, and we promise to continue earning your trust.
