Archival-Quality vs. Acid-Free Storage

Your memories deserve Archival-Quality Storage to last for generations to come. Some of our most treasured memories are held in materials that are fragile and susceptible to damage and deterioration: paper, photographs and cloth. Commercially available acid-free storage products being to degrade within just a few years, but truly archival-quality products provide protection that lasts generations. Acid and lignin occur naturally in paper products and cause chemical degradation. Archival-quality products are acid- and lignin-free. They may also contain a calcium carbonate buffering solution to neutralize acids and help your treasures last as long as possible.
