SAVE 20% 5 PACK $29.50 23.60 Add to Cart
Save Even More! 100 sheets w/ FREE pH Test Pen $61.90 39.90 Add to Cart
 
Acid and Lignin-Free and ten sheets per single package. Perfect for wrapping and supporting garments, textiles, keepsakes, collectibles and toys. This nonbuffered museum quality tissue is pH neutral and is safe for ALL items and all textiles. Cut to size for small items and for interleaving papers, scrapbooks and photographs. Unlike buffered tissues, this tissue is safe even for older photographic prints and methods (including cyanotype, albumen and dye transfer). Will not cause color shift of vegetable dyes. Non-tarnishing for diecast, artifact and silver storage. Search our blog wiith the word 'buffered' if you would like more information. Unlike dry-cleaner and gift grade tissue, this tissue is actually produced for archival and conservation applications. While other 'archival' tissues may be acid free, they are sometimes not lignin free and thus not truly archival. Tissue passes the ANSI P.A.T. (American National Standards Institute Photographic Activity Test) and the TAPPI T444 Silver Tarnish Test. Packaged in a large resealable and reuseable archival sleeve to reach you in active condition. 20 X 30 inches. In Stock - Usually ships within 1 - 2 business days

SAVE! 5 PACK $14.50 11.60 Add to Cart ($2.32/10)
 
This is the support/stuffing tissue included in our Preservation Packs™ (see bottom of page). We are now offering it for separate purchase in response to customer requests. The softer, lighter weight makes the tissue perfect for interleaving prints and photos and the size is terrific for wrapping ornaments, small artifacts, smaller linens and silver. It is also, of course, ideal for lightly stuffing bodices and sleeves, hats, purses and shoes. In Stock - Usually ships within 1 - 2 business days

pH Test Pen $2.90 Add to Cart
 
We routinely test the pH levels of our tissues and of our sleeves to assure the highest quality possible. Recently our supply of pH testing pens 'dried up' . Waiting for the delivery of a fresh case, we tried to find some locally. It was astonishing to discover that even our local megacrafts and fabric/craft stores no longer carry them! It seems that they were having large quantities of 'archival' scrapbooking supplies returned because they were not testing in the acid-free range! It was an easy decision to add them to our line. You can use this pen yourself to test all materials (even ours!) that will come in contact with your stored treasures. It's a felt-tip pen with indicating solution. Just draw a small line or dot on your storage material and check the color. Blue to purple is good (purple is best). If your line or dot turns green or yellow, or is colorless, the paper, tissue, cloth, box or bag is acidic and should not be used for storage. No need to remember, it's right on the pen!

Pure Cotton Conservator's Gloves pair $2.90 Add to Cart
SAVE! 5 PACK $14.50 11.60 Add to Cart $2.32 ea.
 
100% cotton conservator's gloves afford safer handling of photographs, artifacts, vintage linens and laces and other heirlooms and collectibles. Our skin contains oils and acids which, if transferred to the surface of items being handle, will attract and hold dust and dirt. (I cringe at least once during every episode of American Roadshow.) One size fits most. The gloves are hand washable . Lay them flat to dry. If a smaller size is desired, then machine wash and dry. Gloves are also fabulous for polishing stemware, flatware, ornaments and gee-gaws of all kinds. Order an extra pair or 2 for these uses. In Stock - Usually ships within 1 - 2 business days

Contains enough highest grade fresh silica gel (50 grams) to protect a 4 cubic foot container. Hard beaded desiccant is packed in an unbleached cotton muslin drawstring bag. When the blue beads turn pink (we mix 80% white to 20% blue indicating gel), regenerate in either a microwave set on LOW or a standard oven set at 275° F. Complete instructions are included. It's that simple. Use it over and over! Great for storage boxes of all kinds. Can also be used in tackle boxes, safes, laptop computer cases, camera cases, on boats - anywhere moisture is a problem. The more airtight the container - the longer between recharges. We developed this product in response to difficulty with previous products. Many of our customers experienced melting plastic or warping metal canisters when recharging - even when manufacturer directions were followed carefully. We offered these customers drawstring bags as a work-around until we could find a better product. The customers liked the bags so much, we decided to offer the product in this form - and for up to $15.00 less than our competition charges for just 40 grams. Product ships in a heavy-duty archival barrier zipper bag - your assurance of arrival in active condition. Muslin bag is 3 X 5 inches. In Stock - Usually ships within 1 - 2 business days
