We use high-density, acid free binder’s board to construct our enclosures.  Our PVA adhesive meets library binding standards for long term stability.  The trays are lined with paper that has a 3% alkaline reserve.  The custom fit of the hinge box helps protect items from exposure to light, water and harmful pollutants.

Titling

Specialized Support

We offer additional options to provide full protection for your valuable items.  The interior trays can be modified to support items that are too thin or are uniquely shaped.  Clasps can be added to provide gentle restraint for warped book boards and vellum bindings.
