Is tracing paper acid free?

Postby sarah_2277 » Mon Jun 22, 2015 11:40 pm

I'm making a photo album and wondered if I could use tracing paper to put between the pages to stop the photos sticking together? Thanks

I am not sure if all tracing paper is acid free but you can certain buy acid free tracing paper, they sell it in Hobbycraft, or on Amazon/ebay. x

Acid free seems to be more expensive - wonder if it doesn't say then I wouldn't chance it.

Although I guess it depends how long you need it to last bet it will last for a number of years, and these days you always have copies of the pics.

What damage would it do if it wasn't acid free? I see all these things advertised which say acid free and I have no idea what damage they cause? I am not a scrap book person however. Can you tell? :)

It ruins the photos. Remember how those sticky albums made your photos all discoloured? That's the acid and lignin.
If you don't know what to do with new stuff, hide it until you do!
