Gosh, i woke up this morning after a nightmare about my LOs destroyed.
Does anyone know if chipboard Thickers are archival safe? How about the foam ones? Vinyl?
I am also worried about pop dots, wondering if they are going to disintegrate fairly quickly. Does anyone know?
The general rule is that if it doesn't have a smell, it's safe. Obviously wood and certain plastics have odors, so you would want to save those items for use in projects that don't demand archival standards.
One of the advantages of the digital era is that it's exponentially easier to duplicate photos, so archival issues are not as pressing.
