Preserve all your old Newspaper clippings with us

Old photos on canvas and Newspaper restoration from Canvasdesign.old photos on canvas

Newspapers are still a major means of communication today. With a little care, those clippings that are important in your life can be around for many future generations. Perhaps the clippings were created and saved by your favourite maternal Aunt. Or they could provide the genealogical information you can glean from the names of parents listed in the obituary. Or they could be articles about some historical events that bear special importance to you. But newspaper clipping preservation is not an easy task. Place a newspaper in the sun for some time and you will see that it has turned yellow. Add moisture to the mixture and you get the perfect recipe for speedy disintegration of paper.
Newspaper are not made of archival papers. They are of low quality, made using untreated, ground wood fibres with impurities remaining after processing that include resins, tannins and lignin. Lignin is the most corrosive element present in the newspaper. Though not acidic itself, it can cause acidic reaction when exposed to heat, light, high humidity, or atmospheric pollutants. This reactions makes paper brittle, and it turns yellow with age. The ink used in newspaper is also not of high quality and seeps through the newspaper and stains other documents, books and photographs. When stored against another document, you will eventually observe a yellow silhouette of the clipping on the other document.

Chemical treatments (usually sprays or baths) can slow down additional deterioration, but sadly there is no way to undo the damage that has already occurred. Keep in mind also that some of these treatments will actually make the paper darker. In preserving your newspapers and clippings, you should decide what your objective is – preserving the content (information) in the clipping, the physical clipping, or both. If content is the only thing you want to preserve then you can just photocopy the newspaper on a commercial, acid free paper. We provide a better solution, as we scan the contents and use special quality paper and then preserve them on a canvas for you. This way, the information stays on forever and if the need comes you can hang them on your walls.
