Housing & Framing

Paper and vellum are inherently delicate materials that can be endangered by moisture, pollutants, light, temperature fluctuations, pests and mishandling. These environmental factors can result in sever loss and degradation of the support material and media. The best clamshell box can provide a micro-climate from which a rare book or family album will be protected from seasonal changes in temperature, air pollution and light damage. And by sealing a work of manuscript page into a passe-partout the normal moisture fluctuations will not reach the famously hygroscopic material. 

By supplying archival materials and fitting the object ourselves we can mitigate any further damage and protect the object for future generations.
