Just want to pick the brains of you guys or gals here.
We all know printed photographs, both inkjets and emulsion printed, fade over time due to exposure to light and air.
Does anyone have any information on whether laminating a photograph, with those ibico laminators, will help to eliminate the second factor, air contact, and thus help to preserve the dyes from shifting or fading?
Also I have heard that certain synthetic materials have detrimental effect, ie, certain materials emit harmful gases which may actually cause the dyes to fade even faster. Does the material on laminating sheets have this harmful chemicals?
Any comments, advice, appreciated.
