non acid free..... = acid
acid free = no acid
.... what are you asking for?

I'm sure she means acid-free.
You can get it from that paper shop in Citylink. Their stuff is acid-free. I bought their black paper and vellum paper (translucent) separately to create my own album/booklet. They also sell the photo corners.
Actually, there are 2 shops in Citylink. "Bookbinders" has their paper made in Sweden (more expensive), "Prints" makes it locally. Prints also has stores in Paragon (2nd or 3rd level - between paragon and the extension) and Centrepoint Shopping Centre.
Or you could try Spotlight (but they have less variety).
If you want pretty acid-free patterned papers (used for scrapbooking), you can check out 'Creative Hands' in Ngee Ann City (4th floor, near the childrens clothing stores). Actually, theres quite a few other places, so let me know if you're really interested.

You can also consider Light Impressions, a huge online vendor of archival materials. Their papers pass the P.A.T. test, whereas much of the acid-free stuff sold here does not (or rather has not been tested and certified).

I used to be a volunteer at Heritage Conservation Centre under NHB, and all of their material are all archival friendly.
Here's a list of their suppliers, you may be interested to check it out with them. Not sure of the pricings though.

Anyone know where I can get my photos laminated (photo laminations) Somewhere not so EX.
Some places quoted me $4.00 for a 4R photo. Too Ex liao..

Pardon me but what's the difference between the "acid-free" album
and the traditional sticky album ?
14th August 2004, 10:31 PM
Traditional sticky albums are NOT acid-free. They are extremely acidic/corosive to photos. That's why most of my baby photos have since faded. Acid-free simply means it doesn't contain the acidity that is most harmful to photos.

BORDERS also selling ready made acid free album.
22nd August 2004, 08:34 PM
I just went Arts friend today and they told me they don't have any acid free albums...only acid free paper but the ones I checked out don't look thick enough like those I saw in Prints. However the price of the bound albums at Prints quite ex (about $50++ for a square album with tracing paper in between). Anyone got any other suggestion? I have about 400 photos and would like to stick them into bound (can be ready made or I bind them myself) black acid free paper. Thanks!

The other day when I was at Arts Friend, I noticed some black ring bound journals (near the counter). I figured this must be what simonsng was talking about. It didn't say acid-free anywhere on the journal, so I asked one of the guys working there, and he said that they are acid-free. I said, how do you know, and he replied, this brand always makes acid-free. So I don't really know if they are or not, but I decided not to take my chances...
anyway, hope my pm to you is of some help. Let me know if you need those websites...
22nd August 2004, 10:01 PM
Thanks shortcake for your pm. Actually I saw those albums near the counter too. They are ringbound and quite inexpensive (<$30) but the guys at the info counter said no, they don't have acid free bound notebooks. So think will check out more online resources like azone which canoised suggested...
