I keep mine in acid-free/archival safe sheet protectors in a binder. It's stored in a dresser drawer which is suprisingly cold inside (no chance of humidity). I think this is one of the easiest and cheapest ways to protect your autographs if you don't want to display all of them. Just make sure that anything close to or in contact with your autographs is acid-free!

Hello. I recently wrote to the Being Human cast and they were kind enough to sign for me. The problem is that the only picture I could find to send them was a magazine clipping. Is there anything special I can do to prevent it from fading?

I would recommend polyester pockets.

I am just getting started with collecting autographs and was wondering if these sheet protectors are what I need. There is a link below. It says right on the package acid free and archival safe. Let me know if I am doing this right.

Photos: Store photos in acid free pages and store in binders. If u have them displayed used an acid free mat and uv glass to keep the ink from fading. The mat is to keep the photo from sticking to the glass and ruining it. Also I only use Adoramapix real photos for collecting autographs on. Inkjets fade and Sharpie does not stick to them properly. If a silver Sharpie is used on an inkjet it messes up the pen and sometimes the ink never really dries on the photo. It will continue to smudge and never really sticks to the inkjet like it would on a real photo. There's a bunch of different companies not just adoramapix but trust me real pictures no inkjets.

Anything big on display like sports equipment: Should be kept in uv protected glass or plastic. Ultrapro makes holders for every piece of sports equipment and offers UV protected options on all. If possible use industrial sharpies (see my thread) which don't fade like normal ones do then u don't have to worry about displaying anything even if the holder isn't uv protected. Also paint markers never fade and can be used if u have time to let them dry and have them properly prepped (they can be a pain and not very practical at group signings like training camps). Silver Sharpies work but on sports balls they are hard to write with all the bumps which is why people started using decocolor silver paint markers for them. I don't think silver Sharpies fade either or I have never seen on fade.

I have the plastic pockets to put my autographs in I am just wondering if the glue dots would be safe to stick the autograph to the pocket the link is below

Link: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Bostik-Sticky-G ... =glue+dots

They are removable and apparently no mess so what do you think?

I have tried White Tack and Blue Tack and they both leave a stain on the back of my autograph.

Plastic sheet holders are 95% all the same. As long as it says "Acid free" and "Protector" buy it.
Very simple.

Hi guys. I am a newbie at autograph collecting, but I have a few questions.

I read on there that keeping your autographs in ziplocks are a bad idea because they create moisture. I put them in ziplocks until I found the PVC free pages. Does the damage occur right away, or over time? It's been a few days with no problem.

I know the archival quality and PVC etc are generally the best, but will the plastic from these cases smudge the ink from the autograph or photo, or cause them to fade? I am also worried about dust and dirt getting on my autographs, which was why I wanted something that sealed. Does anyone have any ideas that could help keep the PVC pages clean?

Thanks guys. I hope I don't sound too silly. I appreciate the help!

Sarah

Overtime.

It's only been a few days. Like food, it doesn't start to go bad until some time has passed. Dont keep them in there . Go to CVS, Giant, or Walmart and get a pack. There is 12 in a pack so that should hold you over until you get more photos in the mail. You wanna be able to keep them OR even sell them in the future if you want to...and people aren't gonna buy them with things on the photos. Take them out ASAP.

I put a my autographs into photo albums that open like a book that wedding photos go in. Self asiseve ones. I have about 10 albums all full. It's the ones that go in and they have the see through thin paper stuff that goes over them and secures them so they stay in nice and secure. That's the best way for me.
