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.

Yes.
Britney Spears==>> 6 #1 albums. 2 diamond albums. 8 platinum albums. 400+ awards. 200M+ records sold. Britney has sold over 45 million records this decade despite only releasing three albums. Globally, Britney has more #1 singles than any other female artist except Madonna and Rihanna. "Oops!...I Did It Again" by Britney is the 5th best selling album of the 2000s decade worldwide. Britney is the only female artist to chart her first seven albums in the top two of the Billboard 200. Britney has achieved at least one #1 album in 3 different decades (90's, 00's, 10's). Britney is the first solo female artist from the 90's to reach 1 billion Spotify streams. Despite NOT even being a single, 'Tom's Diner', ft. Britney , has become Giorgio Moroders best-selling digital track. 2015 Billboard Awards ratings reached a 14-year high, with numbers peaking during Britney's performance. She IS the princess of Pop.

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.
Please everybody Like my Autograph Page :D

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

Thank you! Which type would be best for storing 4X6 photos?
