I got a bunch of K-Ology chipboard for christmas (6 sets) but it doesn't say acid free. Does anyone know if it is?

Not ALL chipboard is created equal!!! I don't know about that specific brand, but usually if it doesn't say it, it isn't. You can buy acid kits/tests at craft stores, I think. That, or you can buy an archival spray to make it safe. You can alway email the company as well. HTH!

Buy yourself a ph tester pen to check it. Some chipboard is acid free, some isn't. The pen is very handy for checking lots of things. HTH!

Thanks I will spray it, its fom K&Company but it doesn't mention scrapping on the package. Now I have to get a coupon and hit M's. I was doing so good at staying away from there. I will be in trouble if they ever stock spellbinders.
