I was in a local scrapbook shop and they had these cool brown paper and chipboard covered 6x6 albums 40 pages hole in the front cover for a photo. Screw posts. Very me. Except I got them on clearance and I have no idea who made them. Or if they are acid free.

And I know brown paper can yellow photos if it's not acid free. So anyone know the type of album I'm talking about? What are the odds they are acid free?

I'm googling 6x6 albums and they had American crafts 6x6 albums for $5 USA a few weeks ago. However I don't like D ring albums if I knew the normal cost I would have grabbed them too. ooops. Oh well.

Do you have a ph pen? You could test to see if they are acid-free.

I had a ph kit. Couldn't find the pen. It didn't work on paper. Re the pen there any in the superstore so I know what to look for?

I think my pen is American Crafts. I got it at the Dollar Tree years ago.

I tested it on a few things that I knew were acid-free and not acid-free, and it seems to work accurately.

Being that you got the albums in a LSS I would imagine that they are acid free. Seems like it would be counterproductive for a LSS to sell something that wasn't acid free.

It's a craft, sewing and Lss.

I'm hoping it's acid free but I never assume.
And all it had on it was the clearance sticker.

I am hoping to get into another branch soon though hopefully if they have them I can get the brand name.

I should have just bought the American crafts albums when they were on sale.
