Hi,
I want to file greeting cards in my scrapbooks but don't want them damaged by people touching them with dirty hands!!!

Any ideas on how I can protect them?

I was thinking of laminating them but would this be archivally safe?

I'd just adhere them to the page and use page protectors, which ARE acid free and archival safe,,

a better question might be, are the CARDS archival safe? Not that it really matters, unless you also plan to put photos on the page,,,,I mean if you want to save them, you want to save them I know I've scrapped cards (DS's 21st birthday cards, for instance!) But it IS something to consider if your cards are going on pages with photos!

Create pockets to hold them

I saved this in my favorites a long time ago but this is no public embedding

I'd probably go for the pocket idea, too. That way you could take them out to see them if you wanted but they'd be in a page protector, nice and safe.

I'd use regular phoot sleeves . . .I used this when I was a demo
