Archival Paper

What is Archival Paper?

Archival Paper is a type of paper designed to resist deterioration and yellowing, ensuring long-term preservation of printed materials.

It’s crafted to be acid-free and lignin-free, which prevents it from yellowing or deteriorating as quickly as regular paper. This makes it an ideal choice for documents, photographs, and artworks that you want to preserve for long periods. Typically, archival paper boasts a lifespan of 100 years or more under proper storage conditions. It’s a go-to for museums, libraries, and anyone keen on maintaining the integrity of their prints over decades. While I don’t have specific statistics on advertising brands using archival paper directly from recent data in my training set, its use in marketing materials aimed at longevity—such as high-end brochures or certificates—highlights its value in maintaining brand quality over time.
