The Naked Binder

Posted by Janet on December 13, 2009

I’ve been reorganizing my bookshelf this week when I came across The Naked Binder website. I discovered them through their sister company, Archival Products, which listed these binders as eco-friendly and acid-neutral. Not only is the production process environmentally responsible, the archival quality of these binders make them appropriate for storing your artworks as well. The most impressive part, however, is how durable they are. These binders have endured a flex test of 50,000 times with barely any visible damage and survived a dishwashing cycle.

Is the standard size too small for artworks? No worries. Check out the 11″ x 17″ architect binder.

Also check out another sister company, Corporate Image, for more professional options.

The topic for my project is paper preservation for scientific illustrations, and I will be making a Flash interactive guide over the next few months based on what I’ve learned at the Smithsonian internship. Here is a┬ávery nice interactive website about the agents of deterioration–things that can harm objects, such as paper based scientific illustrations that my project focuses on:
