How to care for your wedding album

It's important to make sure you know how to properly take care of your heirloom wedding album so it will last for generations to come. The UV-protected photographic paper will last for 300 years, so let's keep your investment in great shape. Don't be afraid enjoy your album over and over, but following these few tips on how to care for your wedding album will make a big difference.

  1. Store your wedding album laying flat on the cover. Don't keep it trapped in a container somewhere, especially if you live somewhere humid. Let it breathe.
  2. Do not store the album where it may be subject to direct sunlight, extreme heat, humidity or moisture.
  3. The best way to view your album is to lay it on a clean tabletop or your lap while supporting the front cover with your left hand while turning the pages, and use the edge of the page for turning (don't use your fingernails to turn to avoid potential scratching).
  4. To clean your album use a soft, dry, lint-free cloth for any dust and fingerprints, while rubbing lightly in a circular motion.

With these simple care tips you can enjoy your wedding album over your lifetime!
