  • Help!!

    Not sure if i'm posting this in the right place.
    I've bought a photo album of the type that you stick the photos onto the page. I've never used this type before.
    Can I just stick the photo's in with prittstick??

    Do you meen a Scrapbook.
    If you do you need to get an Acid free glue. That's if ya want it to last forever and not degrade in 30 years?????. I think the Acid free thing is a bit of a marketing ploy myself. I've had things stuck in an old photo Album for 20 + years and they show no sign of damage yet.
    In the end it's personal coice.
    I back up all my pics on the computer and then burn on to cd. So I don't mind what I stick them in my scrapbook with.

      I got it from a craft fair, it's a photo album that has handmade paper pages in it i'm going to take some photos at a friends wedding and give it to her as a wee pressie so i don't really want it going all funny in a few years!!

        I'd go for the acid free adhesive option if only to put your mind at rest.
        Other than that, there are other options for attaching photo's to the page; eyelets, photo corners etc.
        Will you be embellishing the page as well, or just putting the photos on it?

          I would agree with the acid free adhesive, pritt stick really doesn't last very long at all before the pictures start falling out (this isn't from crafting as I make candles. This is from sticking all my lovely babies pictures into their lovely baby albums and I think they reached about 2 when they all started to fall out).

          All the best.

            Ok - acid free thingymajiggy, could you give me a brand name as i haven't a clue what i'm looking for!!?
            I may put other stuff in it but it's quite small, only fit one photo 6x4 on a page i've never done anything like this before i just thought it might be nice for them to get some 'different' shots of the day other than the 'posed' wedding album ones!
            After the wedding i will have 3 weeks to do it before they come back from honey moon so i hope i can do something half decent in that time!!

              I did a bit of searching on the web and I don't know if this would be what you are looking for. It is more along the lines of a tape.

                I think glue dots would work well they have a wide variety of choice when it comes to sticking things. A few die cuts like a wedding dress, suit, flowers etc would be nice little additions to the pages aswell plus they're flat so they won't make the pages stick out.

                Hope this helps.

                  I have a range of Dovecraft adhesives in a kit in my shop. Might be useful for you. All acid free.

                    Thanx - you're a helpful wee bunch aren't you?

                      Actually , Pritt stick IS acid free....

                      Unfortunately it doesn't last very long, & photos will start to detach from the page, so I would avoid it anyway.

                      PM me if you're still struggling, I'm happy to advise.
