Paper items can be extremely fragile. Properties inherent within the paper fibers can cause the objects to deteriorate on their own. Environmental conditions can wreak havoc on paper, also. Therefore, care must be taken when trying to maintain precious documents.

Unfortunately, many of our most important family records and heirlooms are made of paper. Birth certificates, funeral records, letters, obituaries, newspapers, and business documents are just a few of the types of paper items that have great value within our histories.

Several methods may be employed to safely preserve paper items, none of which damage the actual items. Great Plains Heritage has the experience and know-how to help you maintain your valued items.
