Hahnemühle FineArt has announced the launch of a range of archive and portfolio boxes for storing fine art inkjet prints. The boxes are acid free and age resistant and have been designed in conjunction with museums and galleries in China for the safe storage of precious artworks and artefacts. The boxes will be unveiled in March 2013.
Made in Germany, the boxes are supplied flat packed to save space and can be quickly and easily folded into the completed box. The boxes come with an outer colour of Dove Grey, which is the favoured colour of museums and archival institutions, whilst the inside is natural white.
Available in four sizes to hold A4, A3, A3+ and A2 sheets, the boxes are constructed from a microwave board in a thickness of 1.6mm for A4 and a heavier 3.0mm board for the larger sizes.
Kristie Becker, Marketing and PR contact for Hahnemühle in the UK says “We often receive enquires from consumers who have had problems with their images yellowing due to being stored in non-archival and non-acid free environments. With the introduction of the new Archive and Portfolio Box Range, artists and photographers now have a protective storage solution for their precious images. As the boxes meet conservation grade standards they are also suitable for use by curators in museums and galleries for archiving images and documents.”
