Re: [BKARTS] FW: Pasted Chip Board



Dear MayKitten,

The best board we have been able to find here in the States is Oliner's
Platinum board, (800) 654-6373.  It is much harder than the current Davy
board and is acid free.  Given the cost of labor in hand making a book,
the extra expense of this board shouldn't be prohibitive.  It is harder
to cut, though, without a board shear.

I use it only for the backing for reciept books, and other products
where a cheap, ridged backing is needed. For books I have and
allways use Davey's Red Label board.

Chris,

It is acidic.  It also is far more prone to warp than solid
binder's board.
It gets brittle in a few years.

You can find it it at Brandywine Paper Co. and Rock-Tenn Co.

Pagan, Pagan, what are you finding?
Yours is the road that winds lonely and far,
Strange are the shadows that round you come creeping,
Still through the clouds is the glint of a star!
