Quick Tip Tuesday - Choosing Cardstock

 Most cardstocks and craft papers available now are lignin  and acid free, but, you want to double check. 

Why?  Lignin is a wood product that is often found in unpurified wood-pulp paper.  Over time, lignin will cause discoloration of photos and papers.  Acid will cause your cards or scrapbook papers to disintegrate over time.  Always opt for archival paper that won't discolor or break down.
