acid free in German is: Säure befreien (courtesy of online translation I hasten to add, didn't concentrate to well at school

does it mention archival : Archivalisch ?

not sure if photo will be safe with an acid free matt as not sure if chemicals would bleed through. I know you can get those photo pockets that you could slip the photo's into before adding to page to be on safe side.

sorry couldn't be of anymore help.

btw, can you order one of those pens over the net and use it? only thing being you'd probably have to buy the paper first or risk being thrown out of the shop for drawing on their stuff!!

I've just received my Cardmaking & papercraft mag & there was a supplement with it called card craft plus in it was a pen called Acid Identifer £2.70.
I don't know how the shop keeper would deal with this but it tells you to stroke the pen over the product you want to test on the back or in a small corner.
If it goes yellow it is high in acid and is not suitable fo scrapbooking.
If it stays blue it's acid free.

thats what i was thinking!! why so much? then I thought maybe they had a . before it but then that would be too little.

scrapping paper has a postage is €4,10 plus .50c.

could they have made an error and meant 5euros??
