Today's Free For All Friday on Philofaxy has me thinking about archival quality planners.
I use my planners for planning, but I like to keep them forever and look at them years later so it's important to me that my planner have archival quality paper. Unfortunately, it seems that not a lot of planner companies use archival paper.
I don't know a lot about paper and what makes it archival or not, but I know it's important for it to be acid-free/ pH neutral.
I also know this is not at all the same as chlorine-free. Chlorine-free means no chlorine was used in the paper's bleaching process. This is better for the environment but I don't know if it makes any difference to the archival quality of the paper.
The only three planner brands I know of that specifically are archival quality/ use acid-free paper are Moleskine, Leuchtturm and Quo Vadis.
**Edited to add: Paperblanks and Cartesio planners also use acid-free paper. The Success Choice planners use acid-free, archival recycled paper. Also I have confirmation from the company that Collins uses only acid-free paper in all their products.
Does anyone know of any other planners that are archival and use acid-free paper?
