Often many old family documents, papers, letters, certificates, books, photos and maps can already be torn from poor storage and handling.
To avoid further damage and to safely repair and reinforce these documents for preserving, acid free document repair tape should be used. Our repair tape is of archival and conservation quality and used by archives, libraries, schools and museums for document and book repair.
The tape has an acid free clear polyester film with a non yellowing adhesive and incorporates an "exclusive" Peel 'n Place Centering Strip®.
This consists of three peel off backing strips (see photograph). After removal of the thin centre strip you can then visually see where to apply the tape over the tear line. This provides far easier and more accurate application to your damaged documents. Once pressure is applied the tape is transparent.
We offer a complete document repair kit comprising of a roll of self adhesive acid free, non yellowing transparent low glare matt polyester tape 32mm wide x 3 metres with a real genuine bone folder/creaser (not plastic) to burnish the tape flat. This ensures a smooth uniform application and comes with full instructions for applying.
We also stock just the rolls of document repair tape in 32mm x 5 metres with full instructions for your repeat orders or if you already have a bone folder/creaser.
