How to frame new and old newspaper articles.

Posted by Brian Brady on Fri, Apr 06, 2012 @ 02:07 PM

Ever wonder Why Old newspaper articles turn yellow?

It turns out that the process they use to make the paper for newspapers is essentially just a tree grounded up into pulp and then formed. Some of the fibers and chemicals that allow trees to grow so tall (mainly the Lignin) will turn yellow when it is exposed to oxygen and sunlight! The whiter the paper the more resistant and less likely it is to turn yellow, which would explain why paper we usually use doesn't turn yellow

Lignin is found in all cellulosic plants and is the adhesive that holds their fibers together. Lignin is the second most prominent component of the wood part of the tree, with cellulose being the principal component. Other major components are hemicelluloses and solvent-soluble substances known as extractives.  Lignin is what gives trees the ability to stand and reach for sunlight. (reference from Flambeau River papers)

Basically it's why your old newspaper articles turn yellow after time.

Now if you decide to frame your article in glass this same process will occur. 
But if you decide to mount and preserve your new and or old articles with In The News Inc we use a different process.old newspaper aricles, frame newspaper article, custom plaque

Our Product

Every plaque is handcrafted by our designers using the industries latest state-of-the-art equipment. We’ll mount the original article to a ¾ inch wood base, which is then hand-stained, beveled, and set with trim according to your preferences.

Each plaque includes a personalized engraved plate that details your achievement in gold or silver lettering with a black overlay. The precise workmanship of our skilled team is evident in each and every finished piece. 

We use this process in order to preserve your document forever.  The "Heat Seal" is the key.  As you read previously the air and exposure is what wears down the acutal paper.  Once the lamination of the article new or old is sealed to the wood the document is no longer exposed to air lessening the papers yellowing to take place.
