Why preserve old newspaper articles with laminated plaques?

Can you relate to this statement, "I am going to finally do something with all of those old articles?" 

Many people like to keep copies of old newspaper articles, whether for personal sentiment or historical reasons. One way to store these pieces of newsprint is in a box or similar container.

While this is a good way to keep them out of sight, it's not a good way to preserve them. The boxes can become unorganized and messy, with piles of newspaper sliding all around and becoming torn.

Boxes of newspaper articles are also susceptible to damage from fire, water, dust and insects.

One of the best ways to preserve your newspaper clippings is by Framing them with custom wood plaques to ensure they will last for years.

For newspaper clippings that feature a story or picture of you or a person close to you, framing is a great method of preservation. A frame allows the newspaper clipping to be safely preserved. It also allows you to display the item for years to come.

It also serves as a way to honor something special about someone that you love. Just as there are many types of clippings, there are many types of laminated plaques you can choose.

These plaques range from a single newspaper article and increase in price and design by the number of pages you add.

You can build plaques and collages that hold several pictures and old newspaper articles.

Once you determine what size wall display you need to hold your newspaper articles and photos, you must pick out the type of frame and finish. There are several types of wood stains available for frames including whitewash, mahogany, ebony, walnut and natural.

You can find a wood stain to match almost any decor. Next, you should choose a trim color that accents your article and its surroundings. You'll also need to decide how you want your articles and photos laid out on your display. And finally, you may also choose to have your display engraved with a special message.
