Want to shop where professional archivists get their archival supplies? And how about a 15 percent discount at the same time?

Then head to the Winter 2012 sale at Hollinger Metal Edge to stock up. To be completely honest, I get nervous when genealogists tell me they buy acid-free supplies at Walmart or other retail outlets that aren’t in the preservation business. Archivists swear by Hollinger, the leader in this field since 1945. If they say it’s acid-free, you can count on it.

Products I really like include:

File Folders

Flip-top Document Storage Boxes

Textile Storage (also great for flat oversized documents)

3-mil. Archival Polyester Sleeves

If you’ve heard my presentation on organization, you know that this is where you should be spending your storage dollar, rather than on elaborate binders, color-coded systems, and sheet protectors from discounters and office supply stores. Please store your original and vintage materials appropriately in trusted archival supplies like the ones from Hollinger. (And I have no financial interest in Hollinger.)

Sale ends March 15th!
