RE: pt/pd mounting > gum framing

I'm certain buffered board has been shown to slow down image and paper
degradation due to acidity when print and mount are in a sealed or almost
sealed environment such as a frame (it is said that a small gap should be
left in the sealing tape to allow the frame to "breathe" and so avoid
condensation).  Unless, of course, a high pH is antagonistic to the print!

Anyway, this might be slightly off topic, but an article by Michael A. Smith
has a little bearing on this subject and will possibly be of interest to
those who are interested in these things:
