This is such a silly question, but I’ve been puzzling over it for about a week now:
I did a bad thing and fell in love with the velvet raptor line of photo albums. I hadn’t planned on a professional album anyway, and these are so ridiculously exactly perfectly my style. I adore them, I want one, I want to fill it up with lovely wedding photos… but there isn’t any glassine between the pages, the way there is in almost all of the other traditional albums I’ve seen. I would assume that means I can’t have photos on both sides of the pages, which I’m okay with, but would professionally-printed photographs be safe pressed up against paper?
Does my question even make any sense?

As long as the pages are acid free, you should be fine. If there is no plastic to cover the photos, I would not put photos face to face on the pages. I would only put them on one side; just so they don’t accidentally get stuck together. I think the photo people just try to scare you into how they want you to store pictures. Just look at the photos from our parents era and grandparents era, etc. Their photos survived just fine and so will ours 🙂

Haha, that’s exactly what I wanted to hear!
Also, randomly: I was just looking at your recaps and I clicked on your name to go to your ‘recent threads started’ to see the rest, and what popped up at the top of the page but my own thread title! I was so confused – I thought I’d ended up in my own profile by accident. Heehee.

If you use photo corners, you might even be able to put them face to face—if you think about it, the photo corners put a small bit of space between the photo and the facing page, so that they won’t stick, if that makes sense.
