LINEN BACKING

What is it?

Linen backing is a method commonly used to conserve vintage posters. It also serves as a base for restoring any poster problems such as fold separations, missing paper, pinholes, stains, missing color, wrinkles and bends, damaged fold lines, etc.A linen backed poster is also more aesthetically pleasing because the appearance of fold lines is eliminated and the poster stays perfectly flat which is ideal when framing. This process is reversible and considered museum quality.

Spot Bleaching What is it?
Spot Bleaching is a process by which I use a strong pin point bleach solution to rid stubborn foxing or stamps. Personally, I recommend to keep Censor stamps as they are an interesting and important part of the poster and its own history, unless of course they are on a intrusive spot i.e Marilyn Monroe’s face
