Finally! My time to shine.

For quality paper, adhesives, and clear coats, source out your local museum quality archival supply stores. In Canada, we have one called Carr McLean https://www.carrmclean.ca/

You want acid free, lignin free, buffered paper. Even your inks are important. There's a myriad of adhesives that are great at long term preservation. All will contribute to ensuring slowed deterioration and an absence of yellowing.

Take it a step further and place UV inhibiting films over it.

Keep in mind what your substrate is for the base. Woods off gas, but not all woods off gas equally, and some woods will be far better than others. Plastics also break down.

While you're there, pick up some gold standard CD's to store your digital files on for long term preservation ;)
