Reply To: Sticky ink

Are the documents themselves of importance; signatures on the printed papers, so on? Or is the importance in the intellectual content of the archive? If I recall, thermographic ink was used in photocopying so you don’t have the original. If the latter, how about scanning or photocopying the papers? Would need a barrier to prevent the inks from sticking to the glass, or clean the glass at frequent intervals.
