Large Preservation Kit for Larger Time Capsule Boxes
We designed our largest preservation kit for our larger sized time capsule boxes. This largest preservation kit for 2019 contains at least 285 important items in at least 40 different products. This year's improvements to the kit include more of the museum quality paper envelopes, more Corrosion Intercept materials, and fewer of the zip locking polyethylene bags.
Why a Preservation Kit?
The best place to start your time capsule preservation project is with a Preservation Kit. The K3 includes a variety of safe archival enclosures for time capsule and archives items. It includes the popular Corrosion Intercept bags, special papers, photo enclosures, acid free tissue, and other hard to find items that are most useful for time capsule projects. Use the Catalog Number if you need more supplies to order from our website. New for 2020 - we added more of the supplies you said you needed most! This preservation kit contains at least 40 unique products (339 items), plus at least 6 archival holding bags that you could also use in your time capsule, for a total of 345 archival supply items. All of our kits save you more than 20% over purchasing these items separately.
Archival supplies in our kits include archival papers, plastics, and tools to help you keep the items inside of the time capsule in mint condition.
Our Large Box Preservation Kit for Time Capsules contains a mixture of archival papers. Archival papers in the kit include sheets of Acid Free & Lignin Free Tissue, and Archival Paper Envelopes. All photo enclosures and tissues in the kit pass the PAT test for photographic enclosures. The Box Preservation Kit 3 Time Capsules includes special Archival Paper made of Permalife paper (rated for 300 years in storage). It comes to you in letter sized sheets perfect for photocopying or interleaving and in large sheets that work well for wrapping books and other items or simply as cushioning.Archival plastics include acid free plastic zip pouches in sizes designed to accommodate most time capsule items. Special digital photo sleeves make it easy to store those items. The long term storage MVP pouch is a special laminated pouch that you can close yourself with the special instructions included. You get some Corrosion Intercept pouches, too. They are designed to safely enclose CD and DVD media as well as metal items such as common lapel pins and coins and even ballpoint pens.
By the way, the kits no longer contain the stationery (you can order that separately
), and only have the pamphlets pertaining to the preservation of items.
Be sure to read the detailed instructions and description included with each of the products in the kit. Also, read the basic instruction leaflet for what to do with the items. The leaflets will also give you ideas on how to use the items in the Large Preservation Kit for Time Capsule Boxes. Popular and useful items in the kit include the time capsule inventory sheet, the our booklets: Preservation Hints for Time Capsules and Preserving Newspapers.
Pricing for our preservation kits saves you at least 20% compared with purchasing the items individually. For instance, in 2020 the list price of the items is $267.38. 20% off of that amount is $213.90. Your price represents a savings of even more than that!
Our preservation kits are upgraded periodically based on customer recommendations. Please send us your own feedback for future kits.This kit is recommended for time capsules over 2000 cu. in. in volume.
