Default Burlap for Display Backing

Hello,

I had some left over Burlap from landscaping in my yard and thought it would make a nice backdrop to photograph some of my insignia.

I'm wondering though, would it be safe to leave insignia on the Burlap for long-term display?

Thank You,
John

Burlap unless treated properly can retain moisture
and mold and mildew. Nothing you would want next
to cloth items.

Hi Ed,

That's interesting - thank you for your reply.

Am I wrong in thinking that mold/mildew can be monitored? I guess my bigger concern would be acid. I'm primarily a document collector, so all that stuff is on acid-free backing.

Regards,
John
