How Should You Take Care of Your Vintage Remington Memorabilia?
As with different types of antiques, it all depends on the material used to make the€photo or ad. Metal and tin signs were common back in the day and there are paper and poster reproductions of the vintage signs available as well. Here are some tips on how you can keep your Remington posters, ads, and memorabilia intact:
- For metal signs and ads, you should use metal cleaners that don't affect decades-old paint.
- For vintage paper ads, you should keep it in an airtight glass case or frame so that heat, humidity, cold, and moisture won't damage the item.
- If you can afford it, have your item restored by a restoration specialist. Choose an expert on vintage advertising signs, if possible.
- Prevent pests like mice, termites, and moths from damaging your memorabilia by keeping your home or office clean. Fumigate, without the memorabilia in the room, whenever necessary.
