Cover Care: Printed covers show wear and fingerprints over time, simply wash with wet rag periodically, if not effective Windex has also shown to be effective on printed cases. DuraCover and ProCover should require minimal care, a wet rag should suffice in cleaning off dust, fingerprints, etc.
Lay-Flat: Sewn book blocks lay more flat with use. To expedite this process open and close and apply pressure to the spine every few pages or so. Smaller books and softcovers intrinsically lay less flat than larger, hardcovers. We, therefore, recommend purchasing large hardcovers when trying to maximize how lay-flat your book will be on the bench.
Adhesives: We recommend an archival, permanent adhesive for applying all printed matter. The industry standard for this application is Neschen Archival Tape.
Storage: Avoid contact with any aggressive solutions, store out of direct sunlight in stable, low humidity conditions. It is generally recommended to store laboratory notebooks in a secure, monitored location.
Guides: Please reference our user guides page for a library of printable guides as well as powerpoints and other teaching aides on lab notebook protocols.
