Sticky Art Leather Futura Wedding Album Covers

If you've arrived here, you are probably investigating how to fix your sticky Art Leather Futura wedding album cover which is probably from the 1980's or so, or you've had your album covered from heat, moisture, fire, as well as a variety of other damage types we've heard over the years. Most likely, your pages and photos are fine, but your cover is not. You want to know how to solve the issue.

Question: How can I remove the stickiness?
Answer: You can't. You will not be able to permanently remove the stickiness because it's a degredation process.

Question: Why is it sticky?
Answer: Your album cover is not genuine leather, but rather a material called Aristohyde which was very popular years ago. The material is now breaking down over the years. Yes, if you stored it in the heat or humidity, that may have accelerated the process, but it may have done it anyway.

Question: Is there a warranty?
Answer: There was, but Art Leather is out of business, so there are no more warranties or discounts for replacements. The warranty died with the company.

Question: What do I do now?
Answer: Follow the steps above for options to determine if you have a Futura or Permabound (Art Leather imprinted both names in many albums, so please use the measurement chart)
