Art Leather Futura
Wedding Album Covers
from years ago
If you've arrived here, you are probably investigating
how to fix or replace your sticky Art Leather
Futura wedding album cover which is probably
from the 80's or 90's. Most likely, your pages and photos
are fine, but your cover is not. You want to know how
to solve the issue.
Are replacements available?
Answer: No. For years, we had an option to produce
a new cover that matched the features of older Art Leather
albums, but that option no longer exists. For that reason,
repair/recovering using your current album frame is
the only option.
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 of the cover material. Any temporary success
will be short lived.
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.
Is there a warranty?
Answer: There was, but Art Leather
is out of business, so there are no more warranties.
The warranties died with the company.
What do I do now?
Answer: Your style album will dictate your
options. Because replacements are not available, we
will need your current album (cover only) to use as
a basis for the restoration.
