Michaels gets in on Jackson craze


IRVING, Texas Michael Jackson's death continues to dominate the news, and it seems everyone is getting in on the action. Even crafts retailer Michaels has found a way to tie itself with the King of Pop.

Michaels issued a press release offering tips on how customers could preserve their Michael Jackson memorabilia. The company advises consumers to mount photos and paper memorabilia on acid-free paper, use acid-free glue and tape to mount items and to use glare-free conservation glass to prevent fading caused by the sun's UV rays.

"Unprotected memorabilia such as concert programs, album covers and especially autographed photos will deteriorate quickly without proper preservation," said Michaels president and COO Shelley Broader. "Framing old souvenirs or new ones like magazine covers and newspapers will create personalized, treasured mementos for years to come."

Other tips from Michaels include using album cover frames and shadow boxes that are available in various sizes to protect and display smaller items such as ticket stubs, backstage passes and concert pins.
