Well, considering the restorer charges $500 to $1000+ to deacidify a $50 print, that's why I asked.

Some moron glued a print I have to some kind of card stock, so it's severely acid burned and I wanted to know. I'm not looking to "restore" it.

Putting it in an acid free folder isn't going to do anything to help it since it's being eaten away from the backside as it's permanently affixed to non archival, not acid free cardstock.

I could put it in a folder, then a year from now find the print in even worse condition since nothing's being done to reverse the chemical process currently taking place, so how's that for ravishing the cultural heritage of ukiyo-e?
