Denotes heavy or bulky items or dangerous item. 

Products that are heavy or bulky are subject to special shipping considerations due to size and weight and
are likely to attract higher freight cost. 

Packing charge may also apply to picture frames or very large items.

Dangerous goods cannot be sent by Australian Post as it contains hazardous materials. Items that contain
hazardous materials are subject to special shipping considerations. Many times, these items cannot be air
shipped and therefore cannot be shipped overseas.

Acid free paper is great for conservation and archival work. For conservation grade, you can use acid free,
buffered paper made from wood-based pulp. For archival grade (also known as Museum grade), you can use
cotton rag paper made from cotton pulp.

Acid free paper are treated during production process with a mild base (usually calcium or magnesium
bicarbonate) to neutralise the natural acids occurring in wood pulp and it may also be buffered to prevent the
formation of additional acids (as may develop from the application of sizing). The bicarbonate is added in
excess, to supply the paper with an alkaline reserve to provide protection from further attack by acids
remaining in the paper or supplied by the environment.

Non acid free paper made from wood-based pulp that has not had its lignin removed turns yellow, becomes
brittle and deteriorates over time. When exposed to light and or heat, the molecules in the acidic paper will
break down even faster.
