Rag bond for thesis paper may last a looooooooong time, but if it doesn't say 
acid-free, it isn't.  We use good bond paper for our labels due to budget 
constraints, but we have still seen some yellowing over the years.

I'm wrong) that this is essentially equivalent to the>thesis bond sold in 
"better" office supply stores so many will have a local>(perhaps more 
economical) source.
