I’ve tinkered with aging paper a bit over the years, but when it came time to age some envelopes for my artifact storytelling project, I found that a lot of the tutorials focus on aging a single page at a time, and faced with a box of 250 parts, I needed to figure out some techniques to make everything run a bit faster. This instructable will show you how to age a stack of 30-50 pieces, and end up with consistent markings across the batch, in about 1 hour.
For this tutorial, I’ll be aging the preprinted envelopes from my project. They come from the printers bright white with solid blue borders. To make it look old, we’ll have to change some things.
