Why make paper made from stone?
If something its written in stone, it is written forever. The ancient Sumerians chiseled writing into stone tablets that have lasted 3,000 years. We like stone for its permanence. Stonebook pages are made from 80% limestone powder and 20% high-density polyethylene. The feel is similar to tissue paper, yet the pages are waterproof, resistant to grease and smudging, and can be washed. Traditional paper is made from wood pulp, which can decompose in as little as two weeks. The Stonebook is vastly superior.
How long does the Stonebook last?
The Stonebook is virtually indestructible and made to last a lifetime. However, no security solution is completely invulnerable. If Stonebook pages are left open and exposed to continuous sunlight, they will decompose after a few months. If closed, the Stonebook can withstand 12 to 18 months of sunlight exposure.
I’ve recorded my data with ballpoint pen. What happens of the ink washes away?
Ballpoint ink is very unlikely to wash away. But rest assured. When you write into your Stonebook, you’re actually making permanent indentations into the pages, much like the Sumerians and their chiseled stone tablets. Stonebook paper is slightly malleable. The pressure from your pen tip creates permanent etches into the stone paper. This information can be recovered by scrawling a black pencil or crayon onto the reverse side of the page.
Is the Stonebook fireproof?
No, the Stonebook is not fireproof. However, the resin that binds with the stone in Stonebook pages has a low melting point. For superior protection, it is recommended you store your Stonebook in a fireproof safe.
Can I bury my Stonebook underground?
Yes. Stonebook pages are non-biodegradable, impervious to paper-eating insects and metal detectors (an advantage over metal wallets). However, if you plan to bury your Stonebook, it is recommended you use ballpoint ink. Ghost Pen ink is not suitable for this application.
How is the Stonebook more environmentally friendly?
Stonebook pages are made from limestone (a waste product from quarries), while the plastic binding agents we use are derived from old plastic bottles, maize or sugar cane waste. In addition, Stonebook paper is naturally white, which eliminates the need for bleaches. This sustainable approach to making our product is superior to recycled paper, which requires significant energy, water and chemicals to produce.
Is Ghost Pen ink invisible?
The concept is very similar. Ghost Pen ink is visible under UV light and certain other lighting conditions. Under normal indoor lighting, Ghost Pen ink cannot be seen by the naked eye. This makes the Ghost Pen ideal for recording crypto keys, seed phrases and passwords.
Is Ghost Pen ink permanent?
Ghost Pen ink is designed to be permanent. However, extreme conditions can impact its longevity. If always kept indoors at room temperature, Ghost Pen ink should last the lifetime of the paper it’s written on. Essentially, Ghost Pen ink does not expire.
