Adhesives for U/S pics

Hi, I just stumbled upon this board and was wondering what is the best adhesive to use for the ultrasound pics?? The paper seems thermal and there is a note at my doctor's office not to laminate them. I was also thinking of just scanning them and using the ones I print on regular photo paper for the scrapbook?

Don't use u/s paper in a scrapbook. Scan it and either print it yourself or have it printed at a photo lab. Ultrasounds fade over time, and I'm not convinced the thermal paper is safe for the rest of the scrapbook.

yes ultrasound pics will definitely fade....

if you want to keep them for any significant amount of time then i suggest doing what pp says

you definitely don't want to lose those.

THANKS!! I was going to put them in one of the small Creative Memories books and then print out some for my larger book, but when I touched the paper, it felt like that old-fashioned fax paper that fades or turns black. Not due until August but I've had 3 ultrasounds already so I want to start scrapping - I've left it alone for a while and want to get back in the swing of it.
