Side Loading Print Sleeves

Side Loading Print Sleeves
  • Application

    Our Side-Loading Print Sleeves provide unmatched physical and environmental protection for your valuable prints. These optically clear polyester sleeves protect your collections from scratches and fingerprints during handling, and provide protection from dust and other pollutants while in storage.

    Due to supply chain issues certain sizes are out of stock until further notice. We have removed these items from the website temporarily. We apologize for the inconvenience. Alternative clear enclosures include 3-Sided Sleeves or Crystal Clear Bags, both made of archival polypropylene.

    There are 11 x 14 and 17 x 22 sizes on our Seconds Page. They might have a crease mark or smudges which is why they are discounted.

  • Features

    The 3 mil uncoated Melinex 516 (Dupont’s replacement for Mylar D) ensures that both the protective sleeve and adjacent prints will not chemically interact. Polyester is the clearest, most chemically inert of the plastics used for archival storage products. One-piece construction with a flap-edge seal provides easy access and secure closure. Sleeves are 1/8” larger in both dimensions so that standard print sizes will fit properly.

    Acid Free Card Stock can be used as a backing in these sleeves.
