    Plastic sleeves for prints

    Hi,

    I'm mounting some photographs and would like to store them in clear plastic sleeves/bags. Does anyone know where I can source something like "Crystal Clear Bags" in th UK? My mounted prints are 50cm by 60cm.
    I have tried various googlings but haven't been able to find anything!

    Cheers
    Simon

    Have a look at http://www.silverprint.co.uk/ under Polyester Print Sleeves in Portfolio. 20x24" should be fine for 50x60cm though it may be prudent to check first.
    All the best

    I had a look at the Silverprint bags - and are they expensive!! £120 for 50 - I can order 100 from the US for $43 + postage.

    Cheers

    Hello Simon

    try here; http://www.conservation-by-design.co...ringbind5.html

    They sell them in packs of 25 and they are far cheeper than Silverprint. They are a good company to deal with. The only problem is that they do a minimum order of £50 before vat, or charge an extra £5 on top of the order. The pack size you need is £44.00, but I am sure you will find something on the site to pad your order out.

    Best

    Stoo

    http://www.crystalclearbags.com/ is the site I was looking at in the US.

    In all fairness, the bags and sleeves are very different products. The bags do look good for protecting mounted prints while the sleeves are more for folios.

    I know a few people that use the Silverprint product for protecting mounted prints, and a fine job they do to.

    I would offer the usual word of caution on imports, and that is to factor in posteage and duties when comparing prices. I've just paid duty on a lightweight item that I brought for £34 in the USA. Postage, VAT, and customs clearence charges have inflated this to £64 by the time I receive it.

    The other two products certainly bear a second look though.
    Regards Dave.
