Product Highlights
  • 3 mil thick
  • Self-Locking Side Fold
  • Archival Material
  • Clear for Inspection of Contents
  • Protects From Dirt and Dust
  • Safe for Long-Term Storage

A 50 pack of Side Lock Polyester Film Sleeves from Archival Methods can prevent scratched or damaged original images. These sleeves are designed to be used with 4x5" film. In addition, oils from hands will not do films and negatives any good. It is, therefore, standard practice to always keep originals and even dupes in protective sleeves both for handling and long-term storage. Crystal clear Polyester sleeves allow viewing or inspection without removal and protect the image from dirt and scratches during handling and in storage.

Archival Methods believes that a good image should be protected and preserved from both human and environmental damage. These 3 mil protective sleeves are the perfect remedy. Use them with confidence. They should also be used with any one of a number of optional Archival Methods Storage Systems, i.e. Boxes and Containers.

Compatible with 4x5" film
Film sleeves are available in archivally safe, clear 3 mil Polyester
A self-locking side fold holds film in place; sleeves "unlock" to open completely for safer film removal without sliding image inside the sleeve
Choose Polyester (''Mylar D'') if the very highest optical clarity is required
Made in the USA

          The Polyester film sleeves are very clear and they feel solid. Good material. Much, much better than Polypropylene. Of course, they are more expensive.
          I use Polypropylene for caring undeveloped sheets and Polyester for archival.

            Perfect individual protectors for your 4x5 film. Much easier to spread all your negatives and organize them.

              Drop-in replacement for difficult-to-get Light Impressions Foldlock sleeves, albeit at a higher price. Does what I need: archival protection with easy, safe access to film originals--nothing more, nothing less.
