These protectors are archival safe, and I search this brand out to buy them for many projects because they are very good at a low price
I prefer to store many of my office and home projects in 3-ring binders, so I go through a lot of sheet protectors. I’ve tried a lot of brands, and this is my favorite in the price range. Of course vinyl archival pages are much nicer, but they get pricey fast! I use these for family scrapbook albums, some recipes, to protect important letters, and a work sample portfolio.
Another advantage of lightweight protectors is that you can get more of them in a notebook.
They hold standard 8.5 x11 inch pages, load from the top, and are 3-hole punched for normal binders.
The sheets are clear, but with a matte finish, so they do not glare much when you try to read through them. See picture taken under a strong light. They do not pick up ink transfer from copied documents.
The binding edge seems strong enough; I haven’t had any of the holes tear out.
They are perfect for permanent storage of documents or pictures that you want to preserve, without spending a small fortune to do it. Always look for the words “archival safe” on the package if you want to protect papers.
