What's New ?
We recently added several new items to our shop, including:
New MYLAR SLEEVES
Why Mylar? Mylar is widely accepted as the best way to store and preserve paper-based collectibles. Mylar (Polyester) is acid-free, archival safe, and museum quality. In fact, the U.S. Library of Congress uses only Mylar and other approved Polyester films to preserve their paper documents.
Mylar will never yellow or put harmful materials into the item it is protecting. As an added benefit, Mylar has a superior brilliance and clarity that truly showcases your collection!
The Mylar sleeves are either 3 or 4 mil. Even though we now carry higher mil sleeves made from polypropylene, Mylar is a stiffer plastic than polypropylene, even at the 3 or 4 mil thicknesses. In addition, you will never find a clearer sleeve anywhere!
Here is a list of our new mylar sleeves (also check out our complete list of all Mylar Sleeves:
New POLYPROPYLENE SLEEVES
In addition to Mylar, Polypropylene is a great way to store your collectibles. It is an acid-free, PVC-free plastic that is safe for long-term storage. It tends to be less expensive than Mylar, but offers similar benefits. We have added the following polypropylene sleeves to our inventory.
Several new bags have been added recently. We now carry Ultra-PRO® Resealable Comic bags, and we also carry a line of Mylar Comic bags. See the complete list of added items below:
New TOPLOADERS (RIGID SLEEVES)
New items added to this category include:
New FRAMES and DISPLAY CASES
We sell a lot of frames to people wanting to display their collectibles, and we think these items will go over well with our customers:
- Record Frame - frame your 33 RPM record albums
- Card Frame - Black Resin - Holds 20 standard-size trading cards and other similarly sized items, such as ATCs (Artist Trading Cards), ACEOs, Pokemon Cards, etc. Also holds wallet size photographs.
In addition, remember that our inventory grows as a direct result of customer inquiries. If you don't see what you are looking for, please e-mail us with your requests.
