Question Acetate or plastic sleeves

Does anyone know a supplier that carries acetate,or plastic sleeves (or envelopes) that you can slip art into rather than shrink wraping? I'm not looking for the heavy duty type for store display but the thin protective type that can stay on the art when its in flip bins or at outdoor shows. Also what are the sizes available? I'm looking for 12x16 and larger. Thanks.

Cool

Hi Susie,
Try Impact Images. Their packages are very clear and made for art and photography.
I'm not sure if they have a website, but the phone # is 1-800-233-2630. They'll send you samples and a size/price list. I think their prices are very reasonable.

Here's another option...

You can buy cellophane of varying thicknesses by the roll. If done nicely, I've seen artwork wrapped in cellophane. (the two free ends folded into triangles and neatly taped on the back, so from the front it does look just like shrink wrap) It's much more durable than shrink wrap, without having anywhere near the same cost as individual sleeves or envelopes might.

This is actually what I do with my prints when I need to ship them (since I don't ship with glass). I wrap the mat, the print, and the backing board in an envelope of cellophane and put it back into the frame. That way it's still protected even before they put the glass in.
