If you are wanting to place single sheets of paper into your portfolio or album, but don't want to punch holes in the paper, then this is an easy and very presentatble way of doing it.
These are plastic strips (or more precisily, polyester) that are acid free (they wont disintegrate into your paper) and archive safe.
They are very easy to use. On the left hand side, they've been pre-punched with a variety of holes that fit a universal number of differant filing mechanisms. On the other side is an adhesive strip. Peel back the grease proof protective paper and attach your page, simple!
If you are wanting to put together a presentation portfolio or family history album, we suggest that your 'score' the paper where it joins onto the adhesive end of the strip. 'Scoring' means creating a crease so that the page 'hinges' or bends over the edge of the polyester strip. It is done properly using a bone folder, but could also be done by just gently folding the paper over the strip and then creasing it (or alternatively creasing the strip over the paper).
If you are a photographer or designer and dont want to place your work in sleeves and pockets, then this is the answer!
We sell them in packs of 10, to order them please click here
Below is a selection of photographs that either we've taken 'on the hoof' or we've asked some of our customers to take, just to illustrate what they're like in use.
