What Factors Should You Consider When Purchasing Page Protectors?
When shopping for page protectors, there are a few different features to consider. Learn more below.
Sheet Protector Design
Page protectors are usually clear or tinted so users can see the papers inside without having to remove them. Colored sheet protectors are designed to keep light from fading printed pages or items like photos and old newspaper clippings that are stored in bright locations for long periods of time. These items are usually vulnerable to light and need extra protection. Many plastic sheet protectors have holes along the horizontal edges to fit inside binders for safekeeping. The holes have a coating of thicker plastic, keeping them from tearing when you flip through the binder. For document protectors without holes, users can store them safely in filing folders.
Page Protector Size and Thickness
Choosing the correct clear sheet protectors depends on the side of the pages that need to be stored. Most page protectors are letter or legal size and fit printer paper with a little space around the edges. There are also smaller options or sheets with multiple pockets to hold business cards. The thickness of the plastic sheet protectors has an effect on user experience. Thin sheet protectors are lightweight and take up little space in binders or folders. Thicker sheet protectors provide extra protection and can hold more pages in a single cover. Some document protectors are large enough to hold up to 50 papers stacked together, ideal for larger-size hanging folders and other file containers.
Specialty Sheet Protectors
Specialty sheet protectors are designed for different shapes and sizes of documents and forms for everyday work or personal use. Some specialty page protectors have special notches in their spine so you can attach or remove the sheets without opening the binder rings. The special notches keep the sheet in place in the binder, and the convenience factor can make a major difference in fast-paced classroom settings where organization is key. Specialty sheet protectors are also available as heavyweight panoramic sleeves with a center-loading, fold-out design for large documents like charts, ledger prints or spreadsheets.
