Default Sealed plastic bags source needed

Any good source for sealed plastic bags for collectors? Mostly for safe keeping of paper items in different sizes - small books, booklets, docs, soldbuchs, photos etc

Thanks in advance

I would not recomend keeping your items in a airtight bag. It can harm over time.

You can go to Office Max and buy archival sleeves that are safe. I even keep armbands in them along with all my paper.
Collecting Interests: Flags, anything Stalingrad related, interesting paper and original private photos showing flags and/or Hitler. I also like salty cloth items!

also,,IF your neighborhood has a comic book shop..

They have Mylar bags in a few different sizes. [ They are what archives use ]
They could probably order whatever size you need..
For a document or small booklet,,you want a resealable Mylar bag with a acid free backing board..
I put an piece on each side of the board,,2 pieces per bag.. Some change the board every 5 years or so......
