Protecting your artwork shouldn't be a time-consuming, cumbersome, and expensive process. Now it doesn't need to be!
Simply slip your mounted or unmounted art into a Krystal Seal Bag, fold over the resealable flap, and you're ready to display or store your art in a print rack, flat file, portfolio, or storage box — while protecting it from dust, dirt, and fingerprints.
The crystal-clear, acid-free, archival bags are made of 2 mil polypropylene. Sizes measuring up to 13" × 19" (33 cm × 48 cm) have a ¼" (6.4 mm) tolerance on both sides. Sizes measuring 16" × 20" (41 cm × 51 cm) and larger have a ½" (13 mm) tolerance on both sides.
Krystal Seal Bags are available in many popular sizes for matted and mounted prints, drawings, watercolors, photographs, and inkjet prints — perfect for gallery, show, and studio use.

I buy this product over and again
from Wirtz, Va
I use these Krystal Seal Self Sealing Art Bags for my completed pieces as a means of reliable protection prior to framing. They keep the art safe from staining or yellowing, and I really love how easy they are to use. This is one of those no-brainer purchases for artists of many mediums.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Krystal seal self sealing bags

Helping our animal shelter
from Nelson County, Virginia
The thrift shop that funds our animal shelter in rural VA was donated a stack of antique labelse that went on the end of apple barrels. I needed to sell them so I lightly mounted them to cardboard and put them in these bags. The Orchard that grew the apples is now a winery, so they are trying to merchandise them for us.
Cheaply made, will rip
from Oakland, CA
I needed the largest size, so maybe this is why this happened, but they were such a pain to get the prints in the sleeve. I ordered a pack of 25 because I needed 25, but 5 of them ripped being removed from the outer packaging and two I ripped while trying to put prints in them that were actually smaller than the size of the envelopes. I guess buy more than you need.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Handy, but took at least two weeks to arrive.

Love these things!
from Russellville, Arkansas
I have sold pastel artworks and found these bags to be a real help both for storing finished paintings and sketches, and for selling them. I cut a mat and use one the size of the mat exterior for selling.Lately since I retired I've been doing medieval recreation and pen-gouache scroll creation for my medieval group. I make award scrolls for the club for contests, tournaments and service awards. These wind up having to travel out of state, usually by hand passed to another member who's going to the event, to go into a folder for giving out at the event. I don't make it to all the events by a long shot. These bags give tough storage in a way that's also easy to show off the art. It can be handled by people without losing its integrity or getting any damage. The gouache paintings are as fragile in their own way as the pastels and inevitably someone's going to sneeze or spill liquid - but the seals are excellent and they don't get rained on. Nor have any artworks I mailed arrived with water damage.If I don't mat the art, I will cut a same-size piece of mat board as a stiffener for the art unless the art's on a stiff board to begin with. It's cheaper to just get these bags in bulk in my most common sizes and cut my own mats, always has been. They're something I'd recommend to the frugal artist any time.I have tried other solutions but they're either not as sturdy or the art isn't as easily visible.
I'm buying more of these in different sizes
from Easton, MD
I haven't tried any competative alternatives. Professional artist friends recommended this product so that's what I bought and I'm extremely happy with it. I need a few more sizes for book illustrations. Blick's price is competitive -- the lowest I found on a quick search. The shipment arrived very quickly as well. Thanks, Blick!
