The mission of Atlantic Protective Pouches is to provide the highest quality, archival grade polyester sleeves for hobbyists and archivists seeking to protect valuable collectibles, souvenirs, or historic materials. The advantage of Atlantic Protective Pouches, compared with catalog retailers, is that we are able to make custom size sleeves in any quantity or style, and for less cost. Our products are used by individuals, collectors, exhibitors, dealers, museums, libraries, universities, photo and art galleries, archives and government institutions worldwide.
Our sleeves can be sealed along one side, two sides, or three sides.
A "folder" can have a seal along one long edge, or along one short edge.
An "L-seal" (or "L-weld" or "L-sleeve") has two seals (seals on 2 adjacent sides).
Two long sides can be sealed, forming a "sleeve". The two short sides remain open.
The "U-seal" is the most common style which has seals on three sides.
An optional flap can be added to the opening.
Here are some other descriptive terms: Sheet protector, page protector, cover, envelope, exhibition page, enclosure, or protective sleeve.
Enclosures can be made with many features, including: an extended lip, flap, punched holes, or a "stop-strip" (to prevent a document from moving against the rings in a binder). We can also ship product in roll form, or in individual cut sheets.
Atlantic Protective Pouches is a trade name for W.H.E. Research, Inc., which started operation in July of 1996, after acquiring the Resale and Institutional divisions of Taylor Made Company. Then in January 1999, Atlantic Protective Pouches began supplying pouches to the Philatelic, Numismatic, and Stock Certificate customers formerly associated with Taylor Made Company. Our background includes almost 40 years of experience in heat sealing methods for materials such as DuPont Mylar & Melinex and SKC films.
We only use archival-grade polyester films approved by the Library of Congress.
Please find our Material Description page for detailed information.
Dimensions can vary from very small (1" x 1"),
to large sizes (60” wide with unlimited lengths).
We generally use 3, or 4 mil polyester for our heat sealed products.
Additionally, we can provide individual polyester sheets in 2, 3, 4, and 5 mil with optional tissue inserts.

Greg from Elizabethtown, PA::
" I can't believe these arrived already!! Absolutely amazing quality, perfect packaging, and excellent service. My only regret is that I don't have enough posters yet to place another order. But I will DEFINITELY be ordering more from you when I need them. And thanks so much for the extra! Wow, I can't tell you how impressed I am. There are an awful lot of companies out there that could learn a few things from you about service and quality. I feel like my order was priority number 1 around there.
