So I have a few photo prints in 11x17 toploaders and was wondering if I should foam board and bag them.

These are the sleeves:

My only concern is they aren't acid free

Anyone know more about these?

Important Note: Ultra Pro Top Loaders are not acid free. It is recomended that a soft sleeve be used before putting a card, picture, or whatever in the Top Loader. The Ultra Pro soft sleeves are made of polypropylene which is acid free and does not contain any PVC.



also, doubt you'll be able to get foam board in those. maybe acid free mat board.

Good catch, thanks!

Looks like I will be taking them out of there.
