I have a bunch of what are probably 17x20 inch envelopes..these are great for
holding a bunch of similar transcriptions. If I could get sleeves made of this
stuff (16.25x16.25) for a reasonable bulk price, I'd be happy..those of us with
large accumulations of transcriptions, often from libraries where they were in
folders instead of sleeves, or whose sleeves have disintegrated, and who won't
live long enough to clean every one of these discs but just want to keep them
from any more dust and grit (anybody remember when this sentence started?)
don't need two-dollar acid-free environmentally friendly tree-hugger stuff.
I've kept transcription discs safe in newspaper for years! (Come to think of
it, I have a large load of blank newsprint left over from packing dishes and
china. Got a 25-lb package and still have about half of it.)
Holes would be nice too..photocopying the labels and pasting them onto the
outsides is a little much.
