    Can anyone tell me where I can purchase clear, plastic sleeves for ATC's and Postcards sizes: 2.5"x3.5", 3.5"x5, and 4"x6" ? Or are they usually "home made" ?
    In a quandary,
    Cassie

    I buy full sheet plastic sleeves at office depot and stitch in my parts the size I want. Than CAREFULLY slit one side so I can slip in pics, etc.

    http://www.centuryphoto.com/ has many sizes but they are slooooooow on orders.

    Creative Memories used to sell them for scrapbooking. So you might check with the scrapbooking supply companies.

    I have sewn through the full sized too, but they didn't last long.

    You might also have luck through stamp collector supply companies.

    Try your Office Supply stores. I know they sell plastic sleeves in different sizes. Well, I know they used to. Also try Trading Card store, i.e. baseball, basketball, football trading cards. They would also have different size sleeves.

    I make fabric post cards that are 4x6 and
    the clear plastic sleeves I buy are PERFECT
    for mail the cards.

    You have to buy 500 at a time, but if you can
    get 4 other friends to go in with you than approx.
    $5 per person is about all it costs.

    Click on the link below to see the item. Let me
    know if the link does not work.
