We wanted to make protective sleeves that would fit First Day Covers (FDCs), but of course we discovered multiple sizes apply for such Ephemera. We know that collectors are rightly fussy about how their collectable looks inside a sleeve, and so we decided to offer a variety of sizes of FDC sleeve so that you can get the one that best fits your item. In the main, our customers order Size B (220 x 120 mm, 50 sleeves), but European covers tend towards size C (232 x 118 mm, 50 sleeves) and older covers Size A (225 x 115mm, 50 sleeves).

Following customer enquiries, we have now made a Size D cover (100 x 150mm, 100 sleeves) which will fit a pre 1948 FDC or old postcards.

These are exclusively manufactured by us here in the UK and are used worldwide including some of the largest archives such as the London Stereoscopic Slide Archive.

Our sleeves open at the short size and your card slides simply and easily in, to provide a lovely transparent, snug fitting protection for decades to come. We offer many different sizes for trading card sleeves - if you cant find the size you want, try also the photography section on the website.
