    What size ziplock for 5x7 holders?

    Hi!

    Can you point me in the right direction for 5x7 bags?

    Thanks,

    Serge

    Try to find anti-static bags, as these will not charge up the holder slides to attract dust... Uline sells large amounts, but online, or electronic/computer suppliers might have smaller #'s for you...

    5x7 holders are 6"x 9.75", so an 8x10 bag should hold one just fine. The gallon Zip-Loc bags (10.5" x10.5") easily hold a couple 5x7 holders.

    If you want something more fitting:

    https://www.uline.com/Product/Detail...eclosable-Bags

    $46 for 1000 bags. Might be more than you need! But you'll want to toss them out regularly as they get torn, dirty, etc.

    You might want to check the anti-static bags if you live in a dry climate. https://www.uline.com/Product/Detail...able-Poly-Bags

    The above are 2 mil bags, but they come thicker. Also come padded (bubble bags).

    Vaughn nailed it, I put two into each bag.

    Mcmaster Carr will sell you 25 8x10 anti-static bags for about $10.

    I keep each of my 5x7 Fidelity Deluxe holders (older style with wire handles) in 4-mil pink anti-static ziplok bags to keep them dust-free. I get them from this source in Seattle, Washington USA:
    http://staticbags.com/
    Scroll down to the bottom of the page for instructions on getting a quote for the shipping service of your choice.
    If you need help, at the very bottom of the page is an email address for contacting.

    Here is the specific bag I use; they're 9x12 inches, 4 mil thick: http://staticbags.com/FASST40912.html
    Prices / quantities are shown.
    You can also get samples to ensure a desired fit.

    I THINK two holders fit in the bag, but I'd confirm that if you wish. I only put one holder in the bag for use in the field.

    I'll have to check out these links- thanks all! I was recently given some modern 4x5 Riteway holders (with the big handles) and a supermarket quart size ziplock (which works for all the holders I have used forever) is too small. I'd been meaning to post the question, for once being lazy/forgetful may have worked out.

    Yeah -- they changed the dimensions of the quart zip-locs...wider but shorter. Bummer.

    The 9x12 does seem to be a nice size and should fit two 5x7 holders easily. Just a touch more than the 8x10, but I think the 9x12 might work better.

    I need to get some for 8x10 holders (12x15, perhaps -- holders are 9"x13"). Then there are my 11x14 holders -- there are anti-static bubble bags but the nearest fit is 18x23.5 (holders are 13"x18").

    Vaughn, the 12x15 bags shown in my earlier link are what I use for 8x10 Fidelity Deluxe holders with wire handles, but again I haven't tried to fit two holders in one bag. Can confirm if you want me to.

    So any workaround for 4x5 new zip locks?
