For fine presentations they provide that extra touch of feel that comes with a good presentation. Also perfect when there is a heavy demanding work load added to the pages because they are used frequently.

Extra Heavyweight

This is a very hard thickness to find on the market. We think it's a great thickness to work with and some of Keepfiling's sheet protectors are offered in this weight. These are slightly better quality sheet protectors than heavyweight material, and are ideal for those who wants some added durability but not to the extent of super heavyweight and the cost that comes with it.
