How to choose sheet protectors:
Part 4 – Final Tip: How to Not Get Cheated!

Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve looked at sheet protector weights and material gauges, and how they affect the textures and durability of sheet protectors.

However, even with this information there are still consumers out there who purchases sheet protectors that are not advertised as they are and that is because a lot of times manufacturers and retailers will not list the material gauge details. For those instances, we have a little tip for you – look at the shipping weight of the sheet protectors you purchased. 

In most cases, legit standard weight sheet protectors should weigh about 1.66 lb. per 100 sheets.   Any shipment less than that could mean your sheet protectors are not actually standard weights.  You can use this as a reference if your retailer or manufacturer does not list material gauge details for their products.  

With the information we provided, we hope you’ve learned how to choose the right weight of sheet protectors depending on what you need them for and more importantly how to make sure the weight is correct by understanding material gauge. 

Remember, different material gauges will result into different sheet protector weights.  A general rule of thumb – the higher the material gauge, the heavier the sheet protectors, therefore the better the quality of the sheet protectors!

Hopefully you now feel a bit more like an educated consumer and with this in mind we hope you will check out or collection of sheet protectors at our website and potentially hope to do business with you in the very near future.
