Made from 80gsm CXD pHoton™ paper the single piece die-cut enclosures are cruciform shape, have four flaps and are seamless and adhesive free, for the storage of photographic glass plates.
These enclosures are available in most common glass plate sizes. Photographic glass plates can be stored safely with no risk of pressure marks. They can also be viewed without being removed from their protective coating by just unfolding the flaps and leaving the plate untouched, safely on a flat surface e.g. a light box. The same enclosures can also be used for the storage of film negatives or prints.
Four Flap enclosures normally generate a lot of wastage because their cruciform shape means that half the paper area required to make them gets thrown in the waste bin. Generally the manufacture of Four Flaps is carried out as a post-mill operation by paper convertors, but with pHoton™ Four Flaps, all the conversion is carried out within the paper mill and all the wastage is recycled. This makes both ecological and economic sense, since you the customer are then only charged for the paper you receive.
