When it comes to large poster sleeves for artwork, cutting corners is never a good idea. Cheap poster covers can cause more harm than good, and can leave you with damaged prints, unusable print sleeves and a wasted investment.
When you need large plastic art sleeves that are truly built to last, our 32 x 42 premium poster sleeves are the obvious choice. And because Valentino’s Display’s manufacture all our poster covers here in the UK, you can be confident you’re getting amazing quality at a price that won’t break the bank. Here’s what you need to know about protecting your investment in beautiful art:
What to look for in large plastic art sleeves
You might think that all print sleeves are made equal, but that’s not always the case. When you’re shopping for poster covers to protect your beautiful prints, artworks and even LPs, there are a few crucial specifications you should always check for:
Acid free:Plastic poster covers containing acid have a habit of leeching this substance into the prints stored inside. At best, this will make the film go cloudy, obscuring your view and making the poster covers useless. At worst, it could start to discolour your print, or even to break down the paper it is printed on. Cutting corners here is just not worth it.
Plasticiser free: Plasticisers, such as are used in PVC, slowly degrade over time. During the degradation process, these substances release an acid, which will cause all the problems named above. Not only that, but as the plasticisers break down, they leave the plastic print sleeves brittle and rigid, liable to cracking and breaking.
Anti-static: We know our customers often use our large poster sleeves for artwork, but also for data laden items such as LPs too. Anything with data ingrained on the surface, such as records, discs or data drives, is susceptible to corruption if electricity is applied, even in small quantities. For this reason, we make all our print sleeves anti-static, so that this is never a concern.
Quality construction: When you’re buying large plastic art sleeves, you want to invest in a product that will last, and with our premium 32 x 42 poster sleeves, you get this in spades. We’ve used a higher quality 175-micron film, a tough rigid centre board and have finished every one with metal corners to ensure a robust design which is built to stand the test of time.
All our print sleeves offer exceptional value for money, but with our large poster sleeves for artwork from our premium range, we really pulled out all the stops. If you’re interested in archival quality print sleeves that will last and last, these are your number one option.
Choosing the right poster covers
We know that buying poster covers can be a trying experience. With such a wide variety of options, it can be confusing to know what it is you really need. But with our help, you’ll find the perfect product that suits your needs perfectly.
First, simply choose either the regular or premium version of our large plastic art sleeves. Our regular sleeves are still made within the UK, and to a high standard, but for the ultimate in protection and great aesthetics, we recommend our premium option.
Next, choose the correct size. Simply measure your prints and choose the next nearest, but larger, size available. These 32 x 42-inch sleeves are generously proportioned for larger prints and artwork, but we have many more print sleeves available to suit your needs.
Finally, choose your finishes. With our premium poster covers, you can select the colour of the metal corners, the colour of the fabric backing and the quantity you’d like to order. We’re always here to help and advise if you aren’t sure what to order, and because we manufacture all our own large poster sleeves for artwork, we can always produce a special product just for you if you can’t find what you need on our site.
