Kristal Kare offers you protective pockets made from archival materials that guarantee both immediate and permanent protection for the longevity of your stamps, covers, and other items of importance to you. Protective pockets are the ONLY products we make, and we make them better than any comparable pocket. Our products use the highest quality plastic available for each material. That assures that you will receive superior clarity, stability, durability and strength. Compare our pockets. Ask any dealer or auction house and we know you will try us.
