Once you start using these clear pocket sleeves (a.k.a. top loaders), you’ll wonder how you ever got by without them! Add a professional touch to any document by simply placing it in a clear plastic paper holder. They’re lightweight and flexible, yet sturdy enough to offer outstanding protection you can depend on. Available in a wide range of sizes ranging from a small photo (3.5” x 5”) to a large poster (27” x 34”).

Keep any important document in pristine condition. Safeguard checklists, evacuation signs, real estate listings, proposals, and other important papers. Honor participants at training events with attractive certificates, or hang your signage on the wall with your preferred pre-attached backings. Use clear pocket sleeves as an easier, non-permanent alternative to lamination.


  • SIZE:  document protectors measure 8.5”x11” (opening is on the short side)
  • VERSATILE: Hang DocU-Sleeves anywhere (even on fabric walls and cubicles
  • COST-EFFECTIVE: Eliminate the expense of lamination. Also, because these are so lightweight, you can easily mail certificates to recipients.
  • PORTRAIT or LANDSCAPE:  Easily hang vertical and horizontal sheets
  • BACKINGS:  Select your preferred pre-attached backings (free of charge) --  magnets, easel stands, and VELCRO/OMNI
  • REUSABLE AND STURDY: Reusable sleeves are sturdy and durable for multiple uses
  • CLEANABLE: Spray and wipe the sheet protectors to keep them clean
  • DRY-ERASE FRIENDLY: Slip in a blank sheet of paper, then write and post a hand-written sign--great for rapidly-changing messaging
  • LOTS OF SIZES: Choose the size you need: 3.5” x 5” / 4” x 6” / 5” x 7” / 8” x 10” / 8.5” x 11” / 8.5” x 14” / 11” x 17” / 18” x 24”  / 22” x 28”.  And, if you can't find the size you need? You may be able to cut it down to fit your exact size requirements. It's not ideal, but could work in a pinch!

No matter how you use DocU-Sleeves, here are just a few tips: 

    • We recommend leaving the opening at the top, unless it's posted outside and you want to protect your document from water. Even if the opening is at the bottom, your document is unlikely to slide out.
    • Slide in a sheet of blank paper in any color (or even a worksheet, chart, or form). You can use dry-erase markers on the document protectors, then easily wipe them clean. 
    • Slide sheets in an out as often as you need. They're not flimsy and so they'll stand up well to lots of transitions.
    • If using OMNI tabs, the adhesive may lessen if you take them up and down frequently, but feel free to get a back-up supply of OMNI TABS!
    • DocU-Sleeves placed in direct sunlight or in very bright areas may yellow over time.

DocU-Sleeves can be ordered with NO BACKING or with your CHOICE OF BACKING, INCLUDED FREE OF CHARGE

  • VELCRO/OMNI - If you're not sure whether a recipient will use the document protectors on a plaster or fabric wall, choose the VELCRO/OMNI backing, so that they can use it on either surface.
  • OMNI - the gentle adhesive will not harm painted walls. 
  • MAGNETS -  these are best used for metal surfaces like file cabinets. They are light-weight magnets so if you stuff too many sheets in the plastic sleeves, it might be too heavy and slide down.
  • CONVENIENCE: We send the DocU-Sleeves with backings already attached.
  • EASEL: If you don't have wall space, but want a DocU-Sleeve to stand on a desk, ask us about Easel Backs.

    Good response I’m filling my order to provide a useful product that allows viewing of documents while they’re still protected in a clear plastic sleeve. I’ve used it for many years and didn’t know there was two different thicknesses! Glad the Docu-Sleeves are working well for you. I believe the thickness of the Q style and D style appear different due to the edges. We actually checked the thickness of both with a micrometer and found them to be the same.

    This product works great!

    We are a cyber school so our teachers teach online from small studio rooms. We put the hourly room schedule for the studio on the doors using these sleeves. It worked perfect! They are also very easy to reposition!

    Unique Product, Unmatched with Cheaper Options

    I tried other similar products that were less expensive and these are by far superior. When giving certificates, the quality of the "frame" enhances the experience and the dual hanging methods make it easy for people to display. They also double as picture holders for cube walls!

    Great product

    I adhered these to large Poster boards for our upcoming Sales Meeting and insert different Breakout Session Info that changes each day. They were exactly what I needed.
