Sleeves for specific types of prints?

Hello, I'm wondering what types of sleeves would you recommend for gloss, lustre, and matte paper please. I'm going to sell and expose the prints to others so I want to keep them in good condition and safe when I bring them with me. Thanks.

Assuming that you are in the US....

I use bags from: https://www.clearbags.com/bags/clear-bags

I use their "no flap" bags in my studio and their "protective closure bags" for prints that are going out in public.

No connection with these folks other than as a satisfied customer.

I like Mylars, myself. Look into a company called E. Gerber... They have different thicknesses (I use the 2mil) and different sizes, but the glossy bags make the images look very nice.

E. Gerber has a $100 min order but you can find them easily on Amazon for $20-ish a pack (look for Mylites 2).

I also use their full backing boards to prevent bending.

Anything bigger than that is framed for shipping.
