I purchased THREE boxes of these protective sheets as I wanted to be sure that I had enough for the task. I was working on a very important project for one of our clients, which involved assembling photos that we had shot of defective mechanical work on his aircraft. The notebook of photos that I assembled would be used in Court - so it was important to me that I have Acid Free Heavy Weight Sheet Protectors. I THOUGHT that the Avery name would insure a great product.
When I received the boxes, I opened the first box and immediately started on my project. With the very first sheet however, I noticed that about 1/3 of each box were "spotted." I couldn't even use them! And this happened with EACH BOX. I had purchased 150 protectors and ended up needing about 125 of them. In the end, I had to use sheets that weren't as bad as the worst - but I shouldn't have had to worry about this. As it is, I'm going to return a box of them to Amazon where I have put the completely unusable ones in to return.
These were not left opened. These were used immediately during a period of 3-4 days. And this was not isolated to one box - but rather all three. The sheets that were not defective worked great, but who wants to lose 1/3 of your contents? I will not be buying Avery Protectors again!
