These sleeves are colored as pictured. They are much better than the Maxell ones which are a tighter fit and are prone to coming apart. I house DVDs for TV series in these, since I don't need them on display. Shipping was free and fast. My only regret was getting some Maxell ones too. The paper is more flexible in these -- perhaps extra fiber or weave in the material. I ordered extra so I have them ready. A TV show can come with 30 discs, and they take up a lot of space.
