Comic Backing Boards & MicroChamber Paper

When was the last time you saw the back of your comics

Our new INVISIBOARD® Comic ,, allows you to do just that!
It's made from crystal clear PETG plastic. PETG is in the 'Mylar' (polyester) 
family of plastics which is archival and acid-free. 
It is .030" thick, semi-rigid, impact resistant, and fully recyclable!

MicroChamber Paper is a very thin, nearly transparent, interleaving paper that contains dispersed molecular traps that remove and neutralize acids, pollutants, and the harmful by-products of deterioration.  Insert one or two sheets in your comics and know that you are effectively practicing preventative conservation for your collection. It also eliminates odors such as smoke, mold, and mildew. 

Our COMIC BOARDS are specifically designed to fit into OUR poly bags. Placing a backing board behind or preferably in the center of your comic, then putting it inside a poly bag helps prevent the comic spine from crushing and the comic pages from crimping or wrinkling.
