Search for a Bag to Fit Your Product

If your product is a common standard photo, art, or stationery size, first check the standard sizes page.

Enter the dimensions of the product you will put in the bag:

 
WIDTH "
LENGTH "
THICKNESS  "
Please note:
  • This will search for bags that are larger than the dimensions you enter.
  • "Width" is the size of the side that has the opening (normally the top of the bag).
  • Custom sizes are also available.

Popular Conversion Tables

How do I manually calculate the correct size bag for my product?

  • Add the product depth to the width of the bag
  • Add 1/2 the product depth to the length of the bag
  • Add extra space to the final width and length of the bag for play. For the best fit we generally recommend adding 3/16" to the width and 1/16" to the length to provide the best balance of snug fit and ease of insertion. Add at least 1/8" to the width to allow for enough play to insert the product.

For Example:

  • For a product that is 5" x 1/4" x 7"...
  • Add the depth (1/4") to the width (5")(opening side) = 5" + 1/4" = 5 1/4"
  • Add 3/16" for tolerance = 5 1/4" + 3/16" = 5 7/16".
  • Add 1/2 the product depth to the length of the bag.
  • 7" + 1/8" (1/4"divided by 2 = 1/8") = 7 1/8"
  • Add 1/8" for tolerance = 7 1/8" + 1/8" = 7 1/4".
  • The final result gives you the minimum bag size required at 5 7/16" x 7 1/4". This would fit a 5" x 7" product with a backing board and mat (overall depth 1/4") fairly snug. Check your measurement against the list of bag sizes we offer. You will find we have a 5 7/16" x 7 1/4" bag to fit most 5" x 7" products.
    Additional Considerations When Calculating Sizing
  • If you are having a hard time finding the exact size in stock you may consider using a standard flap seal Crystal Clear Bag with extra length to fit your product. By using a flap seal style closure, you can fold the flap down as far as necessary to achieve a snug fit. For example, a 16" x 18" product 1/4" thick fits well into a 16 7/16" x 20 1/8" bag (B16) by simply folding the flap down 2 inches when you seal it.
