Acid-free envelopes

These are affixed inside pamphlet binders and are used primarily for pamphlet-sized materials which are unsuitable for either stitching or stapling directly into the binders. The commonest reason for this unsuitability is fragility, and for these materials a sleeve is also made to facilitate removing the item from and returning it to the envelope without damaging it.
