Enclosing flat objects is a form of containerization that is used to isolate, label and sort individual items within a group. This section includes examples of enclosures for collection items that are stored in densely packed configurations but need to be separated from one another. Traditionally, these enclosures are constructed from polyester film, acid free papers and mat boards.
