  1. Hi Beth, I am the archivist at UNCW. Hope you’re having a good long weekend. I have a question about making protective enclosures for printed materials of various thickness/ depth. For small pamphlets, we have been making 4 flap enclosures with 10 pt board. For .5 inch in depth, would it make sense to do the same with thicker board? For larger items, what kind of box do you recommend? Note: most of these materials are looseleaf and not bound.
