Hi Derek,


Uline has a variety of sealable plastic bags at a reasonable price, and of various grades of quality of seal and thickness of plastic.

Subject: Ziplocks large enough for Schmitt boxes?


Non-NU Email

Can anyone recommend a supplier and perhaps catalog # of ziplock-type plastic bags that are large enough to hold a standard entomological Schmitt box (9 x 13 x 2-1/2″ O.D. (229 x 330 x 64 mm)).


I'd like to ensure all our loaned Schmitt boxes are bagged as extra precaution against dermestids & moisture.
