Office Depot� Brand Top-Loading Sheet Protectors, Heavyweight, Non-Glare, Box Of 50
Beware! Multiple item #s have the same box!
I bought item #OM97124, thinking that it was the same sheet protectors we had already bought, in exactly the same box as item # OM02258.The only difference (besides quantity) was that the earlier purchase has in the top right corner a number OM02258, and the one I found at the store recently has OM97124.
Who memorizes item numbers so they can buy the same when they walk into a store? I've not seen other instances where only the item number can specify that this box does or does not contain what was in the last box that looked just the same. Conventionally, manufacturers package a different item in a box that specifies that it's not the other item(s). And the on-line catalog should specify what's different.
I don't like OM97124, and plan to return it. The pages are not stiff, so they won't tend to hold upright in a binder unless the contents make that happen, and the surface is pebbled instead of smooth. They supposedly are the same 3.2 mil.
On OfficeMax's website, there is even a THIRD MFG # (OM02257) listed under the same title "OfficeMax Heavyweight Top-Load Poly Sheet Protectors, Non-Glare."
So be careful when ordering. If you buy it in a store, what you think you're getting, in this case, may not be what it was the last time.

Did a Good Job
These sheets are a nice weight, anti-static, and do everything I ask of them.
If you want a very stiff sheet, I would go with the super heavyweight. These are flexible.

We ordered these sheet protectors in 2 boxes - 200 ct and 100 ct. The description online says absolutely nothing about them having different finishes, but they do. We had to return them, our project was already late because we had to return one box so that all sheet protectors matched. Then the replacement order took 3 days to deliver. Not thrilled with the quality or service.

Protectors that last
These take a great beating as we use them as dry erase sheets to allow for less printing of worksheets. While the standard weight work ok, these are fantastic.
