Letters were originally transported in envelopes in order to ensure privacy as well as protect them from any damage. A record of the first sale of letter envelopes dates back to 1820, by the book and paper trader S. K. Brewer in Brighton. In the course of time such letter envelopes were also being used in archives, libraries and museums for the storage of small, mostly sheeted objects. Today, the use of envelope enclosures is widespread and are a popular tool in the field of preservation and are frequently used for storing cultural artefacts.

Seals can be found on historical documents, books or vessels. They were used as marks of authentication, identification or ownership, as a proof of closure or an anti-tamper device on documents and vessels, often to protect from unauthorised opening or adulteration of the contents. A new type of seal bag was developed in 2002 in collaboration with the Diplom-qualified restoration experts Forstmeyer/Schrempf. The material selected and the shape of the bag make it ideal for long-term protection and storage of seals.» to the product group
