Questions and Answers
Mylar Bags - our MVP Marvelseal Storage Pouch
These pouches are made of exact specifications to meet very low moisture vapor transmission requirements. They work great inside of a time capsule to protect contents both inside and outside of the bag. For instance, some customers may wish to place an item whose inherent longevity is unknown (a Twinkie, a leather item, a rubber ball, a bottle of wine). Best way to handle this is to pack it inside of an MVP pouch (seal according to instructions - you can use a common household iron as specified).
Each order comes with at least one set of instructions, a sample piece of the MVP material to test on your heat sealing device, and seal release paper (to place in between your iron and the material to keep the material from sticking on your iron). Per Pouch.
Material used for making the bags: Laminated Film/Foil/Poly. Some vendors call these metallized poly bags. These are a thicker version and are safe for food as well as artifacts. They provide superior protection for items in long term storage, and can be used for EMP bags. Some of the bags have quality control printing on the outside. Bags were made in the USA. All of our bags except the largest 23x32" size are safe for food or artifacts.

Ideas of what to use for sizes
5x7" - Small items such as pens, candies, soil samples, seeds, herbs
6x24" - Longer items such as a vinyl banner (rolled up), or a paper scroll (rolled up), or a wine bottle, or a brandy bottle; cut into 3 pieces and heat seal all around to get 3 bags for smaller items from each bag
8x10" - Documents, photos, hard drives, 1 pt food dry
12x18" - Framed items, wooden items, leather items, food 1 qt dry
15x20" - Framed pictures, wooden items, leather items, food 1/2 gallon dry
The picture shows the Mylar bag has been vacuum-sealed. Do the bags come with instructions or equipment for doing this?
Each bag order comes with an instruction sheet for you to use with your own equipment. If you don't have a professional machine, you can still use a common household iron (or a hair straightener iron!). This won't remove the air, of course. You will want to express as much air out before you start. You could use a drinking straw or data vac before finishing the seal. We also include a seal release paper & a sample bag for you to practice on. But how to extract the air (if you want to do that) is up to you.
