Comic Skin Product Info
Comic Skin was created by comic book collectors so we know how important protection and preservation is to our customers. All materials used in Comic Skin products are selected based on their abilities to protect the books they are enlisted to conserve. The plastics used in the Comic Skin openable slabs and Crystal Clear backing boards are of archival quality and constructed of materials structurally similar to those plastics used by libraries and governmental archives for document conservation.

- Comic Skin openable comic book slabs are designed to protect and display golden, silver, bronze and current comic books. Some of the largest golden age books (larger than L: 10.25″ and/or W: 7.0″) require a special inner cover (typically printed before 1950). If you plan to slab books in this category please purchase the Golden Age Large slabs.
- The Comic Skin inner cover protects and centers the book in the slab. The inner cover also holds a 1 x 8″ card with the Comic Skin logo printed on it. This card can be removed and replaced by any similarly shaped piece of paper you would like.
- Some customers custom print their own cards and include things like graphics, series name, series number, date of printing and any thing else they like. Others just leave the Comic Skin card in place and others remove the card completely.
- A Word template for a custom header card is available upon request
