Default How do you protect your digibooks?

I know they make plastic bags for steelbook protection, but what about digibooks? Some of the bags I have fit the thinner digis like Rocky Horror and Dr. Strangelove, but I really can't think of something to keep the thicker ones looking good. Any suggestions out there?

There are the steel shells. These come in larger sizes.

I use plastic sleeves that are designed for 'jumbo' steelbooks. Sure there's some extra room for some of them, but it fits nicely for the more thicker ones.
I use them for digipacks too.

I don't use anything to be honest. I guess I'm not as critical about keeping them pristine.

+1, I don't store my digibooks in plastic. I understand putting steelbooks in plastic, since scratches/paint chips could rust, but I'm not as worried about digis.

Just like I dont store hard back books in plastic sleeves I dont store my digi books in plastic.

they don't need to be in plastic to protect them and keep them looking nice.

+1. Digibooks dont need protecting really unless you are really really OCD - which Im not. Steelbooks definitely need protecting in my experience no matter how careful you are - stacking them next to each can cause chips and scratches.

Ever thought of using clear contact paper to protect them?

I've always kept mine in polybags. They're a hair too small to fit properly, but I just tear down the side and slide them in. I just want the front and back protected from shelf wear, which over time wears out the printing, and coloring. Some I've had 10 years and look completely pristine.

All of the SB PET slips Iíve tried are too narrow (even the SCF8ís from SB Central which fit those thick double Lentis from HD Zeta).

Been looking for something myself. I also need something for German Mediabooks. I keep EVERYTHING but naked amarays in hard plastic PET slips of which I donít have many bc if the movie isnít released w/ a slip SOMEWHERE then I buy the SB. And unless itís 3D or 4K Iíd rather just buy it digitally if there is no slip or SB.

It looks bad bad to have hundreds of blurays sitting in pretty slips and then a naked one here or there. Throws off the look. But Iím pretty OCD.

I use comic book bags current size.

Here's a photo of a couple of digibooks in their bags next to a comic book in its corresponding bags for size comparison. As you can see there's plenty of bag left, I use the same size bags for paperback books and there's no problem.

This.

I'm WAY more nervous about what kind of damage digibooks and other custom, non-easily replaceable packaged blu rays will take during the shipping than I am with possible damage after I receive them.

What protection could you use for the Target exclusive Marvel releases? Anyone know of what would fit them?

I found a user on ebay who sells protective sleeves for steelbooks and other stuffs. I recently found out that he also has some for digibook too, and although its size didn't fit all digibooks, they did fit most of Target's ones nicely though.





The Mummy ulttimate collection is extremely tight with the j-card, but I managed to shove it in after all (it fits nicely without the j-card though).







As you can see, thicker digibooks (like Cars 3, Coco, Brave, and The Incredibles 2) won't fit inside this sleeve, but the thinner ones (like most of Marvel's and Wonder Woman + Aquaman) will. I didn't know Target was so inconsistent with their digibook's/digipak's size. Beauty and the Beast, Pinocchio and Moana fit perfectly, while others still have extra space.
