Brenda...Looking at that film from Joann's, I think I would check out other options if only because of the cost. My laminating pouches, which are not acetate, are only a bit over $20 for 200 pouches. They're 8.5 x 11 instead of 12 x 12. They can be heat sealed with or without paper or cardstock inside so you could have them clear or not. And a laminator can be had for about $20.
Even factoring in the cost of a heat-laminator, they cost less than 25% of the cost of the grafix film even with the sale price.
I second fionnas reply. Actually this issue is in two or three threads on here at the moment, isn't it funny haw everyone gets the same thought at the same time. What I put in the other thread was that you can get a cheap laminator off Amazon( around $17, if I remember rightly). Laminating pouches can be bought cheap, as fionna said. I've been able to get them from our pound stores( like your dollar stores). I just laminate the pouch, I don't bother putting paper or cardstock in them, but you can if you want to.I have been storing my stamps on these for a few years now, and not getting any problems with them at all.
The big danger, as the others have said, is acetate. Hth.
