Acrylic vs PET Plastic Video Game Protectors

If you're a video game collector, then you know that one of the most important things to protect your collection is to keep them in plastic boxes. But with so many options on the market, it can be hard to know which type of plastic box is the best option for you. In this blog post, we'll be comparing the two most popular types of plastic boxes for video games: acrylic and PET plastic. Both options have their pros and cons, and we'll lay it all out for you so you can make the best decision for your gaming collection.

Acrylic boxes are the most sturdy and thick option, but they come at a price. These boxes will run you nearly $20 each. If you can afford it, acrylic is the best way to keep your games in pristine condition but If you have a large video game collection, opting for acrylic cases may not be the most practical choice. If you have a smaller budget, then you may want to choose a cheaper option, like PET plastic cases.

Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic box sleeves are cheap but durable. Most importantly, they protect your games from dirt, dust, and moisture. PET plastic is also acid-free, so it won't damage your games over time. They're also the most affordable option. While acrylic cases can go for nearly $20 each, PET plastic sleeves cost less than a dollar if you buy in large quantities. 

We hope you found this post helpful. Now that you know the difference between acrylic and PET plastic protective boxes, you can make the best decision for your video game collection.
