Question Displaying and protecting multi-panel Marvel Premier sketches

I love the Marvel Premier sketches and I have a few (okay, I have a lot ) coming in. I have 2, 3, and 4 panel cards incoming. I also have some 1 panels, but I'm pretty clear on how to protect those

I'm at a loss at the moment how to display these bad boys in a way that will let you enjoy both sides of the sketch, but will still protect them adequately (i.e., the protection will not damage the cards and you get UV, etc. shielding).

I'm pretty new to sketch cards, so maybe there's been another release with sketches like this and someone has figured this out already

I appreciate your suggestions.

They make 8x10 top loaders and 5x7... Maybe those are an option for the short term.

The top loaders are a great idea, I use them for larger sketches and other odd size items, such as postcards.

Make sure the top loader is thick enough for the sketches.

Yeah. Those may not be thick enough!

You may have to go with those custom ones people are selling. There is a video that shows you how to make them as well.

They also sell those acryilic 4-screw screwdowns in larger sizes (up to 8x10 photo i think) so that might be nice to really display. You can also go to any craft store and get a floating frame (glass front and back) and use that.
