Hi there,

does anyone of you know a store selling CGC mylar bags in Germany or Europe?
I could order them from eBay US but mostly the shipping rates are higher then their selling price...

Thanks! :)

Just so I am clear, are you looking for true MYLAR or do you mean the poly bags that CGC comics arrive in direct form CGC?

Preferably true Mylar bags which fit the current CGC slab size.

There was a thread about this about a month ago concerning the best bags to store CGC slabs in.  It was in Comic General section area I believe.  Not 5 minutes ago I slid a slab into a mylar and it split halfway down one side.  No, I do not know where the "mylar" bag came from or who made it.  In that thread I posted that I thought the mylar was less flexible and more brittle.  Maybe someone should do a pull test vs poly bags or maybe I am just careless.  Sorry, I didn't really answer your question.

I wonder if the bag was a cheaper version of "mylar" that was not really biaxially-oriented (polymers all lined up with each other in 2 orthogonal directions like east-west and north-south).  Maybe it was PET instead of BoPET.

Just a guess but a sharp object could easily split/cut a thin plastic that has all of the polymers pointing in one direction (think of splitting wood with the grain)... But not so easy to split a thin plastic if it has "grains" in multiple directions.

ebay or amazon is most likely your best option, make sure you buy direct  or from trusted 3-parties
