Since I've purchased 11x17 archival sheet protectors at 2003 FGS in Orlando, I was quick to assume they were Avery. However, in digging out the binder with the 11x17 sheets, I found that I purchased C-Line 11x17 sheet protectors. This online office supply page highlights a bunch of 11x17 sheet protectors: http://www.keysan.com/ksumo26.htm including C-Line, and others. It would appear that C-Line are the only one that says archival, but the Esselte-Pendaflex version is made of polypropelene.

Thanks for doing more research. It would be terrible to compile even photocopies of supporting documents only to find the paper side of our genealogical gleanings fall to the wayside. In my experience, pencil notations on legal note pads from the early 1970s are fading and the paper has become brittle.
That brings to mind the necessity of photocopying those older-style "wet" photocopies. The image tends to flake off as the copy ages. Thermal faxes are also a problem over time.
Happy family tree climbing!
