So i just jumped on the sleeved card bandwagon. Started doing a lot more social gatherings with my games all over the place. So sleeved cards are starting to becomes a must for me after unfortunate events.

So i've hit the problem i'm sure you've all delt with by now. 1st storage. I've seen some tuck boxes so i know they exist for some games. But are there generic tuck box for each size card sleeve someplace?

I've also toyed with the idea of just buying a case of the ultrapro deck boxes and using those, that could get expensive though. And that only works for the standard sized card when most cards are smaller then that. I've not seen nice boxes for other sized cards, do they exist?

The next thing is what do you guys do with these cards on tables and such? Anything over a stack of like 20 and their sliding all over the place never staying stacked.

So hopefully you all have some suggestions to help me out thanks!

More instructions for making tuck boxes. I am in no way a crafter or artist, but the process is pretty easy and kind of fun.

How to make a tuckbox

I have spent a lot of money on UltraPro acrylic boxes, but even if they fit in the game box, they make the box really heavy and risk damaging other cardboard components. The UltraPro deck boxes are safer.

As far as stacks sliding, it becomes less of an issue once all of the sleeves "deflate" and you get some stickiness from finger sweat and the like. I use business card displays (http://www.amazon.com/Amazon-8-pocket-Desktop-Business-Holde...) for games like Arkham Horror and playing card trays (http://www.amazon.com/Revolving-Playing-Card-Holder-Decks/dp...) for games like Munchkin.

I have wasted a lot of money on photo paper and card stock available around town.

I recommend ordering acid free stock as close to 300gsm as possible. I really like this stuff, and have found it for as little as 10 cents per page on the web.

Depends on what cards and sleeves. I believe the dimensions are listed.
