Hi All,

here are some photos for those who are looking for sleeving their cards; green FF Supply fits best:




for smaller cards i did not have options, but it is definitely a very good fit:




Have fun,
S.

Us Euros should have relatively easy access to Arcane Tinmen sleeves, which are 1-1 in size with FFG's sleeves and come in packs of 100 instead of 50 by FFG.

Medium = FFG Green, Mini = FFG Yellow

Also, why are the cards on top of the PACG box and not the GoW box ?

Could be. In my case, Dutch web-stores ran out of Tinmen at the moment i was ordering & price-wise it almost the same with FFG.

i was searching for the surface, on which people could see edges of the sleeves...strangely, PACG's box worked best

The dragon-shield sleeves are excellent quality but thicker than FFG equivalents which sounds like a good thing but can be a total pain in a large stack of cards.

Those mayday sleeves should go back into the hole they came from. Having recently bought ten packs I was willing to believe they had gotten past their quality control issues but jeez was I wrong. Some too big, some too small, variation within the SAME PACK. The company I bought them from will shift a fair few so I know it's not old stock either. Terrible product.

Not that I'm bitter about it

Odd, since I seem to recall someone actually doing measurement (or finding the stats) and the FFG sleeves are 100 microns, AT sleeves 80 microns thick.

You're probably right, I mean the dragonshield sleeves by AT which are thicker I believe. Well, they certainly feel thicker!!
