Finally took the plunge in getting into this one. Moving to a new area with actual players helped

Amid the joys of sleeving 1000 or so cards cry I went looking for storage options. I didn't want to go the binder route, because the in and out is a pain, and I'm going for an online browsing option. I did want to keep the cards together - one of the guys who got me into it printed and hand folded/taped envelopes, which was great for storing each pod. I was looking for something a little less labor-intensive though, and ended up with these:

http://www.officedepot.com/a/products/400651/Office-Depot-Br...

The bags have a writeable stripe, and if you cut the top of the bag off across the top of that stripe, it's basically the perfect size for holding 12 cards with FFG sleeves. They work fine for 6 too, if a bit loose, but I figured a majority of the time you'll be using both copies of a pod in a deck, so why not keep them together? Also, the stripe is only on one side, which leaves the objective clear to read, and you could easily write pod numbers on the stripe for quick numeric searches.

Overall, very happy with the solution. Makes organizing and finding pods very easy.

I use the ultra pro pro-binders and run the pods across the rows. You get three pods on each spread. Makes it great to review your pods and build decks.

I've just done the exact same thing this weekend. Took ages to sleeve the cards and put them into the binder, but worth it in the end.

Wasn't really trying to start another debate on how to store them, mostly suggesting a good option for those who store them as pods.

I see no debate. Just people contributing thoughts.

Just got a bunch of these cards and am looking for a way to store them as well. Are you saying that sleeved cards fit into the binder sheets?

They will fit in the pockets, yes. You have issues with it closing due to the thickness added by the sleeves.

It will also depend on the exact sleeves. Fantasy Flight sleeves in particular are quite large compared to most other brands and may not fit in most binders.

As per the question, regarding the Ultra Pro binders referenced in my original quote, they do fit in that one.

Apologies as the photo was taken from my phone, so it's not the greatest. This is the Ultra Pro Pro-Binder with FFG clear and Star Wars art sleeves being used.
