Ok all, what is the best place online to buy simple card sleeves for a game I'm working on. Nothing special, I just need 6 different colors, as cheap as possible.
Thanks,
Wade

http://www.fairplaygames.com/ has a ton of them. Search for "sleeves".

Stupid question. Never used, experienced, played with these before. Is the side facing out opaque at all? Or will you still be able to see through the card if its on normal printer paper?

I'm pretty sure I've seen these. The FRONT has a pattern embedded in the plastic that obscures text quite a bit.

Thanks. They had everything in theory, but all the plain colors were out of stock. The chormium lookded cool, but the shipping comes to 50% of my order....better to look at a local store I guess. Perhaps its still cheaper with crazy shipping.

Most often, sleeves are sold in packs of 50 or 100. How many of each color do you need? Six packs will set you back $20-40 or more. If you only need a few of each color, I can send them to you.

I've bought a lot from Paizo.com. I've found them to be the cheapest and have the most selection - just be aware they have to get thiers from a warehouse - so shipping might be delayed.

All I use is Chromium sleeves - as many of the others are not opaqe. They are about middle of the line in cost - but look good and are quality sleeves.

This depends on what kind of sleeves your looking for- but if you mean deck protectors (Ultra Pro, Dragon Shield, etc.) - the cheapest prices anywhere when you take into account shipping is http://www.cheapmagicsleeves.com
