Anyone have any issues with the binder slots ripping after use? On one of my binders the bottom of the sleeves were open without even using them.

I'm using fantasy flight sleeves which are a little thick and they fit fine but I'm hoping that the sleeves won't break over time.

My green binder had a defect. Contacted ship naked and they sent me a new one.

It is not a durability issue, it is a manufacturing issue. The sleeve was put too high on the binder page when the press heaten it to "glue" it, so the "seal" at the bottom is very thin, sometimes none-existant, so it breaks, making it open at top and bottom.

Right, I realize my issue is a defect, I'm just hoping that using thick sleeves doesn't eventually rip the sleeve bottoms out of the binder.

Same here.
Red binder pages weren't attached to the cover, they sent me a new one.

I have the same problem with the white binder.

I will contact Ship Naked after I finished sleeping the game for a replacement.

I like that the binders are cut 3/4 .
Two binders are slightly damaged/ badly made.

And I can't close the box now after sleeving all cards. If I take one binder out it closes. This works now so thqt I can read the binders to get familiar with the classes and cards.
If the card stock would have been thicker that would have been an even greater issue.
I had no problem putting two cards in a slot in the binder.

I am a bit worried though that the binders will need replacing if you use them a lot.
At this time they make some great reading material.

What I'm probably going to do is toss the insert. Everything will fit in the box if I do that. The box is so huge already, no idea why they didn't just increase the height a bit more so everything fits with sleeved cards.

I'm guessing it was a detail that was overlooked. I'm sure if they had to do it again, they'd make the box a bit taller.

As they are used for play rather than archival purposes, I'm sure they will break down over time; hopefully, later rather than sooner.

I'm wondering if anyone has found any good alternatives for when this happens when people need a working solution as the binders aren't for sale.
