I ahve been looking for standard inserts to use ina card game, and can't seem to find any.

Has anyone found a company that sells standard sized inserts (the formed plastic ones that you would find in a game like Uno, Lost Cities, etc)?

If not do you know the industry term for these? I am surprised that i can't find anyone that has these so I must be searching for the wrong words

I would be surprised to find a company that sells them. There is no "standard size" for inserts, but of course there are the box standards of each publisher, to which the inserts must comply.

look for "molded inserts" or custom plastic molding, etc. Most of these types of components use injection molding.

I too have been wondering where I might find such a thing... I finally decided the easiest way would be to stalk the game shelves of the thrift stores, looking for crappy (or incomplete) games that have them... of course if you're looking for them in bulk, this may not be the best solution...

try "Vacuum formed" or "Vacuum molded" plastic/trays. sometimes "Vacu-formed".

here's the wikipedia article:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vacuum_forming

and i know i've watched videos on... i think youtube, but it might have been constructables or wikihow about do-it-yourselfing it, and it actually seemed pretty reasonable.
