Shipping, Delivery, Samples, and the next wave OF MCG Premium Sleeves
Samples of our sleeves can bee seen below. Firstly we want to inform you that the production has been completed and we are now waiting the shipper to deliver them in our warehouse. We are few weeks off but we will have the sleeves soon. About a week ago we received samples so we can be sure that everything is ok. We matched sleeves – cards and everything is fine. We are quite happy with the quality of the material and the overall work of the manufacturer. The production run smoothly without any issues at all. Below you will see a variety of photos as we were trying the sleeves with different games. We checked several factors in order to be sure that these sleeves correspond to our needs.
You can find the pledges from the first campaign HERE
1. Quality: We work mostly the 100 micron thick sleeves and are just fine. Not very hard but as hard as they should be especially for card gamers who use sleeves all the time.
2. Cut Size: The size is as good as it should be. The cards fit perfectly in the sleeves and leave a very small gap that allows the card to move a bit. We were carefully the cards not to be exactly on the same height size as the sleeves cause they can be damaged. We did many tests about that. So we left about 1mm to all sleeves so the cards can totally safe.
3. Hard but not too hard: We were extra carefully on the plastic material and the thickness taking under consideration that players shuffle the sleeves, so we wanted the material to be perfect for shuffling without making the sleeves stuck each other.
4. Feeling: When you shuffle cards you don’t want your hands to stuck on the sleeves especially after few rounds. The material we use is really helpful since we tested the sleeves with card gamers and we had pretty positive feedback.
We had mentioned in our previous update that we wait 2 waves of sleeves. With the first wave we will start shipping sleeves based on the pledge starting with the sleeves of 25$, 40$, 60$ and some of 100$. The 2nd shipment’s ETA will be about 2-3 weeks after the first shipment. That’s why we mentioned we will be few weeks off. Thankfully this will be a small delay. Important: As soon we send the last package of sleeves we will launch few days later our 2nd campaign. In that campaign we will offer many new sleeve sizes. See below examples of what sleeves we will offer + the ones we were offering in our first campaign + some really new cool stretch goals.
