So, as I may have mentioned previously, I laminate all my cards. I find this far better in most cases to using a plastic card sleeve, and it allows me to mark directly my cards with dry erase for things like Damage and whatnot.

Yesterday I had my first Lamination accident. I use full sheets of laminate, and laminate 6 cards at a time. For whatever reason I had a shift, and Xenobi's card wound up half-way over Chronin's. I was all kinds of OH NO!

I managed to remove the laminate, and salvaged Chronin's card... but Xenobi was a total loss. I'm very happy his card is available on the forum... it seems so strange to place an order to the webstore all the way to Europe from the US for 1 card.

Thank you, Pulp Monsters, for making this available to me... just another reason to love you guys. :)

I thought about Laminating Cards, but decided against it for exactly the same reasons as your accident!

I've started putting mine in rigid cases now (good old paranoid me LoL)

Mine go in little plastic sleaves made for MTG cards.
Works exactly the same way without the chance of any accidents.

I put mine in a binder of plastic sleeves. For each game, I can arrange to have an entire team visible at a glance just by moving them to the same sheet. It also works great with dry erase markers for Damage tracking.

That is a cool idea.

I use the plastic sleeves as well. I know a lot of people like the binder method but for me I want to pick up and handle the cards. Maybe I'm just wierd that way. I love CARDs when gaming and binder sheets make me thing of army lists and that kills something for me. I know...I'm a wierd guy.

Nope, not weird - I'm the same (OK, possibly we're both weird)

I like to have written out Teams too though, so probably that makes me weird . . .

I don't use any sleeves I just write directly on the cards.

I have tried the little plastic sleeves in the past but really feel like they move too much... that's why I prefer to laminate my cards. I have laminated over 100 cards between Rezolution and Pulp City, and have had ONE accident so far, so I am counting myself lucky.

:D

I really feel like Aberrant dropped the ball with Rez when they introduced Warlands. I understand their position that they are just a mom and pop Company and can't keep up with both, but It still felt like we (rez players) got abandoned. Lots of missing content etc... so I kinda drifted away. However, I am being published in the next Data Dump I am told... so that's cool.
