What sorts of containers have been found to be appropriate for storing large amounts of small cards? For example, in Descent: Second Edition, There are 155 cards which must be stored, and which measure 41mm by 63mm. Once they are sleeved (in these), they no longer fit in their little baggie; is there some company that makes/sells boxes that fit these small cards? Are there any commonly available containers that work well to fit these card sizes?

    Are those sizes before or after sleeving the cards? What size are they sleeved? What type of sleeves are you using? Aug 15, 2012 at 19:38
  • Also, even if they don't fit in their baggie, do they fit in a generic sandwich-sized baggie? Aug 15, 2012 at 20:49
  • They may fit in some larger baggie, but some sort of box-type structure seems more ideal to not allowing them to bend/fold out of shape as much as possible...

  • I believe the measure is for the cards themselves. I've updated the question with a link to the sleeves being used.

You can get little plastic boxes in all kinds of shapes and sizes.


Also the little clear plastic bags with press-in tops (known as zip-lock)


For storage of multiple card-based games there are all kinds of small craft storage units with drawers of varying sizes. Personally I use the bags for games with lots of elements such as Agricola, and just keep all the bags of pieces/cards in the Agricola box.

Magic: the Gathering fat-pack boxes are excellent for storing multiple cards in (I have a friend who stores Race for the Galaxy, Gloom, The Great Del Mutay, and some regular playing cards in one) You can get empty ones from ebay or M:tG stores such as Troll and Toad (I'm limited to 2 hyperlinks).


I usually use those white cardboard boxes to hold large amounts of cards. They come in various sizes. http://www.amazon.com/BCW-Count--Corrugated-Cardboard-Storage/dp/B000K3XQ8U/

Or I create my own boxes using plastic canvas. (sorry i do not have any better links for these at the moment) http://www.crafts-for-all-seasons.com/plastic-canvas-box.html

    Note that those white cardboard boxes are well outsized for the kind of cards he's talking about here - his cards are about 1.5"x2.5", a good half-inch smaller than those stock cards in both directions. Aug 16, 2012 at 19:20
