I'm looking into getting more sheets to hold my talents and career cards, and I want to find an alternative to the ones I currently use (I don't want to buy the quantity that they sell them in).

I found these on amazon, and they seem to fit but may be too snug (1 5/8 x 2 5/8 sleeves for 1 5/8 x 2 1/2 cards).

Has anyone used them before? Alternatively, have any of you guys tried any other binder sleeves?

My players used those but with bigger pockets (9 per page, good for Actions). It worked for them.

I tried to keep all of the cards organized in such sheets but it was too problematic with double-sided cards and new ones constantly wrecking my system.

Here here! I'm slowly moving back to just organizing everything into decks. It seems like the system was made for it anyway, and I do get tired of having to shift all my cards whenever I need to add new ones to the binder.

But yeah, I've even created a method for random encounters (as recommended in the GM's guide) by splitting the location cards into two decks, one for wilderness/road encounters, and another for urban encounters...If the PCs generate a Chaos Star or Sigmar's comet on a check that involves travel or exploration (via exposition role playing...i.e. "my character walks around town listening for the latest gossip"), I draw a card from the appropriate deck and simply put either a negative (chaos star) or positive(comet) spin on it...using a separate homebrew table for generating baddies and/or goodies.

TLDR: organize your cards into, it's awesome

I use boxes with fitting inserts and organize the cards in different decks (magic, blessings, support/teamwork/social, reactions, melee, ranged, enhancement cards etc.) Have seven of these boxes now :)

Did the insets come with the boxes above? It looks like a very nice match with card sizes. Where did you pick these up? Almost looks like a tackle box?

No one has experience with that specific binder-sleeve, though? Hmm. I may just pick it up and report back.

It's raaco boxes. You buy the boxes and then you can buy seperate inserts. There are inserts that fit all the card sizes, even career cards. They just fit perfectly. I get them in Denmark through a hobby store, but don't know if you can get them anywhere else as raaco is a danish company as far as I know.

But you may be able to order them directly from raaco. I have 7 of the boxes for my WFRP3 stuff. A bit og free space. I could manage with 6 boxes, but I like to keep it organized better.

Got the sleeves in today. They are a hair too small for the talent cards. Blech.

Bah, wish i had read this sooner, i placed an order for 2 packets and they arrived last night.  Like you said, just a hair too small to be useful.

Bummer.

Awesome, looks like I can get Raaco boxes locally. This should provide a very nice storage solution. Thanks Gallows :D

Any idea/suggestions on which box models and internal containers you purchased?

np mate, hope you find them at a nice price. Once you have stored your stuff in raaco boxes, you're never going back to anything else. They're absolutely brilliant :)

 I'd love to find out where to get these raaco boxes in Canada? I've got a bunch of the WFRP3 supplements now and I'm starting to realize that they need something like this to cart them around.

Binders are a good alternative I suppose, but these boxes are pretty sweet and would be my first choice.
