Re: Rectangular C3G cards, updated 5.6.16 (Wave 25)

You can laminate an entire 8X11 sheet then make your cuts. The trick is finding a sweet spot for purchasing the appropriate thickness so the pages can be thick enough for wear and tear but thin enough to cut with a standard cutting board. After that, the rectangular cards will fit easily into baseball card sized pages for easy storage. I still keep my scape cards in CD folders but all my comic customs are card only and thus far I've had no complaints.

So does your laminator stick directly to the paper cards? I always assumed that the laminator works by bonding the plastic sheets to itself and that's why there was always a lip around the edge of what you are laminating.

Yes, the laminating device thermally adhesives the pouches to both sides of the paper, which allows the user to print, laminate then cut the cards.

Re: Rectangular C3G cards, updated 5.6.16 (Wave 25)

I myself laminate using individual 2-9/16 x 3-3/4 size pouches (see image) and these can be placed inside 9-card sheets in an album (see image). You can see the album is really thick by now. I also make albums of non-laminated cards, but the laminated ones are the ones used for play. (This was the rule after a couple of drink spilling accidents. )



I am going to spend some time this weekend trying to update the rectangular cards projects. Sporx has volunteered to continue helping me in this project, thanks Sporx!

Just imaging moving all those cards around with every new release to keep them in order.

Yeah it kind of suck which is why I start each letter of the alphabet on a new sheet so I don't have to move everything every time. My binder is just C3G with a few random custom superhero cards I've gathered through the days and it's a hefty 3" binder. I can't imagine the thickness with you guys that go all out with everything Heroscape.

Yes, it does indeed suck whenever I have to sort in new cards, now that there are 70+ pages of cards. I like the idea of starting each letter on a new page. I might have to go with that next time.

Re: Rectangular C3G cards, updated 5.6.16 (Wave 25)

I sort my cards into smaller groups of themes, that way when I'm building up themed armies or looking for specific synergy all the cards are in one place. I also split them up by DC, Marvel, or Indy to help me track down a specific card quicker. So one group of card might be Marvel Fighters & Crime Fighters (that aren't mutants as the mutants have their own packs), then another might be DC Criminals.

I did something similar at first but then the whole Mutant Fighters meant I was looking in multiple places anyway. I also went the Marvel/DC/Indy route but my son doesn't always remember where every character is from.

So I went straight alphabetical with gaps between each letter. I combated the theme issue by having a few printed sheets at the beginning of my binder. With the labeled dividers for each letter in my binder it's quick work flipping to that letter and tracking down the card I need.

I have a second binder of equal thickness for maps, rule books, and the Team Draft Cards for our favorite teams at designated point totals. Sometimes instead of individual drafted figures we draft from a group of team cards.

For the maps I create a card sized thumbnail of each map build I've printed and place that in the same 9 cards sleeve sheets as the cards. We can quickly scan through the images and select a map to build. Sort of a pictorial table of contents.

And credit for these updated cards goes to Sporx.
I myself have always dreaded going back to update cards. So, thanks Sporx for taking care of the updates.

I'm currently working on the new cards. 14 down and 34 to go.
(And then Sporx gets the job of proofreading them and inserting II, III,... where appropriate.)
