@TheJuice401, thanks.
Yeah, I tried that but the listing was blocked for further shipping questions (outside
of what is already listed in the "faq").


@mrdanielcroker, sounds good! How did you contact him with your question?

Thanks, I've tried all the options available but they are all blocked/there is no way to contact the seller.

If you know what brand (or any other identifiable information) the bags are I would highly appreciate it,
then I could google for another way to purchase them.




And, I apologize for steering this thread off-topic! :-8

Edit: i just found a similar product on eBay, it was super cheap (bought a set of 100 bags) and I will report if they work ok once they arrive :yeah:

Has anyone considered these only for cartridge use? It seems like the individual game cases are a lot of coin.

*never mind, I totally messed up. Game cases are not expensive at all. Can someone confirm if the labels off of cover project fit them perfect?

I bought some incredible minty games from a dude and I asked him how he did it.

-never expose the boxes to light sun
-protect the boxes from the dust (protector boxes are usefull but keeping the games in glass is much better)
-you can seal the boxes (or use common cellophane) to protect them from humidity
-better if you use wooden shelves so they keep humidity.

there's a company in UK that does some but they're at least 2 buck a piece. otherwise, there's http://www.videogameboxprotectors.com/ which he's known as jimpoleshuk on nintendoage. very good product and there's a vast variety of protector for any systems. I highly recommend them as they're less than a buck a piece.

Thanks man.

Anyone have recommendations on how to clean the cart labels without removing the actual sticker or damaging it?

I bought some of those bags for my games that don't have their original game bag, then I place those in the original boxes and then my boxes get placed inside those clear box protectors:

All my carts are loose, one way I protect these carts is with plastic baggies and store them in a closed shelf.
For Canadian buyers looking for Universal Game cases I've only found Carr Maclean
https://www.carrmclean.ca/CategoryGroupBrowser.aspx?CategoryID=655&GroupNo=13995

Those cases are an excellent cheaper option to the real boxes in combination with The Cover Project and legal sized paper.

Simple cheapo way for me. Clean the carts, put them in plastic baggies, put baggies in a plastic container. Sure, a bit of work is required to fetch the game, but it's a hold over until I can get some universal game containers.

I dust them once in a while and try to keep an eye on my 2-year old. :P

I hope to go the UGC route once I can get some better shelving.

-Put them in protector cases.
-Take some HD pics so you don't have to keep them every time you have to look or check something on the box.
-Keep the games packaged in bubble wrap in a box bubble wrap clad too (No64DD advise to protect from hot and humidity).

Nice work Italia- Perfect!

It is worth the effort, and it can be done for very little cost. :yeah:

I know this about bubble wrap from UPS. Tempratures inside those big/small trucks everybody knows riding around the world can reach over 120F and drop below 0C. - it resists temprature change.

This is how one would want their package to arrive right?

I know sometimes they could've learned a thing or two from you haha!

I keep all my carts and boxs in a glass cabinet. I keep the carts out of the box as I play them frequently and don't want anything damage to be caused while getting the carts out.
