Please take note, all packages will require a signature.
Open the Box!
Open the shipping box on the side with the address and take note of the little CAUTION notice. A minimal amount of tape has been used in the packaging and the bubble wrap is held in place by pressure. Follow the instructions on the CAUTION notice to easily reach your card boxes.
Yeah, they're beauties.
But let's not forget, the boxes are not the product, they're just another layer of protection for your cards, albeit very decorative ones.
Each box is sealed with a mana palette sticker on its front slide-out flap. Once that's removed and you've gotten the box open (it may be a tight fit FYI), you'll find your cards are bagged and surrounded by a cushioning layer of foam.
While the box and bags are ph neutral, the foam is not. If you're not planning on shipping the cards anywhere, we recommend disposing of the foam.
The cards themselves are double bagged: each self-sealing bag holding two smaller bags that contain roughly 50 cards apiece.
Be sure to check out the note that's included too.
We hope you enjoy them!
For those of you that are getting one of the random assortments of cards, there'll be no mana palette sticker or any of the notes. Thankfully your package is much easier to remove from the box without spilling it everywhere!
