ALL CARDS SLEEVES SIZES HAVE BEEN UNLOCKED! Hurrah!! :-)
For several years we have been producing quality card sleeves at competitive prices, but with this campaign we want to give an option to those players who are always looking for the best of the best. The Perfect sleeves are 120 microns thick and are available here at the formidable price of low-cost sleeves!
Only 0.99 euro per pack (50 sleeves set) with the Gargantuan reward! We have also standard sleeve packs available as addons from 0.70 euro per pack (100 sleeves set, 60 microns).
You will be able to collect your pledge even at the upcoming fairs in Essen and Lucca (see the Shipping section below) thus avoiding any shipping costs.
The “Premium of the Premium”! The sleeves with the best durability on the planet! Standard sleeves usually have from 40 to 50 microns thick, premium sleeves can reach 80-100 microns, while the Giochix Perfect sleeves are 120 microns!
Cheap! In this campaign, we are aiming to produce the largest amount of sleeves possible, in order to reduce the production costs. This is why the price is similar to, if not lower than, the price of the less expensive sleeves generally found on the market. With the Gargantuan Perfect pack reward, the approximate price is about 0.99 euro per pack of sleeves!
Pick-up! During the Pledge Manager phase, you will be able to choose to pick up your order for free at the Fair in Essen (Germany), or at the Fair in Lucca (Italy), or at our headquarters in Rome and avoid shipping costs.
Several formats! In this campaign, you may purchase sleeves in the most popular sizes used by board and card games with a thickness, never seen before, of 120 microns. In addition to this, you can also have our standard sleeves available as addons.
Weights are approximate. The sleeves are made in polypropylene, acid free. Different sizes will be added when the campaign reaches the Stretch goals!

The Giochix standard sleeves are 60 microns thick, therefore above average, and have a low cost. They are all 100 sleeves packs. During the Pledge Manager you can add as many standard sleeves as you want.
Mini-sleeves will cost 0.80 euro (41x63mm, 43x65mm, 45x68mm, 60x60mm), medium sleeves 0.99 euro (56x87mm, 59x92mm, 63.5x88mm, 58x89mm) and large sleeves 1.10 euro per pack (70x120mm and 80x120mm).
After the campaign, you will receive an email that will give you access to your Pledge Manager. The Pledge Manager is a special area of our site, where you can review your pledge and choose the type of sleeves you wish to purchase. You can also add more rewards if you want.
In the Pledge Manager you will choose the Perfect sleeves format you desire and you can also add any Standard sleeves you want. Then you will also be able to review the details of your shipping address and pay your shipping costs.
This project is on two crowdfunding platforms simultaneously: Giochistarter and Kickstarter.
The sleeves are the same (as are the stretch goals) on both platforms. The total funds raised by the campaign (which will determine the stretch goals that will be unlocked) will be the sum raised by both websites. This sum will be automatically shown on Giochistarter in the upper-left of the page, you will be able to see the total number of the backers and the total funds pledged.

Risks and challenges
Availability. You must take into consideration that the shipment date is indicative. We will do our best to respect such date, but delays may occur for reasons beyond our control, such as production delays, or issues with transport or Customs. Please note also that it's a shipment date, not a delivery date. Delivery timing depends on the place where you live and on the shipment method selected.
Components. The specifications of components and contents, images and illustrations must be considered as merely indicative of the final product and may be subject to change without notice.
Fairs. It is possible for the game's shipment to be scheduled during a time frame close to a large game fair, such as Essen Fair in Germany or Lucca Comics and Games in Italy. It is important to note that we will be showing/selling the game at these fairs independently of campaign shipment status. Attending these fairs is vital to the game's chances for success.
Missing Fair pickup. If you chose this option and the game is not available at the Fair (for any reason), or you simply missed to pick it up, you will able to change your shipping method by clicking the button "Change shipment" on your order page on www.giochistarter.it. You will have to pay the shipping costs.
Order Canceling. An order can be canceled and fully refunded before the end of the campaign by clicking on the specific button on the order page. After the end of the campaign, the order can still be canceled within 15 days from the campaign ending date by sending us an e-mail with the specific request. Please note that in this case the refund will not include the processing costs and will be limited to the 90% of the amount paid. Besides these options, the order is considered valid and is not cancelable/refundable.
Complaints deadline. We will no longer accept complaints about this campaign's products after 12 months from the date of availability of the game. For any problems related to shipping, like damage or missing items inside the shipping package, complaints must reach us within 7 days from the date of delivery.
Shipments. We ship by postal service or by supported courier (UPS, GLS, SDA, DHL, etc.).
We reserve the right to separate the contents of order into different shipments or to merge the contents of different orders in the same shipment to improve the shipment's delivery speed and any required logistics management. If this happens, there will not be any additional costs to you as a customer nor right to any refund.
Shipments made by courier or by insured postal service can be tracked. Shipments made by the postal service cannot be traced and, although it happens very rarely (0.1-1% of cases), they can be lost.
Courier shipments may take about 1-2 days for Italy, 3-6 days for EU/US/Canada and 1-2 weeks for the rest of the world. Postal service shipments require about 1-2 weeks for Italy, 3-10 weeks for EU/US/Canada and 4-14 weeks for the rest of the world. Please note that the postal service can be slow and may suffer several weeks of additional delay, especially near or during the holidays, like Christmas. This happens very rarely but it is still a possibility and is out of our control. If you would like faster delivery or wish to avoid any risk of a long delay in the arrival of the package, please use a courier service.
Courier shipment assurance insures against package loss, destruction, and package damage. Postal service insurance insures against package loss or destruction. Insurance requires a customer claim to be made when the package is delivered: if you spot any damage, please ask the postal carrier to make you a receipt "accepted with reserve". Then inform us immediately.
Please remember that after 7 days from receipt of the package, the carriers and post do not accept claims about any damage that may have occurred. Please note also that the game box is not replaceable. The carrier company to decide unquestionably whether to accept the complaint and to provide the reimbursement that they deem appropriate.
If the game failed to arrive because of your mistake (wrong address, recipient absent, not picking up at courier/postal warehouse, etc.), you will have to pay an additional shipping/warehousing cost for us to re-send/re-deliver your game. This cost will also include the return costs of the game. On the other hand, if the error is ours, we will send it again to you at our expense. If the package is lost or destroyed, we will reship it at our expense, only if it was insured. In this case, it will be the customer's responsibility to choose for a second shipment, a safer or more reliable method if the first one did not work and to pay any difference in cost if any. The choice of non-traceable shipping methods for a second shipment will automatically exonerate us from any responsibility regarding the delivery of the game.
Please note that we will not reship any game without first having investigated what happened to the first shipment. This can be processed quickly through the courier service option but may require an additional 1-5 weeks through the postal service.
If you live outside of the European Community, customs taxes may be added. If this happens, the transporter company could add a cost to the management of Customs. This usually doesn't happen for boardgames; however, please check your country's rules and regulations as this aspect will not be our responsibility.
USA-friendly, Canada-friendly, EU friendly. A project may have a "friendly" indication indicating that there are no customs fees in the specified country or area. So "USA-friendly" means that there are no customs fees for shipments to the USA. In some cases, this property may be limited to the type of shipping indicated (for example, only for the postal service).
However, please remember that this aspect only applies to shipments that include the game/product object of the project and the items shipped with it. Does not include any other orders made separately on our sites.
Please consider also that the "friendly" indication may in very rare cases and for reasons beyond our control lapse if the international commercial conditions change. For example, participants in Great Britain could find themselves paying customs duties for Brexit; the same could happen for participants in the US if the Government adds specific duties for boardgames. In the unlikely event that this should occur, you will be required to pay the import duties, as required by the law of your country of residence.
Pledge Manager. After a few weeks from the end of the campaign, the Pledge Manager will be active. This procedure allows participants to confirm and revise their order, to purchase addons and to update their profile/delivery address. The Pledge manager will be up for a few days to a specific deadline. We strongly recommend all participants to complete the pledge manager within the expiration date. If not, please consider that:
- Any campaign special price for addons expires with the Pledge Manager deadline. After that date, all addon will be available at a normal price.
- We will not able to guarantee the availability of any exclusive content made in limited quantity.
- We will not able to guarantee the scheduled shipment date as a delay could happen.
- We will not able to guarantee the pickup in Rome or at a Fair's Stand (if available in the project).
- (21 days)
