    Importance of Card Clips

    Hey guys! Just joined the forums! I'm quite a rookie in the forums, please kindly guide me along! 😉
    I was just wondering: Are card clips really essential for deck keeping? Is it paramount? Seems like they are much coveted, but what's the significance of clips?

    Welcome to the forums!

    There are two kinds of clips: the Porper clip and the stainless steel clip.

    The Porper clip keeps your cards crisp, flat and prevents them from warping. They also restore your cards to a great extent. There are many custom designs available ranging from the standard clip, to exotic leather. Although a little bit more expensive than the stainless steel clips, I highly recommend these for keeping your cards safe in the harshest of conditions.

    The stainless steel clips are slick and are sure to make a statement when you pull them out. They also keep your cards safe but will not prevent warping and restore cards in the same way as a Porper clip. But they look amazing and professional to carry your decks around in.

    Usually I carry two decks with me and one of them is in a carbon Porper clip and the other is in one of my stainless steel clips.

    I don't believe there are any bundle offers for Porper and steel clips but you can add them all to your cart in one order if that's what you were asking.
