    I always buy supplies at a local shop. I'm sure there are places that sell mail order, but most supplies are too heavy (at least in quantity that would get a decent discount) to justify the shipping cost.

    I buy mine locally as well because I get them at cost from a dealer friend. Even if I didn't though I'd still buy them locally. Shipping costs would be pretty prohibitive.

    I make mine from Amazon boxes. I bought one that I use as a template and then cut out new ones as I need them.

    I try and buy from the monthly card show, but when i can't i buy from columbia cards. Usually on ebay they offer a coupon for $5 off if you buy 3 items and free shipping so I wait until i need a few different supplies.

    Yep, BCW. Look online for promo codes if they have one going. I prefer the three row boxes to mix in sleeved and top loaded cards.

    What they said. With card shops drying up you could also try a local comic book shop if thereís any of those in your area. Iíve gotten some locally that they sell for gaming cards

    thanks guys. I will check my with only card shop soon (when I can drive again due to my knee surgery) I figured the shipping would kill me on them. I used to buy them years back at shows.

    I had a BCW account but didn't meet their requirements recent . I use 3200 counts not as heavy - stack 20 high . 5000 won't fit in space I have . If I had pallet space I would use 5000 .

    I have always used 5,000. Yes it gets very heavy but has always worked well for me. Just the ones I have are getting so old and worn...

    Sure, any decent card shop should sell them. You could also try comic shops and game shops that deal in card games like Magic and Pokemon. They all would have accounts with Diamond Comics or other distributors of such things, and should be able to order you some.

    Also, not all boxes are created equal. I have one 5000-count boxes with rows wide enough to hold toploaders perpendicular to the inserts, but all my others are just a little too narrow. Most 3200-count boxes I have can hold toploaders, but a couple are too narrow. If you're in a shop, check that out. Could tilt your opinion.

    Apropos of nothing, I've switched to card hotels, the things that hold twelve 800-count boxes. Prices online are crazy, but my LCS sells them for $29.95 assembled with all the boxes, which is an amazing deal. At least, sort of. Two 5000-count boxes are $10, so it's over 3x more per card, but I'm not on the quality-not-quantity plan. And with so many Magic cards, they just make more sense to store them by set that way.

    I’m curious, Who makes a monster box that fits top loaders? And do they also fit team bags?
