Sleeve Kings exists to bring the best quality sleeves at the lowest possible prices to the market. This means we are going directly to the factory for crazy cheap pricing but also working with them for the highest possible quality. We bring our shipments to the USA via boat and frequently consolidate our shipments with other products going to the USA for even cheaper boat shipping.
For any order shipping outside the USA we are able to keep the prices low by shipping directly out of China to that foreign address. This keeps our costs even lower since we don't have to pay to ship sleeves from China to our warehouse in the USA to then immediately ship them right back to Asia or other areas of the world. We know this means your order can take 7-10 business days or longer to arrive, but it means cheaper shipping, less storage costs and lower prices for all of our customers.
We believe that by working directly with the factory rather than through some middleman, that we can provide the best sleeves possible at the lowest cost. We hope you will be satisfied with your sleeves and welcome any feedback by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
They often say that copying is the highest form of praise and since Mayday pioneered the board and card game sleeving era, their color scheme is nearly synonymous with the size of sleeves being sold. This brand recognition is indeed called "trade dress" under intellectual property laws and is not something to be copied lightly.
Luckily for us, we have a special relationship with Mayday and also sell their sleeves on our site. We have permission from Mayday to use their "trade dress" for our sleeves, and believe we are unique in that regard. We are grateful for their cooperation, it means our customers can more easily identify which sleeves fit which game at a glance.
Import fees including customs, import tariffs, VAT, and other international fees associated with your order may be charged by customs or other agencies once your order reaches your country's border.
We declare the value of our product at our direct replacement cost so this amount is usually very low when compared to customs declaration minimums.
We cannot predict when a customer's customs department will flag an order and request import taxes to be paid because they do not believe the value of the product to be what we've provided them. Other times, if you order a lot of product from other countries, your customs department may flag you and inspect your packages more rigorously, thus your address or name may cause red flags to be raised.
So, unfortunately, we do not cover these fees and this is the responsibility of the customer. We can attempt a reshipment after your order is returned to us. But it would be best to try shipping to a different person or address if you can do so.
