  New KMC Sleeve - What do you think?
KMC has introduced a new type of sleeve that has already gained some popularity in Japan. KMC first introduced us to the Perfect Fit, or Perfect Size, sleeve which actually fits inside a standard sleeve. Now the company has come out with an oversize sleeve that is large enough to hold a standard sleeve.

As you can see below, the new sleeve includes some artwork around the border to add a little flair to the look of your standard sleeve.

Here's a look at the new sleeve with a standard size black sleeve inside it.

We've only been given a sample of the new sleeve at this point. Before we decide whether to carry the new design, we are interested in hearing what our customers have to say about it. Do you like the new sleeve? Would you use something like this? Why or why not? Post your thoughts here.
It's actually pretty elegant and subtle. If it were the same price as most sleeves then I'd consider buying them. Also, if they were cheaper than the normal sleeves that most of us buy then I'd buy it over the others.
I'm sure that the more mature gamers would prefer something like this but the kids would be a different story.

Not sure if this helps you guys any, but you said to post our thoughts. =P
Thanks for posting. Your response is exactly the type of feedback we are looking for.

We don't know exactly what the price would be for the oversized sleeves. However, based on the initial information we received, we would expect the cost per sleeve to be a little higher than a standard sleeve (probably around 1/2 a penny per sleeve).
this looks nice
Interesting concept...maybe if there were other designs available...

Also, while it may be outside of your product selection, what about Queen's Blade sleeves? HLJ and other sites in Japan carry them, and they are very popular...among select clientele...

Just a thought...
