Frequently asked questions
Our organizers are 100% designed and produced in Italy; raw materials are produced in Europe. This, in order to be sure that every single piece of our products is compliant to the highest quality standards. We personally monitor all supply and production steps, from hdf thickness and aspect, to manufacturing quality, to packaging. Nothing is left to chance.
For all our products, the main material used is HDF, High Density Fibreboard. This is a high-pressed wood pulp, with a very high mechanical resistance when compared to other wood based materials such as plywood. It is compliant to all regulations for safety and international shipping (REACH/TSCA, respectively for Europe and America), which are mainly involved in the content of binder. It is also compliant to CARB2 regulation, which is the strictest worldwide for health and safety. It is produced in France using wood with exclusive European origin, which is certified from woodlands with controlled reforestation management. We don’t use any chemical cover such as UV printing.
Packing is cut to the bone; we care a lot on this point and avoid waste as much as possible. We just use a plastic bag to protect the product, and nothing else.
All of our products come in hdf (wooden) lasercut boards in a plastic bag, together with a cover and full, detailed instructions. Once you open the bag, you will pop pieces out of the boards as you usually do with cardboard tokens. Instructions will guide you from which pieces will have to be popped out of the board for each tray, to where every piece will go, step-by-step. All you’ll need is a bit of wood or PVA glue. The last page of the instructions is a guide to reinsert all trays in the correct sequence in the original game box. No skills are needed, joints’ shape and instructions guarantee an easy to assemble experience for everyone!
All of our products have guide lasercut engravings which show the exact slot where to put the pieces. We usually draw pieces to be language independent; written engravings will be in English language. Also, instructions have pictures of each tray and slot, filled with the correct piece type.
Absolutely no skill is needed to assemble our organizers; instructions will guide you step-by-step and the shape of the joints guarantees that pieces can’t be put in the wrong place. If you strictly follow the instructions, you won’t have any problem assembling. Joints are very soft, you won’t absolutely need hammers or mallets to assemble, so, if for any case you put a piece in the wrong space, you won’t break anything to remove it. PVA glue is needed to assemble, so you’ll have plenty of time to realize if something went wrong during assembly, and reassemble during drying time.
Just a little PVA or wood glue. No hammer or wallet is needed, and no skills in particular!
Yes, all instructions are both in English and Italian.
Unless otherwise specified, our organizers and accessories are compatible with sleeved cards.
We use Sapphire brand sleeves, which can be found on our website, for all our tests; these sleeves are 60micron thick, which is a good compromise between penny and premium sleeves. Card slots in our organizers are usually wider than the decks they hold, so we can’t exclude the compatibility with more than 60micron thick sleeves. If you use premium or very thick sleeves, don’t hesitate to contact us for further information: we can provide you with all slot measures in order to evaluate the compatibility with your favourite sleeves.
For some games we designed a double version of the organizer, one for the base game and one for base plus expansions. Wendake is an example: here we have one organizer for base game and one for base + expansion.
For other games, we mention compatibility for base game and expansions. In this case, slots are designed to hold all components for base plus mentioned expansions; if you have just the base game, some slots will simply remain empty. If an organizer for base + expansions is used to hold just the base game, we can’t guarantee vertical storage safety; if this is your need, don’t hesitate to contact us for further information.
Our customer service is at your disposal for any question and information request. Not only can we deliver spare parts if something is missing for any reason or if a piece accidentally breaks during assembly. We will also answer all your questions and clear any doubt if, for example, you get stuck during assembly, or if, for any reason, you don’t feel sure during any assembly step. We’re here at your disposal, to help. We speak either English or Italian, and a bit of Spanish too. Automatic translators will do the rest!

Of course you can, you can use a lot of different varnishes and paints, we recommend using water-based products. You can use the spare sides of the boards to make all the experiments you want, before going to the pieces. We use hdf, high density fibreboard, as material.
