Are you sure you were short boards? Maybe you were over on the bags.

I use a board company called Image Guard, and they average 105 boards per pack of 100. Ultra Pro bags average about 101 bags per pack.

I get more upset by bags that aren't cut to the correct size or are damaged in some way.



The following stores are all stores that I've dealt with or have become friends with through the forums and I highly recommend them all.

It's been a while since I've bought bags and boards separately, bit I was always getting random left overs of one or the other. I just saved them until the next time.

I am just impressed that someone actually counted out the actual number of boards in a package.

I always open a package of bags and boards at the same time and put the boards into the bags to have them ready. I usually have a couple of one or the other left over.

I've run into this a few times and it irks the hell out of me.

On a slightly different (but related note), does anyone know a cost effective place to order bags and boards? I've been trying to find an alternative to spending the $8 or so dollars that my local comic book stores sell them for. I bought 200 inexpensive bags and boards on ebay, but the bags are complete garbage. They're super thin and the side seems rip almost immediately to coming in contact with a book. Luckily I bought these for my personal books, but I've gotten some inventory that has no bags so I will need to purchase some for my CCL Store.
