Frequently Asked Sleeving Questions - Page 48

post #471 of 1100
I ship all day for a home buisness, I also buy tons of crap from china. A 40 lb box from china costs me $10 to have it here in 5 days. I don't know how china post can make any money or even stay afloat with the rates they charge. Either way, this guy shouldn't be using dhl period. The only reason I can thInk of is that dhl has better online services / tracking / and also does free pickups.

New section added to the FAQ. Please give this a look as this is "what I believe" to be the future of sleeving.

Where To Find Custom Sleeving Providers / Sleeving Suppliers All In One Place?
– Is there any places dedicated to hooking up customers with providers? Click to Expand (Click to show)


For a long time the answer to this has been a resounding NO!

For the most part the paid sleeving community and sleeving suppliers have been in a cut-thought battle for money which has been fueled by greed and the almighty dollar. This has been something I have been fighting ever since I got into this hobby as I made it a point to share most is not all of my "secrets" with everyone.

This battle for me intensifies as Lutro0 Customs enters the field of sales itself more then it ever has been. So I decided to do something that is unheard of in the business world.

I decided to bring all of the custom sleeving service providers and all of the sleeving supply distributors together in one place to offer their services as people ask for them, in an organized and official manner.

This means everyone who is looking to offer paid services or paid sleeving goods into one place, have them be subject to verification to ease the customer and to have them all work together and put the customer first, which is how this hobby and providers should have started out.

Instead of tons of shoddy suppliers and sub-par sleeving service providers doing everything they can to put themselves first to make a buck we have come together to make the customer first and give them the choice of sleeving supply vendor and custom sleeving provider.

Those that have chosen to ask to be verified and become a part of this new Facebook Group have taken the step to show that they care more about the customer then they do personal profit.

In anyones eyes this should be seen as a step in the right direction and totally against the tide of conventional business. Its time to put the customer first and to promise a fantastic product as well as a superb custom job that is worth every penny of the person seeking these solutions.

Please check out the following Facebook Group and read what it is all about.

Please check it out here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/WorldwidePCSleevingServicesGroup/

This is for people seeking services worldwide and shops/buisnesses that seek to put the customer first.

The group idea came from and was created by me. I have put 2 others that I trust very much to admin and approve all suppliers and sleevers to put the customers mind at ease that they are purchasing from verified producers. I have also pooled in my own jobs for those that want the option is seeking someone closer.

So if you are looking for sleeving supplies, or a custom sleever for your project or mod I suggest you give the group a read, learn how to post a request and get a quote from the verified suppliers in the group. More suppliers are being added all the time and the group is relatively new so be patient and someone will get with you to set you up with the proper supplier/sleever or the shop/company itself will reply to your detailed request.

If you are interested in being added to it just follow the rules and you will be verified upon inspection.

I believe this to be the future market place for sleeving, give it a look and be a part of the revolution.

Hey guys-
I actually have been reading through here looking for advice about sleeving etc, got EVERYTHING I needed (I actually joined to thank Lutro!, THANK YOU!) and to say how happy I am with sleeve-modding.com).

In response to adi518, I agree, the shipping seemed odd. But email him to make it right, he will!

I placed the order on Dec 29th and then emailed him about "discounts in December" and "discounts on order's above $xxx for shipping" in the fine print . Approx 19 min later he emails back and says: " HI Jon, No worry about the discount (15%) ! You will have it ! but the sending will be unfortunate next year due to the holiday. + samples of all our color 6 mm sleve. Hope to enjoy !" He then sent me some links to his shop and said for me to get $15 worth of stuff, Santa is here!

I received a properly reduced bill and recived it in about 4 days after the holiday, awesome.

Quality is exactly like what you would read here, the bulk 6mm shrink tube is less than stellar; and Emil told me himself it was, and said he's working on it, but eveything else is awesome and I'm kinda picky.

I dunno, he has my business, the quality is 9.5/10, the service is 10/10 and the shipping was resonable after Emil reduced it. He has set the bar pretty damn high.

Sorry for the novel... Jon

I was wondering if there is like a standard length for PSU cables since I have all of mine zip tied up for a clean case and I really don't want to cut them out to measure.
