You can not only protect your cards, but you can also use the Shuber Plates to build a pocket card press. Take two large paper clips of the kind shown below.
Clip one on each short end of the deck enclosed in the Shuber Plates. Then remove the wire handles from the clips.
The plates evenly distribute the clamping force of the clips, pressing the cards flat against each other and against the steal plates. You can also use just one clip and stand the deck upright on its short end.
The plates themselves are very robust. You can use any stainless steel cleaner to make them shine as new. I personally like to have a little patina develop on mine. The rubber band will at some point fail. Rubber does age and will get brittle after a few years. And even earlier, depending on how you use and stretch them, they can break. We do sell replacement packs of five, but you can certainly use other bands or even clips as shown above.
