Which texture is better? Matte art sleeves or Brushed art sleeves?
There is no ‘best card sleeve texture’. The card sleeve texture that is best for you will depend entirely upon your personal preferences and what you are using the sleeves for. From tournament play to casual kitchen table games your needs will vary and so will the card sleeves that are the best for your situation.
Brushed sleeves have a smoother texture than our matte sleeves, meaning that they have a smoother shuffle feel than matte sleeves. Cards will glide over each other more easily but decks sleeved with new brushed sleeves might be a little slippery off the bat. Matte sleeves will provide some more resistance when shuffling.
