here are some on amazon, i use them for dials and small ship tiles
these pages in general are made of a stiffer plastic not soft like ultra pro pages
but before using they can be "loosened up" and work great
Yes, the ones u/murdamitten5191 linked to are vinyl/PVC and should probably be avoided.
The same manufacturer makes vinyl-free/PVC-free versions of the same product: click here. (These are the ones I use.)
I don't really see a point in sleeving the gear cards. You're never shuffling them or handling them in really any way.
I use BCW 20-count coin pages (https://www.amazon.ca/20-Twenty-20-Pocket-Collecting-Supplies/dp/B002KDNAU2) in a binder for all my gear. When it comes time to shop, I flip through the pages.
Then for my gear grids, I just cut four of those pages down to 3x3 pages. So at most, gear is being removed from the binder page and put into a gear grid immediately. No need to sleeve the cards.
Yes, but with 20, since that's the number you need for each color. Like this.
Then you just flop out the power tiles, hand everyone their faction baggie, and distribute your painstakingly photocopied (or printed from the website) cheat sheet with all of the power tiles and cards on them. The game then sets up in about five minutes and has all of the vital information in hand for every player, which makes it a quick teach and play.
Most of my collection is in 2x2 flips, but I also have some coin capsules. I have a large plastic box made to hold most of my flips, and I also bought these sheets that fit inside a three ring binder. I like my binder a little better as it’s easier to see and show off what I have.
I have mine in pvc safe paper flips and I wrote the date and mint on them and store them in separate binders in these pages https://www.amazon.com/BCW-20-Pocket-Pages-Pocket-Size/dp/B002KDNAU2/ref=asc_df_B002KDNAU2/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=309839945011&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=123389967417149020&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvde... l
Most of the cards are a fairly standard size (often referred to as Standard European size). Not as ubiquitous as American (MtG) size, but not too hard to find a few different vendors. Mayday, FFG, Paladin, Ultra Pro - they all make these sleeves.
The slightly harder ones are the gear cards. Personally I don't sleeve those. I store them in 2x2 coin sheets. I used trimmed down sheets for gear grids. I prefer this over sleeving all the gear cards.
The black tiles are cool. The other modules are OK.
I'd also consider getting 4 pages of these BCW 2x2" pocket pages to keep the upgrade tiles in for easy setup and tear-down. I just cut off the last 5th row.
Mage is currently the only company taking orders for settlement sleeves, but yeah they're having massive production problems. I'd wait until they or another company (Paladin) gets their shit together and operates a real store.
For gear grids you can buy these, they fit the gear cards really nicely. Earlier today someone posted a picture of binding those coin pages to sleeves that fit over the cardstock grids, that's probably what you'd want to look into.
I bought these:
I then cut each page down to a 3x3 grid. Works flawlessly! Great for: protecting them when they are on the table, keeping the cards secure, and super helpful with the tear down/setup time. Since the gear cards never get shuffled and are hardly ever touched, I didn't see the need to sleeve them when using this method.
Going with mage $40 + 1 location addon + 1 event addon + coin binder pages for gear cards and I'm all set for core + gamblers + handful of old expansions; buying sleeves for new expansions at that bridge in 2019.
I'd recommend re-basing them onto clear acrylic bases. I use bases from Litko.net. This won't allow you to use the inserts on the minis, but I just keep a coin protector sheet nearby with the inserts in them (tape the tops so they don't slide out) and reference when needed. Other games really benefit from those coin sleeves (Kemet, for example).
Buy 3 of these, cut off the bottom row and the part for the binder rings and you've got a really good storage solution. As long as you put everything back in place at the end, you cut down set-up time by a lot. This way it's also easier for every play to see which tiles are left, you just hand them the page(s).
I bought these and keep all the gear cards in them sorted by where they are attained. So the Bonesmith has all the bone cards on a single page and etc. After all that I have all my promo cards in a single page, along with odds and ends like green knight and such.
These trays are great, I would love to have them. I will watch for stock. However in the mean time, I will continue to use, these.
They are a little larger than 9x9 but that just means you have places for your tokens as well.

I am currently using a plastic 16-game case that fits in my Mario 3DS backpack. I have an idea of what you are talking about here. Its a good idea if you have a large collection and I think the coin one is a good size, the pockets are 2"x2" You may be able to get half sheets or cut the sheets in half and put them into a smaller binder.
You can get some collectible coin holder pages and just put the tiles in those. It's much easier to just pass the pages than look at individual "stacks" of tiles. These worked great.
If you ever need any resources just check out the "Files" section of any game on BGG
9 out of 10 times the file you need is one of the top ranked ones.
Also buy these, you'll thank me later.
So I stumbled upon this on Amazon searching for a way to store my gameboy games. Figured this would get some use here.
I've enjoyed storing the gear cards in coin sheets. The location boards, where you get the recipe to craft things, doesn't tell you want the items do. So unless you memorize them, you have to rifle through a lot of gear cards comparing, looking at stats, etc. It's much easier to store them in these sheets, put them in a binder, and be able to see a bunch at once easily.
As an added bonus you can use these for the gear grid - plus they're pretty cheap - from $7.50 on eBay to $9 on Amazon.
Found similar ones on amazon :) Here
Does she like them in 2x2s so she can write important stuff on them or totally raw?
This type of page holds the coins in 2x2 holders... https://www.amazon.com/BCW-20-Pocket-Pages-Pocket-Size/dp/B002KDNAU2
This type holds them raw (although the flip tops can be fiddly... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07VC26XZZ/ref=sspa_mb_hqp_detail_mobile_aax_0?ie=UTF8&psc=1
If you go with 2x2s buy her a "flat clinch" stapler as this leaves the ends of the staple flat... less to scratch fingers and other coins.
Depending on her mechanical skills, there are light touch versions. Just watch out for the cost of the staples. For the well rated one I have it's cheaper to buy 1000 staples shipped from Thailand than buy 100 through Amazon. On the plus side 1000 covers a lot of 2x2s (two or three per).

I use these. Takes a minute to hold the chip in securely, especially in the top row. They get there, though.
It is a really really solid game, and if you end up loving it as much as we did, there are some very simple amazon purchases you can make to make setup take <5mins.
Power Tile holder - Cut off 1 row and the binder holes and you can store all of the power tiles in here. These fold in half and fit perfectly in the box. Setup is as simple as taking the 3 sheets out of the box and done!
Player boxes - Put each colored players pieces in these boxes (battle cards, miniatures, prayer point tracker, turn tracker, and action tokens). With the last extra box, put the Divine Intervention cards and all of the small extra silver/gold action tokens. If you can find ones that are slightly deeper you could even fit each of the 3 colored pyramids.
Victory Point holder - Holds all of the victory points in their own compartments.
Exactly that! If you're on Amazon you can see that a few of the reviews for them will say how they were specifically bought for the Kemet power tiles. They work great :)
If you want to set up a gear binder, you'll want some coin sleeves:
I went with these for my binders:
You'll also want 28mm coin capsules for the round tokens.
BCW sleeves are what I’m using (as of yesterday). Their 2x2 sleeves fit sleeves cards well. It’s actually not too hard to get 2 cards into 1 slot.
BCW Pro 20-Pocket Pages, Pocket... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B002KDNAU2?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
Pages and coin holders
These coin holders aren’t sticky like I’ve seen some others. You’re meant to staple them to hold it shut but just sliding it in the page keeps them secure enough for me, plus I think the staple would make it ugly.
I second this opinion. Most collectors I know use binders with these pages, and they put cardboard 2x2s in them. These are the most common sheets people use. I'm sure you could easily find them at any coin and supply shop in Germany.

I have this duo
Gamegenic Matte Mini-Square
BCW 20 pocket Pages
And the fit is pretty tight. Putting one item in a slot isn’t too bad. Maybe the slightest wave/bubble and definitely snug, but something that might fix itself with a little bit of weight and pressure to get the extra air out of the sleeves. But putting a second in the same slot definitely makes them concave slightly into a U shape. Putting three in a slot really isn’t possible.
I’m not sure what I was expecting, but I actually feel a little foolish sleeving all 400ish of the gear first and then trying to put them into the coin page. In hindsight, I wish I would have gotten the coin page first, and then only sleeved the gear I would use. It seems like the most you’d ever have “active” is just 9x4, so there’s really no need to sleeve all 400, 36 seems like all you need. Then each item set of 3 would have easily fit into each of the coin slots and you wouldn’t need 20 pages to fit everything in the binder.
I just use those for my gear grids and it's awesome.
I should probably mention that this isn't all THAT budget after all:
ikea cutlery tray: $16.99
ikea box: $9.99
17 ultrapro boxes: 17*$1.99 [support a local game store or someone who sells for $1.99, please don't buy them from amazon for $4.50!!!]
Sleeves: about $25 overall, ... note, the amazon prices fluctuate wildly day to day for some reason
SE (note: dont actually fit perfectly): https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003D06SGE/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
For the FA , WPs, etc, ..
2 ring binders from Target, $5.99 each.
a little bit of wood from michaels ~$5 + 90min time and some wood glue.
add the sleeves for the cards inside the boxes:
~20x $1.75 for the sleeves:
I get these off of Amazon.
FYI - you don't really NEED to sleeve settlements and gear cards(I felt that way too at the beginning). Settlements cards aren't out much and gear sleeves can be replaced by these:
With the above u can just use a old binder to keep all gear cards in order & cut a few pages to look like 3x3 grids for character inventory sheets.
I'm using these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002KDNAU2. I wouldn't turn the binder upside down and shake it, but it works fine as long as you're not too rough.
Storing ship bases and dials has always been the obnoxious bit for me. Here's what i'm using right now, which has been my favorite solution.
Small bases: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B002KDNAU2/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_taa_uLPxBbBD53674
Medium bases and dials: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00ZZ0GB6M/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_taa_MMPxBbC94A8A4
Large bases (this is the worst solution of the three, as the bases will slip out if turned upside down... but still the best I've found): https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DDTQFN6/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_taa_oNPxBbD7BBE94

the 2 x 2 is in fact a perfect fit.
Something like these. https://www.amazon.ca/20-Twenty-20-Pocket-Collecting-Supplies/dp/B002KDNAU2
Got them a buck each at a local coin store.

I used these for the standard cards
Purple Label: Standard USA Game Size Sleeves 56mmx87mm (4x100 Pack, 400 sleeves) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XZFCD4V/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_2.8aAb7M3Z13Y
I have my gear in a binder in these sleeves
And the settlement events i couldnt find anywhere that has that size so I used 2 bcw post card sleeves. Cut the long side of 1 down by like 2mm and the double sleeve inside another.
Mage company sleeves makes some specific for kdm but are back ordered.

I haven't used them myself, but someone linked to these. Looks like you have to cut them down to size but that should be easy.
The dials are assembled, I would take a picture but I am at work now. I bought these: BCW Pro 20-Pocket Pages, Pocket Size: 2" x2", 20 Pages - Coin Collecting Supplies https://www.amazon.com/dp/B002KDNAU2/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_JY2Hyb19HFYSA
I use these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002KDNAU2/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1
and these for large ships: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004QVH0RK/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
They aren't quite as tight as I would like but they don't fall out if I invert the binder. It works nicely for me.
I use coin collector pages... The cards do stick up from the top - It's not a perfect solution, but it works well enough.
