I will have to out together some instructions for making the boxes I
use for abnormal decks. It involves a mac 'n cheeze box, a muffin
powder box, some duct tape, and a little creativity.

I use the plastic boxes (there's a specific word for the type of
plastic they are, but I can't remember it at the moment) which gaming
stores sell for Magic: The Gathering players. They're large enough
for 1 Fluxx+1Blanxx, plus about 10 Fluxx stickers, a small number of
mini-catalogs, and my printed Mad Lab Rabbit cards. I stuck a Fluxx
sticker on the outside so I'd know which box was for Fluxx. The
plastic boxes are not large enough for a Chrononauts deck+promo cards/
identity booster. Neither is the Chrononauts tuck box. Right now, my
deck is in a rubber-band, but I dislike that storage method. The
plastic box is about $10, but lasts longer than a cardboard tuck box
and is very nice-looking.

When I do a spontaneous demo at a coffee shop, the whole presentation
looks very slick, as I can interrupt a game, explain what it is,
invite them to play, and ensure they take a mini-catalog and, if
there's a child, a sticker, with them. I hand out the Mad Lab Rabbit
cards if I teach them, but the MLR cards lack some information, like
my email address if they want to follow up with a question, and any
value-add for the person receiving them. So mainly I use them in more
formal demos, where I don't have to explain why I want them to know
who I am.

Also, a side note: If you want a blank deck of cards, LLabs used to
sell blank decks of cards for designing any card game. I haven't seen
them on the site recently, but I've seen blank decks of generic cards
elsewhere which can be handy for custom games.
