Card Sleeves

So, we have a new game concept that we're working on. It allows the players to use multiple cards at a time in a secretive way. We have received feedback in the Alpha phase that it is too easy to see the number of cards a player is utilizing because the sleeves we are using are open at the top, and the sleeves show a noticeable difference in the thickness.

We are trying to come up with ways that we can "hide" the number of cards each player is utilizing. If it helps any, the cards represent people being buried with unique effects, so the number of cards in each sleeve will vary depending on a player's strategy.

We are trying to keep the cost down (no surprises there!), and the decks will still need to be stiff enough to shuffle. Any suggestions?

Look to Sheriff of Nottingham for a good way to do secret card use.
Not sure how much it would cost to do similar but it works very well.

Need more information about the game to make suggestions really.

But from what you've posted, I don't think that it will work well with sleeves.

Consider substitutes: bags/envelopes/screens/different mechanisms.

Thanks for the suggestions. I plan on looking for options over the weekend. Bags may work. Already utilizing screens as part of the game play.
