Cardistry by NoahW Cardistry by NoahW
Among other things I'm an amateur card magician, so naturally my love of art and magic are bound to overflow into each other.

I design and print some of my own gaff or "trick cards" as well as custom spades that I use in my decks. I've made some designs for decks as well but have yet to have any printed, though ideally I'd like to license the designs to a magician owned .com so they can mass produce them for sale and possibly shoot a few my way.

Wish me luck guys!

P.S. Pictured are a couple of simple cards from a Bicycle "Ghost deck" all images are copyright their respective owners.

Unfortunately I don't have any custom decks printed yet, but I make all my own gaff cards (Which is a huge pain o_O)

Hi !
Just in case, have a look at this service : [link]
I use it to build my game prototype. It's a little expensive if you are in Europe but a real time saver :)

Oh awesome, I was actually going to ask you where you got yours printed :XD: Are they a pretty good quality? And I checked around but can't find a minimum required order, is there one?

Well it's print-on-demand, so it's numeric (just provide rgb files in 300 dpi)
Be aware that between the front and back there might be a little offset, and the cutting is sometimes not very precise (1/8 inch)
Otherwise it's very good quality on strong paper. You can order "one copy" of your game, at base price if you are the author, and in case you want to make some money, sale it with public price.
Feel free to check the website and ask the team on the forums.
I personnaly use the service to build my prototype that I sell as collectors :)

awesome work! I wouldn't mind trying my hand at card designing. Always nice to find a product you enjoy that you can also design as well and hopefully make a little cash from as well.

Best of luck with it all, and if you start selling them, let us know because I'd be interesting in buying some :)

Thanks dude glad you like them! Hopefully all works out, either way I suppose I'll just have them made myself.

True :) There's always a way to get these things done. The beauty of being an artist is not only can we think creatively in the creation process, but a bit of creative thinking never hurts in the production and distribution process as well :)
