What this is:

  • Each card design has a $10 card setup fee. You can order 30 (for example) cards with a front design and a different back design and its only a single $10 fee.
  • If you want the same design on poker and bridge size the artwork setup fee would apply to each and be $20 fee total.
  • Shipping from the manufacturer to me is baked into the $.98/card price. But reshipping is not included. Standard USPS domestic and international.

We are skipping the "collecting interest" phase for this round and are going right to orders, but I am leaving the order window open for an extended period. This is in part due to my traveling away from home in June/July. Delivery for the cards should be around mid-August.

I also want to thank @JesterTX and @mattross1313 for stepping up to potentially take over these GBs. Fortunately it looks like I will have capacity to continue these for the time being after all. Thanks again to you both.

Oh, and in case if anyone is curious I will run more hand ranking cards and make those available as loose pairs for the community at large. Seems like those were a hit.

Anyone have artwork for Starlite or PNY cut cards they’d be willing to share. Happy to pay a small fee for the use.

All over this. Designs ready for 3 cards, poker and bridge! Let's goooo :cool

Edit - if anyone needs help with creating files drop me a PM. I'm not a wizard but know my way around Illustrator.
Do you want me to add your name to the top post with the other designers? I had also just removed p5 since he is out now.

I'll be submitting an order: 2 designs, poker and bridge sized for each design. Probably 100 cards total.

Artwork should be ready in a week or so.

Order Submission:

Send an email to CasaMangoPoker@gmail.com with the following details:
  • PCF username
  • Delivery address where cards will be shipped (will allow me to give shipping cost when payment is due)
  • Include order details:
    • name of cards project{s)
    • quantity per card design (30 minimum)

    • attach artwork files (AI or print ready PDF)
    • file naming: PROJECT NAME_bridge.ai or PROJECT NAME_front_bridge.ai + PROJECT NAME_back_bridge.ai if sides are different

I'm slightly confused by the OP. Is there no minimum quantity for an order, or is there an minimum order quantity of 30 cards per design?

No minimums. That was a change with the last GB. I just changed the OP. Sorry for the confusion.
