If anyone knows of a card printer in Australia, I would love to hear about it. My first tarot deck is almost ready. It's taken almost a year so far, but the cards are done and I just need to find the best way to get them printed and out there. I will be putting them up on the Game Crafter for US buyers, but for Aussie buyers (and probably other non-US buyers) I am trying to find a cheaper option. The main problem here in Australia is the horrendous exchange rate which means my cost alone, before any profit is over $50 AU per deck from TGC, and bulk rates don't come down enough until you're printing a huge number. I think I can get the cards printed cheaper with someone like make playing cards and get the box and booklet printed locally to bring it down to about $30 AU before profit but I'm still working on that option. Then I would have to put them together myself and find a way to sell them!

Hey I'm new to this forum and decks as well. I just made an oracle deck of my own and used a small local printer in Seattle called GirliePress. They did a wonderful job and I got to work with them in person, checking proofs and making sure materials were what I wanted. Plus no shipping since I could just pick them up. Small run of 250. I love the idea of supporting my community this way even though they could have been made cheaper in China ect... Thats just my take on this topic. 

 

Cheers,

Moksha
