Tarot Deck Boxes!

Now, I can order custom printed boxes from the same place where I got the decks printed, but they don't account for the fact that I am sleeving my decks.  (Of COURSE I'm sleeving them.  I worked way too hard on these to not protect them.) And I desperately needed boxes.  I was unable to find a good source to get them professionally printed because companies that print custom boxes are usually doing it for commercial purposes, where they expect you to be a business owner who's ordering hundreds of these at a time.  Where I needed only one of each, that was not really practical.  At best I would pay around $180 for them.  That's a little more than I wanted to spend for four boxes.  So in the end, I made up my designs, and had them printed on cardstock at Office Depot, then cut and glued them together myself.  I gave them a coat of clear spray paint to protect them too.  I think it turned out pretty good.  I just used the card backs for the design and then added the series logo edited to match the rest on the side.  Here they are:















And look! I made one for my Shadowscapes deck too!  I just scanned in the back of the card.  The logo was harder though, because there is no clean PNG of the logo anywhere on the internet, so I had to make my own.  Spent quite a bit of time cleaning out the background and then adjusting the color to match.

  1. Shut up and take my money!

    No but honestly, how do I go about getting one of the Final Fantasy tarot decks? Are you selling them or ordering them on demand or something? I MUST KNOW!

  2. Haha, thank you! Well, you can do what I did. I do actually have this printed. I went to this site: http://www.printerstudio.com/personalized/custom-imprint-tarot-size-cards-blank-cards.html I then uploaded the images and sent it off. It costs about $15 plus shipping unless you catch a sale or something. If you're serious I may even have a 10 or 15% off coupon code lying around, because the code never changes. That's the site I used to print all my nerdy decks. Do you want me to send you the full size images?

    1. Yes please! Also I happened to have gotten my first tarot deck since reading this post, and guess what? It was the Shadowscapes deck! If you would please send me the full size Final Fantasy as well as Zelda, I'd be your best friend forever.

      I'm not sure if my Blogger profile has my email on it, but if not, please send to jessecoltonwilliford@gmail.com
