How to Create Your Own Playing Cards

We live in an information-developed age, and all kinds of playing cards are in pursuit of luxury and wonder. With the help of crowdfunding platforms like Kickstarter, and Indigogo, the market is flooded with a host of wonderful new designs on a regular basis.. We can become patrons of the art, and play a small role in collaborating with designers by supporting them in making their projects become a reality.

But how do you go about creating your own deck of playing cards, what are some key elements of this process, and what are some of the things you need to know? In this article, we’ll help you by giving you an overview of everything involved, and share some of the key things to consider. There are three main steps to be thinking about, which we’ll go through one at a time:

Your design of the theme

What will the theme and central idea in your deck be? It’s worth doing some research to see what is already out there. Has the concept, or subject matter of your deck been done before? Has the name you have in mind for your deck already been used by an existing project? There’s nothing worse than pouring an enormous amount of time or energy into a project, only to discover that someone else has beat you to the punch, or that a very similar product or design already exists. Is your theme just of personal interest, or is it something that you’re going to have to bring to the masses? If so, you want to try to find out if it’s something that will interest enough people to make your creative efforts worthwhile.
