Nevertheless with Avery I didn't find a lot of colors, therefore I ordered some black markers.
Sharpie markers (I guess you use Sharpie) offers probably more choice!

In any case, Dark grey looks a good choice, probably better than black!
Yes, I used a Sharpie and I had to go over the cards many times to reduce the shade difference with the grey. It looks good though. It would definitely suit Tinker's Damn, this is the closest deck I have to the TD deck style wise.

Cool Dark Carnival Tarot - Edged in Black


This is a very cool deck! Looks much better IMO with the edges black.

What do you think?

It's a Sharpie permanent marker, a fine point one out of a multi colour pack.

Thoth - trimmed with border colors


I colored the borders of my small Thoth and then trimmed.
(The majors in black are my favorite, but I used a different border color for each suit, because that works well for me when reading. Swords were left grey)

Used Kodamaru Pro corner cutter, Staedtler Lumocolor permanent marker 4 pack, old paper trimmer.

Wow! Looks great even though I'm not usually a fan of different colored borders.

Sweeney Tarot Poker Size to Pocket Size


Got the Sweeney Tarot in Poker Size and it had these ugly side borders in different colors, so I had to cut them off and corner the deck. It is now about USG Pocket Size.

Question Sweeney Tarot - Edge Color?


I'm wondering if I should edge it now? Any color thoughts if I do?

Yellow seems obvious, but I don't have one that matches. I have a pale blue though.

Suggestions?

Black would be fine; or also bronze?
