Thanks, Deaux and McFaire!

Now here's something I'm thinking about. I've been using 310 GSM linen card stock for all my decks. I've looked around and found another option (with a different but equally-qualified printer) that would allow me to offer a heavier 330 gsm SMOOTH card stock -- but it would add $5 to the price. How do y'all feel about that option?

I have to say I love my linen, but as an optional extra, sure, why not

Freder l want to order the ROADSHOW tarot at some point would your MIDWAY be issued in the same size. The Midway is a brilliant idea you are so inventive and creative and it would be a wonderful addition.

Yes, it will come in two versions: the gigantic BARABOO Edition that includes all Major, Minor and Midway cards, and as a standalone Midway so that owners of the Roadshow can turn their decks into Baraboos if they like.

Just a notice: I've disliked selling through Etsy right from the start, and I have decided to wind that whole thing right down. When my current Etsy listings expire, that will be the end of that.

In addition, I'm adding a $5 surcharge to all my decks still listed there. The reason for all this is simple:

ETSY IS A PAIN IN THE ASS.

Don't want to pay extra? Easy! Order direct through my website!

Edited. This post was a rant. Making and distributing Tarot Decks can be a frustrating business at times, and at times I succumb to the frustration.

OK, so I was in an angry mood from having to deal with Etsy nonsense -- but I have calmed down, backed down from my position in that last post; everything is restored to normal in the universe -- including the fact that Etsy is still a pain in the ass -- but one I will live with a while longer.

Meanwhile, I have a new product. It doesn't fit anywhere else on these forums, so I'll just stick it here, in the midst of my rants and other blathering:

NEW “Salon Art Cards” feature some of my most popular tarot card designs on jumbo-sized (3.5" x 5.75") cards with manifold applications. They are regulation USPS postcard-sized, yet they*still fit into a regular business-sized mailing envelope,*so you can send them either way. *Use them as Post Cards, Invitations, Note Cards — or as the most impressive calling cards any of your contacts has ever seen. Post Card Backs are available singly or by the box. See them here: http://mysterydecks.tarotbyducksoup....art-cards.html
… and be sure to visit the main site, www.tarotbyducksoup.com.
