OK, lots of printing done. End result very positive — it was like an early christmas.

Printed 200 cards at a print shop and another 60 or so at home. Colours from the print shop were vibrant, however the DPI not so great (suspect they had a setup issue). Colours at home we're a little flatter; but resolution / DPI was great. So it was a good spread for comparisons.

Overall they held up very well. I made a few minor tweaks to saturation / hue but asides from that everything was good. I currently have a temporary phone which is crap — will try an get some photos / comparisons up soon.

You want to be consistent in library and crypt cards. That is fine. But your white box isn't very suitable for library cards as it isn't clear which box is what type (combat/reaction/action/etc ...), so it isn't very good idea in crypt too.

I can't see the logic there, since crypt text box will always contain the same type of content. Comparing it to library text box which can accomodate action, combat etc. doesn't make sense.


I think Ke. want the boxes in one color to make it look consistent, So changing one without changing the other might be no-go for him.

I suggest what self-biased did before - make the white part transparent (but unlike self-biased version, nearly white - similar to Ke. black box which also is not total black but near black thanks to alpha channel).

So, did you find a camera?

No; instead of faffing around with my shitty tmp phone (it's a windows phone!) — I built a deck building tool with PDF generation built into it. It's mostly done; hopefully will release it shortly.

Here's a link to a random deck I imported from SecretLibrary:

Here are some photos from the shitty phone:





The card text now use the latest card text from you and Floppy.

looks great!

my only criticism is that i would very strongly prefer having votes in the black box. it would make it way less awkward and shitty to just see
Independent (Titled): in the text box, and votes in the black box than the way it currently displays.

Wow, the redesigned cards look great! The color of the purple strip is so much better than the ugly green. And more room for the text!
