The Game Crafter now makes linen cards and components!

The Game Crafter - Linen cards, boxes, and boards are now available!

The Game Crafter is pleased to announce that LINEN is here! For the past year, linen cards have been the number one idea in the ideas system. We’re pleased to announce that we now have linen finished cards. But why stop at cards?

When you enable linen finish on your game, everything from your cards to your box to your game board will get our professional linen finish! And you can do it with or without UV coating, but UV coating really makes it pop. Just go to “edit details” in your game and you can enable linen finish for $0.25 per sheet.

New game designer success story!

This is a great success story about an indie game designer named Alex Cobian. He took his game, Booty, to Gen Con in 2013 and it was picked up and eventually published by Mayfair games. We were happy to hear that he uses The Game Crafter to produce all of his prototypes. :)

We’re going to try and setup a designer interview with Alex so we can learn more about him and his journey. We’d like to offer a big congratulations to Alex on getting his game published and for being featured in this article. Great job!
