The Game Crafter Makes 15 Different Types of Custom Playing Cards

The Game Crafter - Make 15 Different Types of Custom Playing Cards at The Game Crafter

The Game Crafter can make 15 different types of custom playing cards. All cards are die-cut, have rounded corners, and are printed in full color on both sides. All cards are printed on 12" x 18" sheets of 305gsm black-core card stock (as is used in popular trading card games like Magic: The Gathering), and this gives them a nice texture and good heft. Decks of cards can be any size and they are printed at our facility in Madison, Wisconsin.

Happy with TGC so far, but I

Happy with TGC so far, but I think slightly thicker card stock would be nice. I got a proto using 305 and it feels just a touch too thin, a little too cheap. Pretty happy with the box and components, though. And the price is good for print on demand.

Just curious - I have some

Just curious - I have some oddly sized character sheets for my game - roughly 5.5” x 8” (exact measurements are 140mm x 200mm). That isn’t something you guys could custom print on 12x18 sheets is it? It’s something I need for my game, so I would have to go to another company if you guys couldn’t do it, but you guys have all the other components I need.

Let me know, thanks!!

Thanks for the feedback and

Thanks for the feedback and for your business!

Just so you are aware, we use the same Playper card stock from the exact same manufacturer that Magic the Gathering and other industry games are produced on. We understand people have their personal preferences and perceptions of card thickness, but this is very much a standard in the industry. Most customers tend to prefer to use our card stock along with the UV coating that's optional. It does improve durability and finish for shuffling but not sure it would make you feel any different if you prefer thicker gsm card stocks.

We are glad to hear you think our pricing is good for print on demand. :)

We have a couple options that

We have a couple options that could work I think:

Option 1: Check out our Score pads if you want thinner paper and the character sheets get tossed pretty often. They are made of thinner paper and are great for games where players are generating lots of characters. If you're just going to have x amount of static characters that just get rotated around each play session then this obviously wouldn't be a good fit. https://www.thegamecrafter.com/publish/products#scorepads

Option 2: We allow you to make custom card stock components now. This can be custom shapes/sizes, like making paper miniatures, or just making printed card stock components in whatever size you want. For the size you are talking about, you'll want to either see our "Custom Medium Cardstock" at https://www.thegamecrafter.com/publish/product/CustomMediumCardstock or our "Custom Large Cardstock" at https://www.thegamecrafter.com/publish/product/CustomLargeCardstock. The medium may be a bit small for what you need but the Large will be more than big enough and you can have us cut it down into the 8" x 5.5" size you need.

Option 3: We have a wide range of preconfigured game mats that are made of the same card stock as our cards. You can browse them all at https://www.thegamecrafter.com/publish/products#mats. There is a 5" x 10" Half Mat or a 4" x 8" Domino Mat that you might consider.

We've got a lot of different ways to get you what you want. Just browse through them all and see what will work best for you. I also highly recommend that you jump into our "General Chat" channel in the bottom right corner of The Game Crafter website. There are lots of other designers in the community in there and they'll be happy to talk to you about the best way to get what you want. Be sure you are logged in before you join the chat so you can participate.

Happy designing!
