    Wow, thanks for that site. I didn't even know it existed and am going to see if I can place an order to replace my hand cut cards.

    Yes bleed makes everything easier lol. And there is really no reason not to have add it in when making the cards from scratch anyway. I'm suprised more people don't include it in their cards but I suspect most people don't have that much digital media experience.

    I put 5mm bleed. That site only needs 36 pixles of bleed (on each side). Make sure you crop the images before you upload them for correct framing. It's only a few pixels of extra bleed space you need to crop out.

    I placed an order with them a few weeks ago. Patiently waiting lol

    Thanks for that tip! I'm contemplating front and back image or just front. Don't know if I'm going to stick the NFC tag on the back like I did with my printed and hand cut cards.

    What I did was ordered two sets of the same cards with their fronts and their backs. That way if I want to sandwich the tag I can. And if I think I just want it on the back I can do that.

    You make it sound easy with cropping images etc but not everyone is skilled at image programs, my skills only go till mspaint ;(

    Did you by any change save the project on makeplayingcards.com?

    Just google "batch cropping tool" it's pretty straightforward

    Quick question and sorry to bother you on this. Did you check the "these images, names, dates and information/copyrights/authorization are mine"? I mean, technically none of the images are ours even though they are custom cards.

    I believe I did. I made the cards images.

    Also assuming you aren't making a huge order I don't think They would care.

    Thanks! Order placed as two sets like you did. Looks like production and shipping takes 2 weeks total. Hoping to get them in sooner.

    Hey, just a heads up that my cards moved pretty fast from "payment" to "processing". Next day actually from when payment was put in. Don't know if being in good ole Canadia has anything to do with how fast they move on the cards but if you get yours in first, I'd like to see what they look like.

    Thank you so much for the zelda cards! Will you do any other other series? (besides ssb, they are all over the web) I can't find Mario, splatoon, or animal crossing anywhere. Also the one off amiibos too.

    I do not sell my cards. But yes they are using my work. I've reported them. That's about all I can do.

    So surprisingly, my cards came in today from the make playing cards website. I'll update with photos once I get home and complete them.

    @Random11 did you 'recreate' that paint background for botw or found it online?
