While I was never the biggest fan of Lisa Frank products growing up (I was more of a Mead Supershades girl, myself, later graduating to Yikes!® everything), I am a fan of the parody accounts Nihilisa Frank, and Feminist Lisa Frank floating around the interwebs these days, plus there's something about the mishmash of candy-colored nonsense on a deck of tarot cards, and the humor Ariel brings to the project that I find irresistible. So, it really was only a matter of finding the right print shop to handle the job! I ended up using San Francisco based Printer's Studio for this undertaking. I loved that they had no minimum orders, complete customization, essentially no limit to the number of designs in a deck (up to 170 cards), and their drag & drop uploading system that literally could not get any easier to use. The entire process was beyond user-friendly, and when I signed up to create my account I received a coupon code for something like ten dollars off my first order, taking the price down to $1.20 for two decks of cards, plus shipping.
I'm totally impressed with the quality, I can't say enough about how great these cards are, but I'll spare you! I'll just say, I'm so stoked I want to go into the playing card biz now ... stay tuned.
I know others went with Make Playing Cards as their printer, and were just as thrilled with the results. As pleased as I am with what I got from Printer's Studio, I always encourage people to shop around to find exactly who or what can fulfill their needs so, I had to throw MPC into the mix. I understand how overwhelming it can be trying to find the right company for the appropriate job, and I highly recommend both of these studios.
