I love your Pocket of Peers Tarot cards, can I commission a card painting of myself and some family members as the ______?
At this time I do not have the time to take on such commissions nor do I have a pricing plan in place. Truth is each card takes anywhere from 4-10 hours to create, (and that’s only in drawing time alone, not including the back and forth messaging and concept development)- I fear the price alone would make you not really want one. Thank you again for enjoying my art and this specific project!

 

I love your bold colors, I have a deck idea in mind, can I hire you to be my artist?
First of all, thank you for asking I am truly flattered.  However, I am not an artist for hire.  So the short answer is No. I do love that you asked and enjoy my art enough to want it for your deck. There are so many amazing deck artists for hire, however I am not one of them.  

 

Can I get a Tile set made of my Favorite deck?
The short answer is No.  
We are only allowed to create decks with specific licensing from the Deck Creator or Publishing House.  If you have an Indie Deck creator in mind that you’d love to see us collaborate with, send us their name and we can open channels of discussion with them. However keep in mind that not all creators are willing to go down this collaborative effort.  (As an artist, I totally get being protective over their creative projects)

 

I am an Indie Deck Creator and I’d love to collaborate with you, can you add my deck to your tile catalog for sale? 
Maybe—  there are a few factors we consider before deciding to collaborate with fellow artists. How well the artwork translates to miniature form. (Some decks that are extremely detailed, may lose readability the smaller the images get.) There’s also the marketing factor, a lot goes into the setup and time to create the prototypes so we want to make sure that your tiles will do well and be well received. If you’re wanting a set just for yourself, that can be arranged, and brings us to the next question...

 

I am an Indie Deck Creator, can I get a one off set of tiles that features my deck?
Yes— as long as you are not under contract with a Publishing House, and retain all rights of reproduction to your artwork.  The pricing will vary depending on how many cards are in your deck as well as a design/layout fee.  We put a lot of work into creating the artwork for the box and tile backs so that they match your decks’ Aesthetic.  Please fill out the contact form to get the conversation rolling!

 

I have a miniature card deck that I’d love for you to turn into a set of Tiles, can I send them to you and also how much will it be?
Maybe — we treat this like a one off collaborative effort, in terms of taking your physical mini card deck and turning it into a set of tiles.  Pricing will depend on all the technical factors that are involved.  Layouts, Templates and designing the artwork for the tile backs and creating a matching puzzle box to fit your unique set. We already have specific sizing templates for the standard we create, this effort falls outside of those parameters. You also must be aware that resin forever transforms the cards, adding it to the surface can never be undone. If you are still interested please fill out the contact form to get the conversation started!

 

The deck I want is out of stock! Will you be reprinting your Sawyer’s Path Tarot and Sawyer’s Lenormand Decks?
Yes-  For these specific decks we get limited printings of 250 at a time as they are printed in the USA and it’s about all we can spend upfront to restock.  If they are out of stock then there is a print on demand version with the same artwork and similar card stock via Printer Studio.  It’s the compromise I have set in place to keep it available for those of you who are just discovering my decks when they are out of stock here! 
Estimated restock: 

  • Sawyer’s Lenormand:  Mid April 2021
  • Sawyer’s Path Tarot: Late spring/early summer 2021

 

What is an Indie Deck, and why do you keep using that terminology?
An Indie deck is a self-published deck that is not under contract with a large mass-market publishing house. These decks tend to be more expensive and come with attention to details that are not found in mass market decks.  Boxes tend to be more ornate, magnetic closures, two piece, matte finish with foil embossing.  The Card stock is generally of better quality, thicker with a wide array of finishes. Sometimes creators choose to edge them in colors or foil.  Indie deck creators work with the deck printers from the very beginning to the end for quality control.  So while the prices tend to be higher, you are usually getting a nicer product.  

 

What is a Mass-market deck or Publishing House and what do you keep referring to that terminology? 
Mass-market decks are produced by big name publishing houses (US Games Inc, Llewelyn, Hay House, Red Feather, Schaffer to name just a few).  They tend to be less expensive than indie decks due to the sheer quantities that they can order from printing companies. Publishing Houses are upping their print game as they’ve been seeing the popularity of indie decks and a desire for more unique packaging and better card stock. Many Indie Deck creators get picked up by publishing houses, and this is exciting. It also means that they are under contract and no longer control the quality of the deck being produced.  We love mass market decks just as much as Indie Decks, we like to collect them all!
