We gamers are a creative bunch. After a game, we often ask "What if?" or say "Imagine if..."

Well, what If you could print out a deck of cards on your laser printer to enhance an existing boardgame? Imagine if you could prototype your own card game in minutes right from your laser printer? Or create a card gag gift? Or theme cards for parties? Or inexpensive and expendable reward cards? Or create cards for bachelor or bachelorette parties in the privacy of your own home?

And these are only a few of the "Imagine ifs..." that came from your feedback and our brainstorming. With our CardMogrifier Poker Size Blank Card sheets and custom computer templates, what you can imagine in a card, you can then create and print out on your own laser printer.

When we started 4d10, we wanted to bring gamers the ability to make cool stuff right in their own home. Our first project -- "The Cardmogrifier" -- did that, allowing you to 'remake' a single playing card through a standard home laser printer. Thank you to all that helped fund that KickStarter.

Yet, so many liked the idea, they wanted to make their own custom deck -- but not at one card at a time. We went back to the same printer and die cutting companies that manufactured the original Cardmogrifier. After some experimentation, they helped us create the CardMogrifier Poker Size Blank Card sheet -- six die-cut cards per sheet.

We created the custom Pegasus back pre-printed on the cards in either red or blue. We even offer completely blank card sheets so you can print both sides with exactly what you want on the cards!

Your choice of Generic Red, Blue or even Blank backs
Your choice of Generic Red, Blue or even Blank backs

Each card has nice curved corners and smooth sides you expect in a card. Tiny 1/32" tabs hold the card in place so that the sheet travels safely through you Laser Printer. Once printed you can pop them out by hand, or if you're a bit of a perfectionist (as many Gamers are!) we'll show you a couple of alternate methods of removing the cards, eliminating any negligible tab remains.

We also created downloadable Adobe Indesign, Illustrator, Photoshop and Card Maker templates that allow you to place your designs on the six faces. Currently our coder is also working on an online version -- a variant of the existing CardMogrifier online template on our website -- so you can print on the go.

NOTE: The Blank Card sheets are a slightly thinner index stock than your typical playing cards. We went as thick as typical home Laser Printer would allow, but not further!

And that's it: do-it-yourself cards for the creative gamer. Load your design, print, punch 'em out, and play!

Thank you for your support of our KickStarter!

 

 So you want more than just our standard Pegasus back? Well, here you go -- a Science Fiction card back. This is a rough pencil sketch now,  but when we hit 1.5k, we'll provide the image to you to get it inked in any ready for you to print on your card backs!

 So maybe it's a Horror game you want to make. That was our second choice after getting some preliminary thoughts on giving you additional options, and who doesn't like a creepy old haunted house?

More Stretch Goals To Come!

Risks and challenges

We've done the research, manufactured prototypes, and went through trial and error to assure that the pre-diecut sheets would travel safely through our laser printers. Of course we can't test them on every laser printer out there on the planet. Simply said we're confident it will work just fine in your printer.

Our downloadable templates are already tested and available at 4d10.com

We're using the same professional printing and die-cutting companies that produced the testing prototypes

With both our first two successful Kickstarters in 2017 we began shipping out the rewards 21 days after we received the funding from Kickstarter! Printing, diecutting, and shipping in less than a month! WHO DOES THAT? We do, because to us this isn't just a business, it's a commitment to our fellow gamers!

Are you ready to create even more custom cards? Then back us today. Thank you.
