      I'm contacting Stardock to see what they say.

      Howdy, all.

      I've noticed no one else has been asking about putting this on GameCrafters

      I have a GameCrafter account and if no one else minds I'll probably work on it this weekend to see if I can get proper looking card backs and fronts from the PDF, and then I'll order it to see how it comes out. If Stardock wouldn't mind, I would be willing to "publish" it there and sell it at cost so that people can buy it without having to go through the work.

      Has Stardock commented on any of this so far?

      John J Maver - thanks for the tip! Wish I had Photoshop. :( I used Snag-It and by hand was able to slice the individual cards nicely. I attempted the upload at both artscow and printer's studio and realized the problem. Snag-it has a setting to increase the DPI, which I tried and didn't work. I was able to magnify the PDF image to 200% and then copy an individual card and load that. In artscow it worked, but I still have the issue with the numbers and icons being to close to the edge. Unfortunately, there's no tools in snag it to rectify that. Any chance you'd be willing to zip up and email me your finished files? Respond here and if so, I'll post my email address, thanks!

      Thanks again. I'm excited to play this with my friends. And count me in as someone that would be a nice deck from DriveThru or GameCrafter!

      I've actually put Stardock in contact with DriveThruCards. I hope it works out. If not, I know a couple other publishers that might be interested.

      Dave, I managed to do a set. I did the following:
      1) import PDF into Photoshop, selecting 1 back and all the fronts
      2) get all the pages as layers in the same doc
      3) set up guides to slice the cards. I used the black lines at the corners and in added more between cards
      4) created slices using guides
      5) saved to web using slices for each layer
      6) recorded an action that resized each image to 750x1050 without contstrain aspect to fix any slightly offs in slice. Then action increased canvas to 822x1122 and then filled new space with a nice brown I pulled off the card
      7) used batch image processor to load the folder of images, run my action, and save as quality 10 jpg.
      8) manually do the back card
      9) Upload,etc. looked great in preview!
      Hope they rock in person

      I hope they do go the DriveThruCards or GameCrafter.com approach. I appreciate the PDF download, but I am still willing to pay for a better quality version. I was looking into getting a set printed via artscow.com or printer's studio. I'm having a tough time getting hi-res (300 DPI) images of each card from the PDF. Also, even if I went with low res cards, there's not enough buffer room around the edge of the cards for bleed.

      Hi, have you heard of DriveThruCards.com? You can upload a card game for free, and people can buy them there—it's better quality than home-made print-and-play, and would be a great way for people to have access to a nicer version.
