Caravan of SEE'ers Custom Playing Cards

$5,527

Three custom decks of playing cards inspired by antique fortune telling decks from the late 18oo's. This is the Caravan of SEE'ers.


The "cartomancer" gray deck is an beautifully designed ornate custom deck of playing cards that display silhouettes of figures for each of the pips in both the upright and reverse positions. Each figure is acting out the meanings of the cards. You would not know this deck is meant for fortune telling upon appearance.

The "intuition" red deck takes exactly that...intuition. You read the cards using your intuition. Features one word for both the upright and reverse positions on the cards to spur your intuition and is a helpful reminder of the meanings.

The "novice" blue deck has the full meanings right on the cards in the upright and reverse positions. No memorizing! You'll be able to tell fortunes right away.

These custom decks will be produced on a sturdy high quality black core playing card paper with a linen finish by the fantastic ladies at AdMagic Inc.

The information sheet has the full meanings for each card in the upright and reverse positions as well as brief numerology for the numbers 1-10, court card characteristics and basic information about each suit. One included with every deck. 

A poker size card is included with each set that slips neatly into your tuck box for storage. It has instructions for 2 different methods of fortune telling with dice and an entertaining game of fate.

Risks and challenges

Since I'm always creating, I make my work available thorough my website and do a lot of mail order business. I'm familiar with both international and domestic shipping so I'm no stranger to shipping packages.

There has been 2 previous attempts to get the Caravan decks produced through Kickstarter and we were unsuccessful in reaching our goal both times. Our initial goal was to print through The United States Playing Card Company. USPC has a high minimum order per deck design. All three of the Caravan decks are popular on their own but collectively it has been a challenge to reach the goals to meet the USPC minimum order requirements. This time we are taking USPC out of the equation and printing through an alternative source that produces high quality collector decks with no minimum order.

I've already received sample decks and they are lovely quality cards. The turn around time is quite quick on a regular day but since we are nearing in on the holidays there could be delays. With this in mind I've estimated the delivery to be in February but I am guessing they will be available a lot sooner. I will start shipping as soon as I receive them.

I don't see any problems getting these made and in your hands.
