Wheel Of Fortune Tarot Card Deck

 Hi, everyone, my name is Ivy.

The Wheel Of Fortune Tarot Deck is my first original deck using the latest printing techniques which are currently not widespread. 

These include:

  •  Brass Gold, Blue Gold and Black Gold foil for the cards and box among many others you have never dreamed of
  •  Water Proof Plastic Cards for the mini deck for durability and a matte-texture for a more premium feel
  •  Skin-Like Texture Paper for the box which is totally matte and perfectly highlights the brass gold foil

Many people are not aware of the vast array of possibilities of printing methods when it comes to tarot decks printing

These include:

  • different color options for the gold foil printing
  • different box material options
  • different card stock options

To know more about the different printing skills, please visit our website, Facebook and our Alibaba Shop under the company name of  

Shenzhen XM Playing Cards Co., Ltd.  &   

Shenzhen The Wheel Of Fortune Spiritual Art Creation Co., Ltd. 

  • Facebook: @woftarot
  • https://wheeloffortunetarot.en.alibaba.com
  • https://xmplayingcards.en.alibaba.com 

So here we will make our decks with new printing skills from the foil colors with :

 Standard Deck:

1.)  Cards Size: 70x120mm,  78 cards per deck

We are confident you will love your Wheel Of Fortune Tarot Deck because of our passion for creativity and quality.

The Wheel Of Fortune Tarot deck has incorporated the hearts and minds of many tarot card designers and authors I have met over my long career as a tarot card printer and printing manufacturer. 

They have been various people, such as doctors, housewives, card readers and film makers who have so many special feelings, unique understanding, passion and love for tarot art. 

We have created a strong business relationship and also a close friendship with each other, combining our creative ideas to produce custom tarot deck orders. The biggest highlight of my job is when a customer receives their custom tarot deck and is completely satisfied by every little detail.

The Wheel Of Fortune Tarot deck comes from my dream journey of making my own tarot deck. I have been very passionate about this idea for a long time and I have always dreamed of how it would look. This deck has been inspired by the traditional Rider-Waite tarot deck and consists of 78 beautiful hand drawn oil paintings for the cards. This is the culmination of an emotional journey for me.

I need to express my appreciation and gratitude to our artist Miss Ganianrong for her beautiful oil paintings which express our ideas of optimism, confidence, courage and love. She worked diligently for 8 long months from March to October 2018 to hand paint all 78 images. The design is ready and we are prepared for the printing.

The deck is also influenced by my reading of the book"Personal Renewal", by John William Gardner, Which I also quoted as part of the printing for both of the box designs.  

May I share the quote with you from the book: 

The Meaning Of Life 

Meaning is not something you stumble across, like the answer to a riddle or the prize in a treasure hunt. Meaning is something you build into your life. You build it out of your own past, out of your affections and loyalties, out of the experience of humankind as it is passed on to you, out of your own talent and understanding, out of the things you believe in, out of the things and people you love, out of the values for which you are willing to sacrifice something. The ingredients are there. You are the only one who can put them together into that unique pattern that will be your life. Let it be a life that has dignity and meaning for you. If it does, then the particular balance of success or failure is of less account.

-"Personal Renewal", by John William Gardner

I know nothing great is accomplished alone, so that’s why I continue to need and greatly appreciate your support in order to bring this project to life.

At this point, I wish to take this opportunity to thank all of my friends and customers along my career and share my experience and encouragement to those who want to create their own custom tarot cards and run a business by infusing my ideas into The Wheel of Fortune Tarot Deck.

Thank you so much for your support!

Jan 19 2019 Updates

THE INCREDIBLE FREE STRETCH GOAL.

We've come very far together in so little time in my first ever Kickstarter Tarot card project with a success. But I couldn't have done it without the support of each one of you. To show my sincere appreciation for your supports, I've decided to upgrade the "STANDARD DECK" with 2 advance printing options:

  • A - Cards with Brass gold foil edges.
  • B - Cards with Holographic black foil edges.

Both Brass gold & Holographic black edges version look stunning,  If you like both of them, please pledge for both version.  I will be much appreciated your great support!

This new printing technology is only possible on paper printings and not applicable to plastics. So these options will not affect or be applicable to the "Mini Deck".

I will send out a survey immediate after the end of my campaign to all my backers to choose which option they prefer. This is my way of saying thanks to you all!As manufacturer, my goal also is to expose each one of you  to the latest and newest cards printing technology for your card games and Kickstarter projects. I assure all of you that I can provide these great printing services as evident in my Tarot card project. 

Once again, thanks for your supports.

Sincerely,

Ivy Feng.
