There are a lot of sweet custom cards you all have created here. Is everyone printing and sleeving them?

Is there anyplace that will print up double sided cards that could be shuffled in?

I really love the idea I saw about creating hero cards for our family members, but I do not sleeve so that would be a big negative for me.

I made a huge batch of customs (I'll be tweaking these soon, using the responses in the forum) and I have another huge batch on the way with more schemes, heroes, villains, henchmen, and Masterminds.

I have printed them off at Cardstudio. When I found that I couldn't shuffle them normally because of VERY small differences in size (also the textures of the cards are slightly different, so you know they are next to be drawn) I splurged and bought black sleeves. It was pricey, but man they look and play amazing now. They are the upper deck ones.

Here's a link to my stuff:

I have stuff made up at Printerstudio.com, and you more or less cannot tell the difference between the custom cards and the real cards (custom is sometimes slightly darker on the backs, so I use a slightly lightened back image). The only problem is PS recently raised their prices by...well, a lot, so that sucks.

I also use penny sleeves, even though I found no difference in the texture of real cards vs. custom cards from PS.

What selections do you use for getting them printed up? Standard 2.5" x 3.5" poker cards look like the right size, (Legendary cards look to be about 1/6th of an inch smaller).

They are about $9 for a deck of 52 which does not seem bad. Although I have no idea what they used to be.

Couldn't find the Cardstudio website... the first thing that shows up is a zebra.com?

The cards are 63x88 mm. Printerstudio has that size as an option and I've printed some from there.

Ahh I see that... do you order the standard (cheapest) quality? Looks like they have a little sale on for the next two days.

I just got some cards printed by PrinterStudio.com for Legendary. I made this video to help out anyone who is considering taking the plunge:
