I'm totally obsessed with Sentinels and for some time I've been eyeing up buying the Cauldron. Unfortunately, printing seems to be US-only unless I do it myself. I took a look at the PDFs but I don't see how I could explain to a card shop how to assemble them (character cards double-sided, correct backs on cards, etc).

I was going to buy, but 60 + 20 + 20 is a hundred dollars already, and they want another $75 to post to the UK. Obsessed I may be, but I'm also on a budget.

Has anyone non-US got any suggestions on how I could get these decks please? I don't believe there's a European partner for Drive Thru Cards, but I'd love to be proved wrong.

Edit: I tried some of the decks on tabletop simulator, but that thing's so clunky...

There are other online services (CowCow, ArtsCow, printers studio) which do cards but DTC has them all together, up to date with eratta, and (the best part) the designer Matt gets a share of the proceeds.

How much did DTC quote you on weight?

They don't say the weight, but looking at pics of people who've received theirs (and knowing how many decks there are) it would be a fair amount. I'd say around 5kg.

The PDFs were never intended for printing (or anything really). Most custom card-printing sites will have forms you can upload images to, specifying what goes where. Use the individual image files for this.

If you wanted to take it in to a physical store, you'd probably first have to make your own sheets with cut lines and all the images properly laid out (is my guess).

Hey, thanks for the reply. I bit the bullet and ordered from DTC. Thanks for the excellent, thematic characters!
