Hi!

Some time ago I've made a design kit for Adobe Photoshop which helps with game cards design. It's prepared for printing, but can be used also on digital media.

Here are my concepts done with this design kit (they're also included in the file itself as examples):



You can check the details and buy it here.

I hope it'll be useful for someone

Edit: Added explicit purchase information, thanks for pointing this out.

I was under the impression that advertisements for off-site purchases were discouraged.

That seems to pertain more to selling access to BGG or to BGG-related services. You can't sell things that are freely available here, for example, but you can offer services/product. The only questionable bit is using BGG for advertising, but then, just look around at all the kickstarter campaigns (laser-cutter products thread in DIY being one).

I went to this link and it said something about PhotoShop, do I have to have Photoshop to use this software? Or does this just include things from Photshop?

Would it be possible to post a screencast of you designing a couple cards with this? I'm intrigued, but I'm having a hard time picturing how it would actually work.

A screen cast demo / tutorial would be useful, especially if one were looking to use this to make a game to sell, as that license costs $300.
