Over the last years, there has been a trend from magic companies and the interest of the consumer market. There has been a huge influx of custom playing cards into the market. At an increased cost then regular cards and the ability to make cards limited edition and raise the price exponentially. I personally believe that the companies have developed a way to print money. By charging almost any price for cards. Now I have seen some beautiful cards and have used cards that are custom and love the feel of them. But it makes you think. When does it become more about people racing to create a new design and make a limited deck only to raise the price later? When are there so many types of cards out there that it doesn’t matter anymore.
Personally I’m torn on this topic. I love all the cards and enjoy using and collecting cards. At the same time I truly despise the cards that are made “limited” and after a certain amount there are no more but magically a few months later there’s a “Hidden” batch that’s found and now cost 3 times as much. When ever I hear this marketing push I almost immediately lose interest int he deck. I would love to hear all of your thoughts on this. Please respond and share this post. I’d like to get a discussion started on this.
Thank all of you for your support. We have some great new things in the works.
