Ok, so I want to share this little pet peeve of mine and see if anyone else has had similar experiences with recent Tarot purchases.
I have noticed in the past couple of years or so that certain decks I have purchased have been printed on such flimsy card stock. I actually wrote to the publisher of one of these decks and never received a response. Keep in mind this is one of the 2 major players out there for Tarot cards.
I really find it discouraging to fall in love with a deck online or in the catalog only to order it and find the craftsmanship is sub-par. It seems to be more and more of a problem these days.
There was one exception. I purchased a new copy of the Golden Tarot deck a few months ago to replace my other one that had worn quite a bit. This time I was pleasantly surprised to see they had increased the quality of the card stock and the lamination was done very well also. This deck was sturdier than my past copy.
yay for sturdy! I do a lot of readings and I like for my cards to hold up well!
Has anyone else noticed this trend? What can we do to encourage larger publishers to not sacrifice the quality of the decks they produce?
