Yes I have pictures but there seems to be a problem when I upload them but you can go to my Instagram or Twitter and see a photo I posted there and you can ask me for shots of any card of the deck and I can DM it to you. @rousselle

Yes of course if eoghann contact me I can send him some photos of court cards and jokers so everybody can see them.
Because I don't know what it's happening when I try to upload.

Ffffffffine. :)

I think your problem is a newbie thing. Maybe after a certain amount of posts you're allowed to upload. Maybe Mike or Joe can confirm?

@CContreras - I would let the "Joker" read

That way it's in the indices. "Playing Card Indices" look it up.

Basically, most ppl read the card top to bottom not left to right.

Well, I'm pretty sure that most people (in the western part of the world) reads text from left to right before reading top to bottom. But it's still a good suggestion because it'll make the card more readable when squeezed together with other cards.

What I wanted to do was that when you fan the deck you don't see the word "joker" and it looks like an other card.

I honestly cant say i like the deck, while the back design has potential, your court cards kills the entire deck. The thick lines in the rest of the deck just doesnt go with the thin sketchy style of the courts.

Your courts remind me of the recent choice deck, and thats not a complement.

That back looks so familiar........ ;) The nice looks nice. The courts don't have to be colored but they can be outlined/highlighted more so they can be more visible. The red pips look dark so they can be more distinguished.
