Playing Card Templates

A set of templates and guides for creating a custom deck of playing cards

These templates can be used to create your own custom playing cards from scratch, or by modifying the cards that are included. Cards created with these templates may be printed for your own use or as part of a commercially produced deck.

Includes the templates and guides needed to create playing card faces and backs, as well as a full set of example card face designs (and 3 example back designs) that can be used as is, or modified as needed.

The .pdf file (with instructions and info) is available for immediate download from the site, but because .psd, .pdn, and .zip files can't be uploaded to The Game Crafter, full download instructions (for a .zip file containing all of the files, including all of the individual .png files) will be available after purchase.

NOTE: These templates and guides were designed specifically for Photoshop (.psd) and Paint.NET (.pdn), but have also been exported as .png files that can be used in other image software.

Templates and Guides are licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike Licence.
