Custom Card Game Proofing

Once you’ve finalized the artistic design, instructions, and structure of your game, it’s time to move on to custom card game proofing. This is typically the final stage before your production of 500 units is sent to you. A proof is a copy of your game that we send you so you can make sure everything looks just right. During the proofing stage, you can’t make any alterations to the structure of your game–you’re just double checking that the visuals you wanted transferred from digital to physical format. If something does happen to be wrong, such as the colors are not what you expected or a page gets misprinted, this is where you tell us. It is important that the proof checks out before we use our resources and your money. 

We offer free electronic proofing as well as physical proofing for a set price. If you’re concerned about the way your colors will turn out, we strongly recommend ordering a physical proof. That way, we can make any changes to the color that you see fit. A physical proof will typically take around 3 weeks to ship to you, whereas a digital proof will only take a week.
