What type of instructions are right for my card game?
Our rule booklets are perfect for card games with rules that need to be continually referenced throughout gameplay. They’re sturdy so your customers can open them again and again. They’re also a great option for games that have multiple pages of rules.
Our accordion style is also an excellent option for card games with several pages of rules. However, they aren’t bound in any way, which makes them a less expensive choice. They also can lie completely flat, meaning they won’t take up as much space in your tuck box. That means you can reduce the size of your tuck box.
A folded sheet is our simplest option for any original card game. It does the job–communicating what players need to know, without any frills. If you’re designing a standard poker deck, however, your custom card decks may not need any instructions at all.
Instruction style cost
While instructions are a crucial part of your game, they can also drive up cost quite a bit. Try printing your card game instructions on the box or simply in black and white on a sheet of paper. Or, if you want to create a full color, glamorous instruction booklet, find out about other substitutions you can make throughout the card game manufacturing process to help you save money. We’ve detailed lots of budgeting strategies in our cost section.
