FAQ

When will my Pocket deck (in a tin) arrive?

Pocket decks are scheduled to ship March/April. Thank you so much for your patience. We have been met with an unusual amount of delays due to Covid and its effects on production and shipping. I promise your wait will be worth it! ----------------------------------------------------------------------

Where can I find the PDF guidebook for the Pocket deck?

There is a link on the back of the sticker sheet that came inside of the tin.

Do you accept Returns?

No, unfortunately we cannot accept returns. All deck orders, including pre-orders, are also non-refundable. 

Many items are made-to-order and I am unable to restock this kind of inventory.

All apparel sales are final. Please take note of the sizing information available and feel free to reach out to me directly if you have any questions before purchasing. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- 

Please use your correct address!
Often times orders are processed for shipment very quickly and address changes are not possible. Customer will be asked to cover additional shipping charges if items need to be reshipped.
 
Thank you so much for understanding! This is a small business run by myself and one other person and an excessive amount of time is put into running everything behind the scenes. Thank you for shopping small!
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------
How long will delivery take? 
We do our very best to have shipments out as quickly as possible. Domestic orders are shipped within 3-5 business days and usually take an extra 3 to arrive. Delivery time for international orders can take up to 4-5 weeks, depending on your chosen shipping speed. Your package will come with tracking information.
 
First Edition box sets and the Pocket Deck are currently out of stock domestically and are shipping from overseas with standard shipping to the US that takes roughly 2-3 weeks but can take longer due to Covid/transit delays. This item will ship separately from other items in your order.
 
Please note that Covid has delayed flights/shipments and there is a chance that your package is delayed up to one additional week. Please contact me if you have not received your package after the 5-6 week mark.
 
I plan on fully stocking all of my items domestically by June/July. The logistics of trying to do this during extreme affects on the supply chain due to Covid has been challenging, but I am doing all that I can to make your experience positive! Thank you for your patience.

What is the difference between the Linen Edition and the Pocket Tin? Do they come with physical guidebooks?
These two decks are very different! Both are smaller than the original First Edition cards, however their cardstock and size are different. The Pocket Edition is smaller in size than the Linen Edition (please see the listing for exact dimensions), it is a 300gsm matte finish, similar to the First Edition, with matte gold gilding. It comes in a custom-made tin box with a sliding lid and a surprise sticker sheet inside.
The Linen Edition is 300gsm thickness with a linen finish, which makes it feel even thinner than the Pocket Edition. The size is shorter than the original so it makes for easier riffle shuffling. The Linen Edition comes in a sturdy tuck box, no gilding on the cards, no sticker sheet inside.
Neither of these decks comes with physical guidebook. They have pdf guidebooks, which are a slightly condensed version of the original.
The Linen Edition deck is shipping as soon as mid-February. The Pocket Deck is scheduled to start shipping in April.

What is the difference between the First Edition and the Second Edition that will be printed in 2023?

The First Edition does not include a gender-neutral or nature-based Lovers card. The Second Edition will come with all three versions, the original and the two mentioned above. The Second Edition will also have art updates to many of the cards and there will be new borders (and maybe also a limited borderless version also available, depending on how well the Kickstarter goes). The box and card-back art will also be updated and new. There may be a difference in card stock finish in the Second Edition. Both box sets come with a small physical guidebook.

I am planning on creating a deck of my own, can you offer advise?
At present, I am at maximum capacity with my current workload and need to focus 100% on the final printing of our full-size guidebook as well as fulfill the 2021 Kickstarter. If you still want advice come summer time, please send an email then. I offer 30 min deck creation sessions free of charge. In the past people have asked for a way tip for my time, not necessary, but if you feel called to there is a PayPal tip link in my IG bio.
