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

This deck is currently shipping from my overseas shipping center. Unless you opted for FedEx, they will take 1-2 weeks to ship to the US. You will not see any tracking updates until the package reaches USPS, this can take up to one week. After this, shipping is fairly quick and can arrive 2-3 days after this point.
Shipping varies per country, but you can expect a similar time frame to the above.

By July/August, all decks will be in stock in the US and shipping speed will be 2-3 business days for all items.

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!
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!
When will my full-size Guidebook be shipped? 
The guidebooks will be printed by June 7th. Kickstarter backers who opted for the guidebook-only reward will ship first, beginning at the end of June. All pre-orders will ship immediately after. US Media Mail pre-orders are scheduled to ship late July/August, once inventory reaches the US. Kickstarter backers with rewards that include additional items will also ship July/August so that all items can ship together. 
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 fulfilling the 2021 Kickstarter. If you still want advice come autumn, please send an email then.
You can also watch these videos! They are Q&A interviews for deck creating/running a Kickstarter. A recent one with The Empathetic Chicken, and another one here with Cosmic Wheel Mystic.
