Topic: Gaffed miniature cards - help needed
Message: Posted by: SydBeckman (Dec 31, 2012 02:55PM)
I'm a wood worker and made a miniature version of an effect that traditionally uses full sized cards. I need two sets of gaffed miniature cards. I made some using a cheap set of Chinese cards that are paper and way too thick once gaffed.

I want them to resemble miniature bicycle cards. What I need is a set of double facers; two blue backed jokers; a complete set of red backed normal - but that match the appearance of the blue back and double facers; and finally about 20 double backed with one side blue and one side red. If there is anyone wiling to make a set at a reasonable price shoot me an email. I know I can buy miniature ungaffed bikes but they need to match in appearance which might require the creation of a normal deck. You can email me at sydsipad <at> g m a I l . c o m.

Thanks,
Syd

You might contact Marty Graham at http://www.martinismagic.com/ and see if you provide the small decks he could make what you want and what the price would be. He is very fair on his prices and the quality is excellent
He is a member here on the Café I do believe.. Good luck with your project

If you have a scanner you might want to try this idea. Scan the back of a regular sized bicycle card and the fronts of and cards you want. Then just keep reducing them and printing them out. I'd probably try rubber cementing the paper copies to photo paper. That might give you a desired thickness.
