How to Make Your Own Oracle Cards
Have you ever wanted to make your own Oracle deck, but you are not sure how to do it? Maybe you don’t feel you have any drawing skills, or you do have drawing skills and want to know how you can give you pictures a more magical look.
I use between 3 and 5 smartphone apps in my Oracle and Tarot deck making.
Android apps used: Mirrograph 2 free, Magic Photo Lab, Ultimate Photo Mixer, Sketchbook for galaxy, and Instagram. Sometimes I also use an app called Smart Image Editor.
If you have an iphone you can use: Amaziograph (iphone) instead of Mirrograph(android), PhotoJus Bokeh FX (iphone) instead of Magic photo lab (android), Fused (iphone) instead of Ultimate photo mixer (android), Sketchbook mobile (iphone) instead of Sketchbook for galaxy (android). These are my app suggestions. Explore and find other awesome apps to use.
If you want to record yourself drawing, you can use the DU recorder app. The DU recorder app is great if you want to make a time-lapse movie of your drawings or making a drawing tutorial.
How to publish your own Oracle deck
When publishing your own deck it can be difficult to find a printing place that takes small orders. More often than not they have a minimum of several thousand decks which will cost a lot of money all up. Here is a link to a great blog about different deck publishers and their prices.
Make my playing cards website could be the best option if you have smaller quantities. 🙂 Here is the link to their website.
How to promote your Oracle deck
Promoting your tarot deck does not have to be an expensive journey either. You can sell on etsy, ebay, and even create a website for your deck. Social media such as Instagram is a great way to promote your deck. You can also make youtube videos where you show people how to read with your deck.
I wish you all the best on your deck creating journey. 🙂
