Q. Why are there different editions of the Darkness of Light Tarot?
A. Each version of the Darkness of Light Tarot aims to improve the look and feel of the cards over the previous version. From card design to hand feel, from card stock to color palette, each detail is carefully considered and adjusted as necessary to continually improve the final product.
Q. What is the difference between the second and 3rd edition?
A. The 3rd edition offers some updates in design over the second edition. Specifically, slightly higher contrast images, a redesigned card face, a lighter and easier to read theme, a better box fit, a revised insert card, and the same artwork found in the second edition.
Q. What is the difference between the first and second edition?
A. The second edition offers some updates in design over the first edition. Specifically, stiffer card stock, easier to open box, improved translations, more vivid colors, revised order of the deck, and new insert cards.
Q. Why doesn't my deck have shrink wrap, or appears as if its been opened?
A. Its a quality assurance check the artist does to ensure there are no printing issues in the final product. And of course, if you ordered a signed copy, the artist has to open the box to sign the inside top lid.
Q. Where can I find the guidebook? Is there a digital guidebook?
A. There is a guidebook available for purchase as a standalone item on the PURCHASE page. As far as a digital copy, there was a digital guidebook available for download before the official printed version was released, but since then, the digital version has been replaced by the printed version, which is much more complete in its information and offering.
Q. What happens if my order arrives damaged, isn't what I ordered or doesn't arrive?
A. Unfortunately for whatever reason, sometimes these things happen. You can reach the studio at email@example.com, and I'll work with you directly to find a solution!
Q. I'd like to order something but its out of stock!?
A. I work as quickly as I can to replace the signed decks, so check back often to make sure new stock hasn't arrived. If you're looking for a deluxe edition, I'm working on it, but progress is slow since everything is created from hand and must be sourced from quality reclaimed wood. Your best bet is to email me and I'll add you to the waiting list so you'll be notified first once they become available.
Q. How long does it take for an order to ship?
A. Most orders will ship within 24-48 hours unless there is a problem, in which case I try to contact the buyer to notify them. The package is shipped via USPS.
Q. What does the Standard Darkness of Light Tarot deck contain?
A. 78 cards featuring custom illustrations by the artist, which are thematically based on the Universal Tarot, plus 2 additional thank you cards. You'll also receive a cotton deck storage bag with your order, and a small thank you note with recommendations on how to best open the deck box to avoid damage.
Q. What does the DELUXE Darkness of Light Tarot deck contain?
A. The Deluxe version of the Darkness of Light Tarot features a 100% handmade wooden deck box created from reclaimed wood, a vial of black Hawaiian sea salt, raw black tourmaline for grounding, and quartz for cleansing. The deluxe version also includes a signed copy of the standard 78 card deck, and a cotton deck storage bag. Shipping is free on the deluxe edition.
Q. What if I'd like to purchase an original painting or something else not listed on the site?
A. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd be glad to help however I can.
Q. Are there any other upcoming products from your studio?
A. Always! But I like to keep people guessing! ;)
Q. I find the cards inspiring and would like to collaborate.
A. Email me at email@example.com!
Q. How often will the information on this website change?
A. Whenever there is a significant adjustment to the product or new collaborations, sponsors, products, news or events to announce, I'll update the website. I'll also do my best to write a blog post each holiday and keep up with significant deck events.
