The following are some tips on how to make the most out of your Darkness of Light Tarot deck, as well as some inspiring content and photos from users around the world.
TIP #1: BLACKENED BORDERS
Adding blackened borders to your Darkness of Light Tarot card deck is a great way to clean up the edges of your cards and give it a nice moody personality. Its also a great way to personalize your deck and make it your own. Here are some tips from Instagram users:
- @appalachiangrannywitch: be sure to use a chisel-tip Sharpie! The round tipped ones ... it's too easy to slip and get ink where you don't want it.
@tamipie: I'm gonna do mine in silver.... oh, and DO ONE CARD AT A TIME!
@patrickjfogarty: Use big king size, chisel tip sharpie, one at a time and BAM!
- @sage_and_lily: Use an ink pad (distressed ink is the brand I use), then I just drag the card edge across the pad
- @portoftarot: Sharpie, tim holtz distressed ink or dew drop (my fave)
@squidhearts: Always blacken my edges with a broad tip sharpie, though a normal medium point works, too.
- @twistyprincess: be sure to do them one at a time.....or you end up with a big inky mess on each card
TIP #2: OPENING THE BOX
The box is coated in a matte finish that makes it nice to look at and sturdy, but sometimes difficult to open. If you're a collector or just someone who wants to make sure your box doesn't bend or warp, you'll want to follow these easy to use instructions below:
TIP #3: WAITING FOR THE ORDER
I'm a one man show, so sometimes it can take me a couple days to fulfill an order. That said, I try to fulfill all orders within a day or two. If it takes longer than that, just shoot me and email and I'll look into things to make sure it wasn't somehow overlooked. For fun, here is a time lapse of me working hard to fulfill an order!
