I spent a lot of money on The Game Crafter. I had to purchase my games to see if I liked them. I also had to purchase my games so The Game Crafter could make my game public and promote it. I didn’t ever have issues with the customer support individuals. So, that’s why I continued to make games and buy them. However, their Manager ended up being really rude to me in a forum. He deleted my post because he disapproved of it. It was a link to my YouTube video. I think it was a tutorial for The Game Crafter. I can’t remember, but the point is, that he didn’t have to be rude about it.
As a result, I decided to find another way for making my games. I did find another company that made games, but that would cost me more money. Once again, I would have to purchase the game to see if I liked it. Printify also does Custom Playing Cards, which you can integrate to other platforms to sell unlike The Game Crafter. I kept asking The Game Crafter for integration, but they didn’t want to do it. Also, companies like The Game Crafter and such get a lot of money for shipping and for making the games. So, that means that you’ll have to sell the game for a higher price for you to get a profit. Unfortunately, you can’t sell poker cards at a very high price because a lot of people sell poker cards for a low price.
So, I continued to research and I found Sizzix. In fact, I found out about Sizzix because I was looking for a way to make poker cards and tarot cards. Would that save money?
Nenaah White Cardstock 110lbs currently at $17.77 (.07/sheet)
Let’s say you can fit 8 poker cards on a sheet. So if you want 54 cards, you’ll have to use 7 sheets. That means you’ll multiply 8 x .07. So, you’ll spend .56 for poker-size cards. If you add another .07 to .56 for your tuck box, you’ll get a total of .63.
After doing the count, I realized that The Game Crafter was taking advantage of people who didn’t have the knowledge of how much they spent on making a card. Anyways, you can purchase the poker die at KSCRAFT called KSCRAFT ATC Card.
In my opinion, it’s better to spend a one-time fee on the Sizzix Big Shot and the dies instead of relying on a company who’ll charge you a lot of money, who might not give you good results, and who might be rude to you.
