It's finally complete! This is a deck of 82 playing cards featuring ponies and cutie marks. There's one suit for each of the mane six's cutie mark (Apples, Balloons, Bolts, Flutters, Gems, and Sparkles), plus four jokers. Make sure to click the Download link for a 300-DPI PNG image of each individual card.
Major thanks to the vector artists who contributed to this project:
Q: Why 6 suits?
A: I couldn't decide on four suits. This way, the user can decide which four suits to use, or just bend the rules and use all six!
Q: Which suits are "red" and which suits are "black"?
A: Again, this is up to the user. My recommendation would be to use Apples, Flutters, and Sparkles as red suits, and Balloons, Bolts, and Gems as black (or blue, rather) suits.
Q: How can I buy these?
A: No plans yet on mass-producing these, as there are a lot of logistical and legal barriers to doing so (copyright concerns, plus the fact that I borrowed a good quantity of vectors from other artists) You are, however, welcome to print out your own copies for personal use.
Q: Okay, so how do I print these out?
A: You can try printing them out on card stock. You can probably find some at a craft store or an office supply store. If you don't have a decent printer, you can try getting them printed at Kinko's or some other copy store. There are also websites that will sell card stock specifically made for printing custom playing cards on (here is one such website [link]
-- note that I have not ordered from this site yet and cannot vouch for them). I have not personally attempted to print these yet -- if you do print your own, please share your experience in the comments!
Q: Will you do a suit with (Celestia/Luna/insert other pony here)?
A: I might do a Celestia and/or Luna suit sometime down the road, but not any time soon. If I do, you can bet I'll post it on my deviantart account.
Update: Another brony did suits for Celestia and Luna, check them here
