How to print
Once you have downloaded a pack, it's up to you how to print it. For best results, I highly recommend finding a print shop near you and asking for a print with the following characteristics:
|Size||A3 (297 × 420 mm)||Cards will be roughly the same size as regular playing cards.|
|Ink colors||4/1||This means each page is full color on the front (CMYK), and grayscale on the back side.|
|Paper type||Coated 350g/m2||This is thick, shiny paper.|
|Lamination||Gloss||Protects the cards with a thin layer of plastic, and gives them a nice look and feel.|

- Remember pages are A3-sized; that's larger than regular A4 paper.
- Print a single page first just in case, to ensure the colors look good and the smallest texts are easily legible.
- If using a print shop, you might want to ask in more than one place, as the print price may vary significantly.
- If laminated, cut the cards with a box cutter instead of scissors (the latter may result in rough edges and unstuck lamination).
- Stick closely to the cutting lines and don't rush.
