Do tarot cards come with a guidebook?

Create your own custom affirmation cards today with Ivory!

Many tarot decks do indeed come with a guidebook, a practice that has become increasingly common in the tarot community. These guidebooks serve as a bridge between the creator's vision and the user's experience, enriching the journey into the world of tarot. Here’s a few reasons why guidebooks are integral to the tarot experience:

  • Introduction to Tarot: fewor those new to tarot, a guidebook provides an essential introduction to the basics of tarot reading, including the structure of the deck (such as the Major and Minor Arcana), the significance of the suits, and the general meanings of the cards. This foundational knowledge is crucial for beginners to start their tarot journey.
  • Card Meanings and Interpretations: each card in a tarot deck is rich with symbolism and potential interpretations. A guidebook offers insights into the specific imagery and symbolism used in the deck, guiding users in understanding the multifaceted meanings of each card.
  • Reading Techniques and Spreads: guidebooks often include instructions on how to conduct tarot readings, including different spreads (layouts of cards) and how to interpret the cards in relation to one another.
  • Personal Reflections and Insights: many guidebooks also offer personal reflections, exercises, or questions for contemplation based on the cards. This can transform a tarot reading from a simple divinatory practice into a deeper tool for personal reflection and growth.
  • Connecting with the Deck’s Theme: for thematic decks, the guidebook provides a context for the theme and how it relates to the tarot. Whether it's based on mythology, nature, or personal growth, the guidebook helps to unify the theme with traditional tarot interpretations.
  • Creator’s Voice and Vision: a guidebook allows the creator to share their vision, philosophy, and the journey that led to the deck’s creation. This personal touch adds a unique dimension to the deck, allowing users to connect more deeply with the cards and their meanings.

Including a guidebook with your tarot deck not only enriches the user's experience but also aligns with our values of depth, quality, and sustainability. Whether you’re a seasoned tarot reader or a curious newcomer, a well-crafted guidebook can transform your tarot deck into a tool for profound insight and personal discovery.

At Ivory, we've seen firsthand the transformative power of pairing insightful literature with beautifully crafted tarot cards. This combination not only elevates the user experience but also deepens the connection between the creator and the audience. Here are some advantages of selling a book with your tarot cards:

  • Enhanced Understanding: a book provides users with essential background information about the tarot deck, including the symbolism, history, and interpretations of each card. This deeper understanding enriches the user's experience, making the cards more accessible to beginners and offering new perspectives to seasoned practitioners.
  • Personal Connection: including a book offers a space for you to share your unique vision and the inspiration behind your tarot deck. This personal touch can create a stronger emotional connection with your audience, as they appreciate the thought, creativity, and personal journey that contributed to the deck's creation.
  • Brand Differentiation: in a crowded market, a tarot deck accompanied by a well-written, insightful book can stand out, offering more value and a unique selling proposition. This can attract customers looking for a more comprehensive and enriching tarot experience, setting your product apart from others.
  • Educational Value: for those looking to delve deeper into the art of tarot reading, a book can serve as an educational tool, offering insights into the interpretation of cards, the use of intuition in readings, and the application of tarot in various aspects of life.
  • Market Expansion: by offering a book that appeals to both beginners and experienced tarot users, you can expand your market reach. Novices will feel more confident purchasing your deck with a guidebook, while experts will appreciate the additional layers of meaning and context a book can provide.

We are committed to sustainability and ethical production practices. By choosing to produce your tarot cards and books with us, you're not only creating a product that offers profound personal value but also one that respects the planet and its resources.

What is the difference between a perfect bound book and a booklet?

Understanding the difference between a perfect bound book and a booklet is essential for anyone looking to produce printed books, as each offers unique advantages tailored to different card deck needs.

Perfect Bound Book

A perfect bound book is a type of binding commonly used for guidebooks, thick magazines, and novels. This method involves the pages being glued together at the spine with a strong, flexible adhesive. The cover is made of a heavier laminated paper, providing a smooth and professional finish. Perfect binding creates a flat spine that can be printed on, making it an excellent choice for books that will be displayed on shelves. It is ideal for publications with a higher page count, typically ranging from 50 pages to several hundred. The result is a durable, attractive book that exudes quality and resilience, perfect for a guidebook to go with your cards.

Stapled Booklet

A booklet is a smaller publication, often consisting of a few sheets of paper that are folded and stapled or stitched through the centre fold. Booklets are lighter in both weight and page count, making them an excellent option for informational brochures, game instructions, rules, programmes, and other materials that are intended for brief use or as handouts. The simplicity of the booklet format allows for quick production and flexibility in design, making it a cost-effective option for smaller projects with a quick turnaround time.

The choice between a perfect bound book and a booklet largely depends on the purpose of the publication, the desired aesthetic, the budget, and the longevity of the item in question. For those looking to make a significant impact with their material, whether it's an artist showcasing their work in a beautifully crafted catalogue or a startup presenting an annual report, perfect binding offers a sense of permanence and professionalism. For projects requiring a more straightforward, accessible approach, booklets provide an efficient and versatile solution.

At Ivory, we understand the importance of selecting the right binding technique to represent your project. Our mission is to champion creators, guiding you through the choices that will best serve your dream pack. Whether you are creating a perfect bound book to teach others about your cards or an informative booklet to get users started with your deck, we are here to support you with our expertise, sustainable practices, and dedication to excellence in the UK.
