Choosing Your Affirmation Card Size

The size of affirmation cards can vary widely, depending on their intended use, the amount of text or artwork they feature, and personal preference. However, here are some common sizes that tend to be both practical and popular among users and creators alike.

  • Poker measures at 63 x 88mm, which is the standard size for playing cards. This size is small enough to be easily handled and carried in a purse or pocket, yet large enough to feature meaningful artwork and legible text. It's a versatile size that works well for many, offering a balance between portability and usability.
  • Tarot for those looking for a bit more space to express creativity or convey more detailed messages, a larger size such as 70 x 120 mm is also common, particularly in tarot and oracle cards. This size allows for more intricate designs and longer affirmations, providing a more immersive experience for the user.
  • Large Tarot is perfect for showcasing the intricate details of your artwork on the cards. Measuring at 89 x 127mm, these cards are best suited for anyone who wants a more entrancing experience for their affirmation cards.
  • Wide Tarot offers a more practical advantage as they are easier to hold, especially for someone who prefers a more substantial feel to their cards. Measuring at 85 x 120mm, our wide tarot size is perfect for showing off intricate details in artwork that would be lost on a smaller size.

At Ivory, we here to help innovators and creators bring their visions to life. Our unique test pack service allows you to experiment with different sizes and materials for your affirmation cards, ensuring you find the perfect match for your project. Whether you're drawn to the compact efficiency of standard playing card sizes or the expansive canvas of larger dimensions, we're here to guide you through the process of selecting the ideal size for your affirmation cards.

How Are Affirmation Cards Used

We're here to help! Read our extensive guide on how you can start creating your own affirmation cards.

Affirmation cards are popular for a wide range of reasons, each seeking something unique from these small but powerful tools. At Ivory, we've seen firsthand the diverse motivations behind choosing affirmation cards, and we're passionate about crafting products that resonate deeply with those motivations. Affirmation cards serve as daily reminders, personal motivators, and intimate guides through the complexities of life, offering support and inspiration in a tangible form.

  1. Personal Empowerment and Self-Care: One of the primary reasons individuals are drawn to affirmation cards is for personal empowerment and self-care. In a world that often feels fast paced and demanding, affirmation cards offer a moment of pause, a breath of positivity, and a chance to reset one's mindset towards self-compassion and strength. They are a tool for self-improvement, helping individuals to cultivate a positive mindset and reinforce self-belief.
  2. Mindfulness and Meditation: Affirmation cards are also used as aids in mindfulness and meditation practices. They can serve as focal points for meditation, helping to centre the mind and guide thoughts towards constructive and uplifting paths. By focusing on the positive affirmations, individuals can quieten the chatter of negative thoughts and cultivate a sense of peace and well-being.
  3. Support Through Life’s Challenges: Life is full of challenges and transitions. During these times, affirmation cards can serve as a beacon of hope and resilience. They provide comfort and encouragement, reminding individuals of their inner strength and the possibility of positive outcomes. For many, these cards are a companion through times of change, offering solace and motivation.
  4. Creative and Professional Inspiration: Beyond personal development, affirmation cards are also used for creative and professional inspiration. They can spark ideas, encourage risk-taking, and foster a positive mindset that's essential for overcoming creative blocks or professional challenges. For artists, writers, entrepreneurs, and anyone in a creative or challenging profession, affirmation cards can be a source of courage and originality.

How To: Make A Affirmation Deck

Creating your custom affirmation card deck is super easy! Here's how our process works:

  1. Define Your Theme and Purpose: Begin by contemplating the theme and purpose of your affirmation card deck. What is the core message you wish to convey? Who is your target audience? Your theme could be broad, like general positivity and self-love, or it could be more specific, like affirmations for personal growth, stress relief, or creative inspiration. Understanding your theme and purpose will guide your decisions on design, content, and packaging.
  2. Write Your Affirmations: Crafting the affirmations is at the heart of your deck. Each affirmation should be positive, present tense, and empowering. They should be statements that the user can resonate with, reflect upon, or aspire to. Keep your target audience in mind and write affirmations that speak directly to their needs and aspirations. Aim for a variety of affirmations that cover different aspects of your theme.
  3. Design Your Cards: The design of your cards should reflect the theme and tone of your affirmations. Consider elements like imagery, colour schemes, fonts, and layout. You might choose to include artwork, photographs, or simple, elegant text designs. If you're not a designer yourself, consider collaborating with a professional who aligns with your vision. Remember, the visual appeal of your cards can greatly enhance the user's experience and connection to the affirmations.
  4. Choose Your Card Size and Material: Selecting the right size and material for your cards is crucial. Common sizes include the standard playing card size (63 x 88 mm) and larger sizes for more visual impact (70 x 120 mm). At Ivory, we offer a range of materials, including FSC® certified options, to ensure your cards are not only beautiful but also environmentally responsible. Consider the feel, durability, and finish of your cards, as these factors will influence how they are received and used.
  5. Prototype Your Deck: Before committing to a large print run, create a prototype of your deck. This allows you to test and refine your design, affirmations, and the overall feel of your cards. At Ivory, our unique test pack service is designed to help you do just this, enabling you to make any necessary adjustments to ensure your final product is exactly as you envisioned.
  6. Packaging and Presentation: The packaging of your affirmation card deck not only protects the cards but also sets the stage for the user's experience. Design packaging that complements your deck’s theme and makes a strong visual impact.
  7. Marketing and Distribution: Think about how you will share your affirmation card deck with the world. Will you sell online, in stores, or both? Utilise social media, content marketing, and collaborations to reach your target audience. Share the story behind your deck, the inspiration for your affirmations, and the impact you hope to have.

Creating an affirmation card deck is a journey of creativity, reflection, and intention. We're honoured to support creators like you in bringing your vision to life, offering our expertise and services to ensure your affirmation card deck is a source of inspiration and empowerment for all who encounter it. Embrace the process and let your passion shine through every card.
