I would like to self-publish my card game with a service that will ship the game to buyers.

The game would include 45 poker-size cards, 17 A5-size cards, 6 small cards carrying 1-6 numbers (as a replacement for a die), a game instructions sheet and a box.

I know two services:

  • TGC but I read they are expensive and not high quality for cards.
  • DriveThru Cards seems to be great but I believe they don't do boxes, am I right?

Are there any other services which could do this for me?

  • Where are you publishing this game? And do you plan to deliver to the domestic market only, or also internationally?

  • I live in Europe, but my main target would be the US, so I would be publishing there. If I can find a good solution for this, I would already be happy. However, it is true that I would like to target Europe as well. May 25, 2016 at 10:26
  • Do you think I could have these cards shipped to buyers without a game box? I guess DriveThru would make a parcel including the cards in their three different sizes. That would be a bit strange, or do you think it would be ok? May 25, 2016 at 17:48

    Still tricky without a tuckbox (which they won't do for individual sales) or a plastic deck box, which they won't do for bigger formats than bridge or poker cards. Any other ideas or alternative self-publishing providers? May 26, 2016 at 8:59

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this isn't about designing the game or testing game mechanics, but soliciting recommendations for production services. Dec 13, 2016 at 22:25

DriveThruCards now offers tuck boxes.

Daniel Solis gives a great review of them here.

    The information that DTC offers boxes is definitely useful, but its usefulness is masked by the "have you tried" question which makes it look like you didn't read OP who explicitly mentions DTC. Perhaps rephrase? Dec 13, 2016 at 21:28

    I've fixed my answer, and added a link to a review of said tuck boxes from DTC.
