Can you believe we've been creating these gorgeous collectors' decks for a decade? 

We all still have vivid memories of our first campaign, and how very nerve-wracking it was. Many of you reading this were there for it, and we are so grateful! It is because of you all that we have felt supported and loved all these years. For that, we can never thank you enough.


Because of all of you we are able to give work to hundreds of artists. We are able to spread their work all over the world and celebrate art and tarot with each new theme we create. We learn, and grow and evolve with your guidance and our 78 Tarot community is the best of the best humans to ever exist. And that is a fact.



We wanted to go ALL out for you for our tenth birthday! 

We wanted to create something incredibly one of a kind and special, maybe to never be created again. We wanted to reprint fan favorites in our OOP (Out of Print) decks and bring them all together to celebrate.

We very carefully curated an entire tarot deck from cards of every single deck we have ever published, favorites from long OOP decks, and because we are extra - we put in 11 wild cards and 2 meditations. And because we wanted to be even more extra and give even more artists work - we decided to create 21 extra cards to go into the deck. Yes, you read that right. There are 31 extra cards in this deck with more to unlock!!! It is an absolute masterpiece from every angle and we are so very happy to present it to you!

 

Since it is our tenth anniversary party, we have some EPIC gifts for you! 

We will start with shipping!!! For the first time ever we will be shipping from two destinations - the USA and the UK. This means we are able to provide cheaper shipping prices to everyone in the EU and UK and even Australia. You can see the costs below. Shipping will be charged post campaign.



You can see the rest of the goodies under the FREE GIFTS section!

This deck will arrive in style in a specially designed flip top magnetic box! The box, deck and cards will all have a luxurious rose petal finish, just like our Halloween decks. They will be adorned with a sparkling gold holographic foil that turns rainbow in the light.




The inside of the box will have a quote that was chosen by our amazing followers. 

"In art, the hand can never execute anything higher than the heart can imagine". 
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Every part of this design was created to make you feel as if you are attending a grand, magical celebration!
 


There is an option to add this matching gorgeous case that measures 10 by 6 inches and fits the entire box.



It is baby blue ink and gold foil printed on black 80oz cotton with a silver zipper. Available as an addon and pledge tiers.

Edit




3. 25 inches wide & 5.5. inches tall ~ Rose Petal Finish ~ Gold Holographic Embellishments on Front & Back on 400 GSM paper.

Our cards measure 3.25 by 5.5 inches, to accentuate each piece of beautiful art. They proudly feature each incredible artists name on the front, but do so in a way that is not distracting to your reading. They have a rose petal finish that makes the colors vibrant and lush, and the cards feel like velvet. They are printed on 400 GSM paper making them thick and durable. There is gold holographic foil on the card fronts in the nameplate, and on the backs as well.



Because there are 31 extra cards, it is almost like having an oracle included, since you can separate the extra cards from the main deck and use them as two decks to have a whole different divination experience.









































We take our card backs very seriously around these parts. 

Kayti, (myself, as I am the one typing this) has done all card backs except our second deck we published - 78 Tarot Nautical. 

The card back for this deck had to be pretty epic. This one came after my very stubborn self finally listened to my bestie (of over 20 years) who happens to also be the AD, who basically told me in no uncertain terms that my original design was pure, um, doo doo, and I should just redo it from scratch. 



She has this magical way of making sure she gets the BEST artwork out everyone, and all the while make you feel absolutely amazing and inspired. She does this with all of our artists too and it is nothing short of magic.

Because of her, I created what I think is the best card back I have made to this date. I hope it makes you think of grand celebrations! I hope you feel the energy and love of the most very magical decade ever. For that is the energy I wanted to capture for this very very special deck.



The finish will match the card fronts - a velvet rose petal, so soft to the touch. The gold will be gold holographic, that is prismatic when light shines on it. A confetti of colors to match the liveliness of the birthday party vibe captured on the card.



Edit


We love a good artsy guidebook. 

Which is why our companion guides are 8 by 6 inch, 256 pages of not only full card art and meanings and exclusive spreads, but also a list of artists and a section of creative processes. 

The book has gorgeous holographic foil on the front cover to match the deck and cards. The inside is glossy to accentuate the colorful artwork. It is available as both PDF as well as a physical option. We love giving our customers the opportunity to choose between having a physical or digital copy.   

Like all of our books, the meanings and card descriptions are written by our beautiful Goddess Magician Trish Sullivan. They are rich with meaning and created for beginners to experts. She not only writes our guidebooks, she also works with Delphine and the artists to make sure each of the cards have nailed the meaning and key visuals. A tarot reader with over 30 years experience, she is impeccable and thorough at making sure each card is as rich with meaning as her companion writing is.





Edit


This will be our 6th mini!!! We are kind of addicted. 

They are just so great to take with you anywhere you go. We wanted to make a less bells and whistles deck - one that would be smaller, cheaper and a more budget-friendly version so more amazing souls can own these beautiful collections of art and tarot. 

Like our larger deck, they come with a borderless design. They are about as big as a business card, measuring 2.5 inches wide by 3.5 inches tall. They are printed on a thinner paper for easy shuffling - 300 GSM as opposed to our larger decks which are on 400 GSM. They have a satin finish and come in a convenient little tuck box. They do not have foil or edging like the larger deck.



Edit

The Exclusive Backerkit only Spread Book:

For the very first time ever we will be offering an EXCLUSIVE (meaning you can only get this in the campaign) spread book featuring the art from this gorgeous Anniversary deck. We will have a spread from every tarot deck we have done, two wild card and Oracle spreads, all 4 elementals and all 4 witches of the seasons (special cards commissioned just for our anniversary deck). The book will be letter sized, and SPIRAL so it will lay flat. These images and spread themes were chosen via polls on our launch party, and the spreads are written by the amazing Trish Sullivan.

The Exclusive Backerkit only Calendar:

Also for the first time we are creating a Backerkit Exclusive Calendar! These images were also chosen via our launch party. This calendar is 11 inches wide and 8.5 by 11 inches tall. It is wire bound and the Calendar will start on a Sunday.




Edit


Did someone say extra cards? 

For the very first time ever we will have EXCLUSIVE collectors cards to unlock. 3 additional cards that ONLY backers will get. They will be printed with the deck and then separated and will be sent separately just to backers, so you can add them to your deck and have something extremely collectible. Nobody but backers of this project will possess these magical cards. And, by unlocking them we not only give even more artists work, we give them all pay bumps! Our first one unlocks at 75k! It is the Lucky Chicken card and it is epic.   

Did someone say cake? 

We sure did! Taste the rainbow. 

Let there be Spreads! 

Yes, you read that right! Our Spread Goddess Trish Sullivan is hard at work creating a digital spread from every single one of our tarot decks. This will be in addition to the Spread Book we are printing, and since they are digital, you can print them out and add them to your book, or just use them on your fave smart device!!!

Special Stand!!!  

We have a gorgeous wooden card stand to unlock, this beauty will hold a single card or two minis. 

And most importantly... 

Every 10k over the goal starting at 75k, we will be unlocking an artists pay bump for our 111 extremely talented artists. We thank you so much for supporting our incredible artists. We absolutely would be nothing without them, or our amazing and loyal backer.




Edit

EXCLUSIVE CARDS FOR FREEEEEEEE!

For stretch goals for this special anniversary, we really wanted to provide something that would bring even more money to more artists! Thus, the exclusive cards were born...

We decided that starting on our tenth anniversary we would begin a brand new tradition - from now on, we will have exclusive cards to unlock for Achievement Goals (stretch goals) - which are goals that are achieved by backers in the campaign - either hitting overage in funding, backer amounts, or even actions like sharing 1000 times. 

Exclusive you say? 

Yea, exclusive. Meaning ONLY backers will get these very highly collectible cards.

They will be printed with the full size deck so they will have all the bling the deck does, but they will be separated by our factory and sealed up separately JUST for backers. NOBODY else will ever own these.

Each one of these hold a very special meaning to us. 



Unlocks when we hit $75k 

If you have been following us since the beginning, then you will remember we once had rubber chicken mascots. Our AD Delphine Malidore has an entire collection, and they have always fun and much needed comic relief through the last decade of running this project.
Del 's (our AD) Magical Collection


The whole idea for exclusive cards began with this one. We wanted to do something extra special for this deck, since it celebrates a decade of 78 Tarot, so we hired incredible artist and fellow chicken-lover Amelia Leonards to create us a one of a kind 10th Anniversary Lucky Chicken Card.




This card will ONLY be for backers of physical tiers, meaning if you have pledged for something being mailed to you, this will be added to your box. It will ONLY unlock if we hit 75k. It will come separately for you to add to the deck, and only backers of this project will own it. Ever. It is an exclusive gift for you all who help make our dream come true.

You will see other themed Lucky Chicken cards in the future but they will be different each time, and in order to catch them all - you have to be a backer. Or rob a backer which seems counter productive.



If you have been following us awhile, you may know the founder of this project is a tad obsessed with frogs. So it is only fitting that we include a Frog card. We scoured artists portfolios for the PERFECT one and found this gem created by the one and only Annette Hassell. This one has a very special story behind it, which you will discover if we unlock this card at  85k.



And our final one is absolutely priceless to us, and you will see why.  This is actually the card created by our treasured Michael Calandra for the 3 of cups for our 78 Tarot Masters Edition - Medieval - which won't be crowdfunding until next February! So this is your chance to get it before anyone else, and also see a sneak preview of our deck Medieval. Which is a Masters deck - meaning only 8 artists are creating 10 cards each. They will be much different than our single card collabs and we can't wait to show you! But for now... Please enjoy the founders of 78 Tarot, and the heart and soul at the helm of the ship. The Dream Team card.



Edit
This deck has been carefully curated from cards of every single deck we have ever published, including favorites from long OOP decks. But as you're looking at the art from these decks, maybe you're curious about the rest of our decks!  

Maybe you've fallen in love with The Empress from 78 Tarot Halloween or The Chariot from 78 Tarot Magical deck? Temperance from 78 Tarot Animal or The Hierophant from 78 Tarot Ecological? Or some of our Wild cards, which have appeared in our previous Oracle decks.

We have included our currently in print tarot and oracle decks as add ons - you can add to your collection by adding these to your pledge, alongside accessories such as card stands, a reading from Trish, or snag a gorgeous tarot cloth designed by Kayti!



Edit


Shipping will be charged when you are sent your surveys in late September or early October (if we hit our timeline goals with no delay). Shipping will not be charged with your rewards via Backerkit on May 24th at the end of this campaign, but instead will be charged separately with your survey. This is to allow us to give you the most accurate and affordable costs based on what you have purchased.

This chart is what the current rates are, they are subject to change if the postal service raises fees before we fulfill the campaign in the Fall.



Shipping may increase if you have add-ons based on the total weight of your package.  Basically anything above 50 oz in weight will increase your cost.  A deck, for example, is 1 lb. Books are 10 oz. Pocket decks are 4 oz.

If you would like us to give you an estimation of how much your shipping will be, based on your add-ons, please message us here or at [email protected] and we will happily assist you. Please note that this cost listed does not include USA state sales tax (required to be collected via Backerkit) and it does not include any VAT or duties for international orders.¬†

The customer is responsible for any fees when entering their country.




Edit


We are not a large company with a giant budget to pay artists what they deserve for the incredible masterpieces they have created. Therefore, we have only been able to budget to pay them $50.00 per artwork with the initial goal. 

But in the past, with our incredibly wonderful and loyal backers help, we have been able to pay up to $225 per image depending on the campaign. This is for 111 pieces of art. We are hoping we can raise even more this year, to thank them for their incredible work.

Each Artists Pay Achievement Goal we reach will upgrade this graphic to the current pay they will be receiving for their masterful art.


We thank you so much for supporting hard-working living artists. It is more important now than it has ever been to show them just how very much we appreciate their craft and all the beauty they bring to this world.

78 Tarot is a global art collaboration that creates a new deck every year.  Each deck has a different theme, but is still strongly connected to the RWS system.

The most important part of our mission is to give work to, and be able to publish the work of as many hard working artists as we can. To show as many people on this planet their beautiful soulful art.

We aim to create beautiful, meaningful decks.  We work with some of the best artists in the community and strive to invite diverse artists and produce decks that do not show cultural appropriation, only appreciation. 

We vow to continue improving, to continue listening to our fans and critics and to include diverse races, religions, sexual identities and ages, so that every user can connect to our decks.

She manages everything from shipping & production, to graphic and web design, including coming up with the themes and vibes for our decks, all while being the mom to two young, boisterous boys!

Kayti has been a professional graphic designer & illustrator for 20 years with many products and publications of her own, including two solo oracle decks which can also be purchased via 78 Tarot. 

She lives in beautiful Northern Virginia with her husband, their two human babies Aiden and Quinn, and their firstborn fur-baby Cypress.

All while being the mum to a teenager, conducting tarot readings and teaching workshops in the U.K.

Delphine & Chris Malidore

Delphine Malidore is our Art Director, working with Trish and Kayti to create an image concept for each and every card before assigning these to the perfect artist. She (and Chris) also then provide ongoing feedback for every image throughout the artistic process.
