    I have submitted my work...

    ...to Schiffer Books. They are "slowing down" with their Tarot contracts, & it may be a LONG time before I know anything from them for sure. Well, fact is that Dal Negro told me to submit too - though they didn't so much as give me specs!! - however, I have them to go to as well so I may not just wait around.

    I also have a line on a really GREAT company who prints up Tarot decks, & all I have to do is have the accompanying booklet printed up elsewhere - my local print-shop - because they allow like 45 pages, & mine is 140. haha

    If I go with them, I will have the booklet printed up 1st, then I'll tell them how much extra room I will need in the box to the exact measurement.

    Anyway, this project is going to see the shelves by sometime next year, MAX... (Wish me luck!)

    Ok, word-up from Schiffer:

    She said, (quote,) "Thank you for your beautiful submission." :D

    Now for the baddish newz...

    It will be at least a YEAR before they make any decision.

    I have now submitted to Dal Negro, who were VERY VERY VAGUE about submissions so I'm not too happy about that. However, I also wrote to good ol' USG (AGAIN!! ), & am waiting to hear back about what exactly to send.

    Luck again!!

    Hehe!!

    Word-up peeps, I heard back from Dal Negro.

    Seems that when they ignored my last e-mail, turns out there were glaring omissions in my info. Also, they FINALLY sent me the specs which I ASKED for, & did NOT get as I say, MOST annoying...

    I have to do the cards at 60x104mm, so not huge but anyway they MIGHT just be interested because she stated, "Before we discuss a price..." & I am assuming that that means on the deck itself, NOT the print-run - um?? Yeah, they PUBLISH - not PRINT, fine distinction. That's what my impression is anyhoo!

    So anyway, back to work - to make up the cards at that size & with a white border for bleed & trim. :D

    I'll be back - HAHAHA!!
