A 2019 Update
Posted on January 1, 2019
I figured it was about time for me to post an update.
tl;dr: I've closed down my Etsy store, but the NGNL playing cards are still available here.
I was originally planning on reopening the store after summer 2018 ended, just like I had for the two previous summers, but decided not to for two reasons:
- Etsy increased their fees, and I didn't want to increase the deck cost any more. $17.50 for a set of novelty playing cards is already a lot, but the new fees could still cause me to go in the red.
- I had a incredibly busy semester ahead of me (took 6 classes, one of which was the infamous 6.172), and I didn't have time to respond to customer inquiries.
MakePlayingCards.com rolled out a new marketplace feature recently that allows users to start selling their own designs on their website, and I realized that this marketplace solved both my problems. I would be free from Etsy's fees and also not have to act as customer support. So, here we are, and the cards are being sold at a marginally cheaper price (like, 30 cents) here.
