The cards in the video look like they are paper stock and not card stock. Are the cards more like the paper in a book or like 3x5 cards? Also, what are the dimensions of the cards?

Good eye. You can tell by the uneven edges that the cards I show in “The Deal” are hand-made from the PDF. I’m not using real cards in either “The Deal” or “The Wall” video but standard laser printer paper copies from the pdf, cut by hand with scissors. I received my decks of cards after filming the videos.

The actual cards are 5x7, and are printed on card stock. I’m not sure what the weight of the card stock is, but it is thicker, stiffer, and glossier than a standard 3x5 card. They’re durable, too. I have passed one deck around to several people, carried it in my backpack, read it, and loaned it out, and it’s still pristine.

Thanks for the information. That is what I was hoping to hear.
