Does anyone have a good method for splitting cards? I need the resulting card to be as flat as possible, as the effect uses rough and smooth, and I need perfect alignment.

Any advice gratefully received!

Tim

Search Google for "wowbound card splitting"

The second result, titled "Card Splitting Tutorial," is just that, a wonderful tutorial on card splitting.

Splitting the layers of a card apart. You can take a part from two split cards and make a double face and a double back. Read that tutorial, even if you don't plan on doing it. It's not very long and it will improve your overall knowledge of the way cards are made and why some cards feel how they do.

Just out of curiosity, why bother? Invest in an assorted deck. For about 6 bucks and you get a whole bunch of double backers, double facers, blank backers, blank facers, double facers and so on and so on...

For some it may be a matter of economics. Why buy a whole set of assorted cards when you only need one or two cards? Someone may wish to make a type of split card that is not included in an assortment deck, a magnetic card for example. Granted, magnetic cards are also available, but at a price.

I have done something kind of different and it works. I sand the cards to the desired thickness and then use a square to set them together. For me it is economics along with the challange of finding a new way to do something.
