Hello, I'm working on the design for a card game. We're trying to decide on border style.

• We want to know if different color borders will show on the card edges when the cards are face down in a draw deck.

• We also want to know what experience people have had with the thickness of borders on their cards, and if they have to be as (ridiculously) thick as what the templates suggest.

Any help is much appreciated!

Yes, the different colors are visible and can even be diferentiated. In my first prototype, with cards of 6 different colors and 1 with a different design, I could locate this card by just looking at the draw deck. Oh well, that's what prototyping is for. I changed the design to avoid this.

About the borders, I can't tell because the cards I ordered didn't have thin borders. I'll be able to see them with my next deck. Anyway, I think the key is prototyping.
