- STANDARD OPTIONS: Tarotista offers the following standard sizing options.
• "Standard A" Case for 2 3/4" x 4 3/4" x 1" (70 x 120 x 25mm) deck. Most Rider-Waite [aka Waite-Smith] decks will fit this case, as well as many U.S. Games tarot decks. It is the most common size of deck.
• "Standard B" Case for 2 5/8" x 4 3/4" x 1" (66 x 120 x 25mm) deck. Most Lo Scarabeo decks and many Tarots de Marseille (Camoin-Jodorowsky and CBD, for examples) will fit this case.
• "Standard B" Case for 2 5/8" x 4 3/4" x 1" (66 x 120 x 25mm) deck WITH DIVIDER. Do you like to keep your Majors separate? This case has an internal silk divider, creating two smooth-sided and elegant partitions for separated Majors and Minors.

- CUSTOM SIZING: I can construct an Arcana Case to most sizes of deck. If you would like an Arcana Case in a non-standard size, select the "Custom Size" option above. Then convo me with the EXACT height, width, and depth of your deck, measured to within 1/16" or 1mm. (I cannot issue refunds on custom cases, so please DOUBLE- and TRIPLE-check your measurements!)

- CUSTOM LINING: Arcana Cases come with natural white silk lining. But for a nominal upcharge you can choose a contrasting lining in one of 20 vivid colors! Simply select the "custom lining" option for the appropriate size in the drop-down menu, and add a note with your order to let me know what you chose.

Lining choices:
A. Champagne gloss
B. Butter gloss
C. Goldenrod matte
D. Bubble rose gloss
E. Coral dupioni

THE STORY OF THE ARCANA CASE

As a longtime tarot reader, I've hunted for the ideal tarot receptacle for years - elegant, clean-cut, portable. I wanted clean lines, without drawstrings or ties or belts. I didn't want an open sack that could spill out its precious contents in my purse. I didn't want a bulky box whose corners could get crunched and broken and jostled. Nothing was quite right - so I designed one.

The Arcana Case is a lined and highly structured yet resilient cloth case.
It closes like a cigarette box or clamshell, and when closed the case is close-fitting enough that it will not open on its own. Top-stitching, internal interfacing, and a removable cardboard insert help to maintain the boxlike structure, so that if your Arcana Case should happen to be flattened or crushed the shape can easily be restored by quickly ironing the creases.

If you wish, you can remove the cardboard insert, which sits in an opening between the lining and cover, in the front panel of the case. The opening also serves as a convenient place to stow your Card of the Day - or any other individual card you wish to set apart for contemplation or study.

DO YOU SEW? If you're an experienced sewist, you can buy the pattern instead of the case. See "The Arcana Case Pattern'" listing in the Tarotista shop. You can download it right now!

SHIPPING

I use USPS First Class Mail for most packages. It's generally reliable and very affordable, and I highly recommend it for shipments within the US. Priority Mail is also an option - its main advantage domestically is slightly better tracking.

For international packages, I use First Class International. It is amazingly affordable (less than $10 for shipping almost anywhere in the world), and at its best it's just as fast as Priority Mail. But it does not offer reliable tracking once the package leaves the US. Every once in a while a package will take a *very* long time to reach its destination - 6 to 8 weeks. But none in my experience has ever been lost.

The alternative for international shipping is Priority Mail International. I use the small flat rate box, which is the most economical of the Priority Mail International services. It generally takes no more than two weeks and can usually be tracked all the way to its destination.

Please note that some countries will add Customs or VAT tax; unfortunately, I have no control over this.
