More Counterfeit Decks

Posted by Patrick Valenza on

Well, we are starting to see counterfeit Trionfi Full Spectrum decks popping up here and there. Definitely makes us rethink our next projects. We had the Tarot of Black Enchantment and the Fenwood Oracle planned for this year, but have decided to hold them back at the moment. No use releasing something only to have these criminals steal it out from under you. This is an industry wide problem.

Counterfeit Decks

Posted by Patrick Valenza on

So we finally got one of the counterfeit Trionfi Della Luna decks in our hands today. In comparing these rip offs from China to the authentic deck, we can see the fakes are much smaller and of low quality. The colors are muddy and muted and the deck gives off a definite toxic smell that left us with a headache. This problem is beyond rampant in the tarot industry and many well known artists like myself have considered not making any more decks in the future. Why would anyone if they knew these vultures were waiting for the release to...
