Marking System Design

Want to have a "secret marking system" designed for a deck YOU'RE creating?

Well you've found the right guy for the job.

I consider myself a card marking expert and others can vouch for that. I have a keen eye for seeing almost immediately where and how a marking system can be designed for nearly any playing card, regardless of the back pattern or image. I have developed and continue to design marking systems for my own decks as well as for others.



(unless otherwise negotiated)

ToS (Terms of Service)

1. Payment must be made up front, unless other arrangements are made, prior to work commencing.

2. You agree to indicate somewhere on the deck, however big or small: 'Marking system developed and designed by Bill Davis Magic'. (It could just be on the bottom of the tuck with the ad copy and/or on a card explaining how the system works, whatever you choose.)

That's all!

I'd definitely appreciate it if you'd give a short credit and/or link to me when you advertise it, such as 'Marking system developed and designed by Bill Davis Magic, creator of the Wild Reserve: Pink Boar deck!', but that is completely optional.
