Printing and Putting Together Your Own Deck
Download your chosen tarot deck in PDF format below.
For best results, print onto card stock. If you want to, you can also laminate them for durability.
I personally prefer using just a good quality card stock rather than laminated card as I prefer the matte texture, but it’s up to you.
The full set of printable tarot cards comes as a 10 page file with 8 cards per page, giving you cards the size of average play cards.
The reverse side is blank, if you don’t want the plain white color there you can add a patterned card stock or scrapbook paper on the reverse side, which will also add extra thickness.
You will need to cut the cards apart, carefully to avoid sharp edges. For a perfect straight cut you can use a guillotine cutting tool, or cricut cutting machine. And, once you have your 78 tarot cards cut out, you can lightly sand the edges if you feel like they need it, using a nail file.

If you prefer, download the Rider Waite tarot deck. This deck is what you might consider “regular tarot cards.” It is the original deck of tarot cards, in the format that we use today and this deck is now in the public domain.
The Rider Waite deck was created in 1909 by Arthur Edward Waite with illustrator Pamela Colman Smith. A. E. Waite was a British poet and mystic, and although he created this original deck, tarot cards in one format or another have been around much longer. You can find out more about the history of tarot, and read about tarot myths debunked here.
This is the most popular tarot deck that you see everywhere, and many other tarot decks have illustrations which took inspiration from this deck, so the cultural significance of this particular deck is huge.
You can get a copy of these cards as a printable version in the PDF download below.
Color Your Own Tarot
If you want to make your own tarot cards using your own colors and designs, we have a set of tarot coloring pages that you can use to create some of your own designs, rather than using the ready-coloured set.
This is also a free download. Go download our tarot coloring pages here and make a new tarot deck that is uniquely your own.
Note: The tarot coloring page pack only has the major Arcana cards included. So, use these as a starting point and to complete the full deck you’ll need to either combine with one of our other such printable tarot decks above (the Rider Waite or the modern deck) or use blank tarot cards and fill in all of the cards of the 4 suites of the minor arcana.

Need some help interpreting the meanings of each card, you can check out our guide to the meanings of all 78 cards of the tarot deck with some further information to help you on your way to read tarot.
Anyone can read tarot. It may take some time and practise to build a deep connection to the cards and develop your own understanding but tarot is for everyone who would like to try.
