Frequently Asked Questions
How long will I have access to the course?
After enrolling in this course, you’ll have lifetime access to all modules. If you choose a payment plan, you’ll be responsible for completing all payments on time—otherwise your course access will be revoked.
Do I need any previous design experience to be able to benefit from this course?
Some basic design experience (e.g. using a tool like Canva) will help you get comfortable with Photoshop faster, but isn’t absolutely necessary. You’ll receive all the tools and instructions you need so you can design beautiful layouts for your cards from scratch.
How techy do I need to be able to benefit from this course?
If you don’t consider yourself to be very tech savvy, getting familiar with Photoshop can be a bit of a learning curve. It definitely helps to have a good eye for design as well! However, even if you don’t plan on doing all the design work yourself, you’ll find a lot of general information in this course that will help you manage your project with much more ease. The process explained in this course is based on nearly 10 years’ worth of research and experience, so even if you’re going to hire someone to do part of the work for you, what you’ll learn here will save you time and ensure a smoother unfolding of your project since you won’t need to figure out all the details on your own.
Do I need to use Photoshop for this course, or does another graphic design program work, too?
To get the most out of this course, I highly recommend using Photoshop. You can use an alternative tool such as Canva if you like. But many of the more advanced tools explained in this course won’t be available to you unless you work in Photoshop. (You can get a free trial for 7 days, after that you’ll pay a small monthly fee of $9.99 to keep using Photoshop.)
I have an old computer. Will it be fast enough to run Photoshop?
If your computer is a bit older, check the details here to find out if it meets the minimum system requirements. Before installing Photoshop, make sure your computer has enough disk space, RAM, and a fast enough processor.
What software will I need to design my booklets?
This depends on the type of booklet and the specific templates provided by your printing company. In the tutorials, we’ll be working with Affinity Publisher, which is similar to Adobe InDesign, but more affordable and easier to use for beginners. (You can get a free trial for the first 90 days.) In many cases, using a traditional word processing application such as iWorks Pages or Microsoft Word can work as well.
How much can I expect to invest in my oracle deck in addition to this course?
The short answer is: It depends! If you’re planning on designing the entire deck yourself and/or using free or low-cost artwork, you can get started with a very small budget. Depending on your business goals and the foundation you already have in place, it may make more sense to go bigger right away and outsource some parts of your creative process. In this course, you’ll learn about different ways of sourcing artwork, getting your cards printed, publishing and selling your deck, and so on, suitable for different budgets.
Will this course work for me if I live outside of the US or Canada?
Your location doesn’t really matter. The printing companies I recommend in this course deliver to countries all over the world. The course also explains how to find your country’s ISBN agency as well as distribution options that will work for your location. To find the correct version of Adobe Photoshop for your region and in your language, visit the region selector here.
Can I benefit from this course even if I don’t want to design my own graphics?
Yes, absolutely! While a large portion of this course is focused on designing your card deck, understanding the complete process of creating and publishing a deck can also benefit you if you’re thinking about hiring a professional designer for your project.
What is your refund policy?
If you find that this course isn’t the right fit for you once you’ve signed up, contact us within 7 days of your purchase to receive a full refund. Refunds are only available if you have actually started working on the course modules and have completed at least the first four lessons.
