Instructions for printing your own deck

Here are instructions for printing and ordering your own deck. Note however that you have to upload each image and this could take about 45 minutes. We are investing ways to make it easier to buy one or multiple decks.

The Notable Women in Computer Science card deck is designed to help women working in the field and those who support them identify those who've gone before them. We want it to spread far and wide, which is why we are releasing everything you need to print one of your own and licensing the entire project under Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 U.S. License

This will take about 30 - 45 minutes. First, download the files of the cards

We found the cheapest way to get a custom deck of playing cards is makeplayingcards.com --it's about $13 + shipping for one pack. Once there, search for "Classic Custom Front and Back Playing Cards," select the option with that name, then select "Linen," and "White window tuck box." Then upload all 55 image files (52 cards, 2 jokers, and 1 image for their backs).

You'll notice each of the files has a name that indicates what number and suit it goes with. For example, Manuela Veloso is the 6 of Hearts and her card is titled: "Notable Women in CS_H6.jpg" Within the makeplayingcards.com interface, you will drag each card to its respective number and suit. We've included some fun patterns for you, like all of the ENIAC women are deuces and 3s. When you're done dragging them, then you click Next Step.

You can ignore the options about a message on the card, and click Next Step. Here you will upload the image for the back, named "Notable Women in CS_Back.jpg" Again, you can ignore the options about a message on the card and click Next Step.

In the Preview stage, you can double check your cards against our list of who we've assigned for each suit and number. Then click the button saying "Yes, the images, names, dates and other information applied onto the cards are correct and I own all copyrights of them or have authorization to use them," since we used images licensed under Creative Commons, in the public domain, or that we received explicit permission for them. We also explain that here.

Click Add to Cart and then check-out. One deck should cost $12.70 + $5.99 for standard shipping and less if you buy more than 5.

Finally, let us know how you use it! If you have a Ladies Who Tech poker night, send us a picture at @katy_dickinson or @JessiDG. We'd love to see this in the wild. Back to main page
