Any ideas where I can find it, folks? Checked all the crafts stores...and they don't have it in 10pt. White Helvetica...which seems to be the font of choice.

Your help, as always, is much appreciated.
Cheers,
Steve

I tried several art supply stores in my area and it kind of sounds like the demand for them has dried up. Mostly due to what can now be done with computers (according to them). They did say, however, that they could order them. You may want to look into that.

Otherwise, here's a site that may work -

Or try Ted Lesley's orginal system (same font and size) at his web site at

I have never heard of lettering the deck. Could someone please briefly explain it to me and everyone else who has been under a rock for awhile?

You get a supply when you buy the system I believe. Maybe with the tapes and routines.

Lesterkirad, you have not been under a rock. It is a system which is marketed, Boris Wild's variation/improvement on a Lesley idea. Check out the Boris Wild videos for all you need to know on this. As a marketed idea, it shouldn't really be explained here.

P.s. The FA-KO stuff can be used when working for the blind.
Many of my titles are now available as e-books from www.lybrary.com

The BW deck can be found here
Hank Lee
currently $37 including spare marking sheets. The sheets on their own don't seem to be listed in Hanks supplies section so you might need to email him.

Folks:
I've found four sites that will supply the numbering needed...

1) Boris recommends Camirand Academy at
http://www.camirandmagic.com.
Each sheet goes for $10, plus $1.50 surface S&H. (Does that mean you get green stamps?)

2) Ted Lesley's site
http://www.wonderworkshop.de
offers the sheets for $13 each. But you must have a minimum order of $50.

3) Finally, Taws Graphic Supplies in Philadelphia, (215) 563-8742, will special order the sheets for you. They're about $12 each, plus S&H.

In addition, Houdini's will sell you a couple of cut down sheets for $5. Enough for a deck or two.

DECAdry, the brand Boris uses, is not available in this country.

And, BTW, expect to make a couple of errors when using the sheets. That's always been a problem with transfer type. So buy more than you need.
Cheers,
Steve
