Where to buy blank cards?

Hello friends,

Quick question: where do you all buy additional blank cards?  I remember seeing sets of ten (with a randomizer) on BGG's store for a few dollars a set, but I can't seem to find them there anymore...did BGG stop selling them?  Any other good places to buy sets of blank cards?  I do have some that came with several of the expansions I already, but would love to get some more.  I'm in the US, in case it matters. 

Thanks!

I'm not sure what you want the blank cards for, but if sleeve your cards and you want the blanks to proxy up fan cards, you're better off buying a copy of Dominion: Base Cards. Then you can use them (or your old Treasure/Victory/Curse cards if you have the old ones without art) as proxies. It's way cheaper than buying sets of 10 blanks on BGG (if they even sell them anymore). You won't get blue-backed cards this way, but that's really the only downside.

EDIT: The reason I suggest this is because it gives you the most cards for your dollars. It has 250 cards and costs $19 on Amazon. You might be able to find it cheaper elsewhere.

I've made my own blanks by de-inking base cards. Its kind of time consuming but its a lot cheaper than buying them for $3 a pack or whatever they were.

I was thinking the same thing. If you really want to be cost-effective, get Dark Ages. It gives you the best value for money of any set.

Dark Ages is 500 cards for $~45, vs 250 cards for ~$18 with the Base Cards box. It isn't super close, Base Cards are the Best Buy here.
