I think I would definitely prefer the borderless Zerner Farber, with its bright colors, to the Enchanted, even though the latter is larger and printed on firmer cardstock. I find the colors on the Enchanted too pale, and don't like the orange borders on the Wands suit, which seem to wash out the cards.

I definitely like the Zerner-Farber much better than the Enchanted. I felt the Enchanted was awkward to handle and not nearly as pretty with white borders.

i have the Enchanted [i wonder where i got it from?] and i am thinking about giving it a trim. My main complaint about the Zerner-Farber is the card stock. i think a trimmed Enchanted will be much sturdier than the Z-F. i also like the Enchanted backs better than the Z-F.

I think it's a nice enough deck, but a little too busy. I never read with it anymore.

That is the reason I gave my 2 copies away.

That's why I trimmed mine. You have no idea how BETTER it looks without the white borders. ANd much easier to shuffle!

I never had the Zerner-Farber, so I can't tell if I'd like it better than the Enchanted...

I did an IDS with the deck. I like the books and CD better than the cards themselves. I find the cards kind of muddy to look at. I do like the card stock and size, though.

I've never bought the smaller version because the smaller version doesn't have the same ratio height/lenght than the Enchanted, it's smaller in length, so the images are a bit compressed.

That's a good way of putting it! Yes, good advice and honest but this deck isn't going to be in your face about it. Relationship or day heading south? The deck will tell you but let you down easy!

It was really nice about this one work day (I didn't know if I would get called in), and said that yes I would have work because one of the male teachers would have an injury of some sort that prevented him from coming in.
Even the "bad" cards are so pretty, its like Ooooo, thats nice. Lol.

I didn't know that either until someone was looking for a copy in the trading threads and it was like what?! there's a bigger version?
I have the Enchanted now and I love it but it is harder to handle than the Zerner-Faber if you're like me and have small hands. Cardstock is thicker too, so I can't riffle. I have to spread them out and swirl them around.

The guy from Tarot Oracle reviews the deck here:

He says 'It looks like a stained glass window puked up a tarot deck.' Which made me laugh.
