I want to get something straight right away: it really doesn’t matter how you store your tarot cards. The cards are just paper, and they won’t get mad if you decide to keep them tied with rubber bands in a stack on the floor. You don’t need to spend any money on extra accessories or do anything fancy to store your cards.
That said, it’s really fun to come up with personalized storage for your deck collection. Pampering your decks can make taking them out to do a reading feel a little more special.
You could store your decks any number of ways - in boxes, in a desk or bureau drawer, stacked on a bookshelf, or out on display. You can keep them in their original packaging, place them in bags, wrap them in cloth, or tie them up with ribbons. You can store them by themselves or add crystals, trinkets, or memorabilia.
When I first started getting into tarot, the prevailing wisdom was to keep your tarot cards in velvet bags, preferably black. (Oh the ‘90s . . .) That was never quite my style. Now the trend is to wrap your decks in silk scarves, a look I’ve always loved.
