Disclaimer: These files contain every spell available in the D&D 5th Edition SRD, and are published under the Open Gaming License. The SRD only allows spells from the Players Handbook. If you want spell cards for non-SRD spells or custom content, use the form-fillable Custom document.

Updates

1. A single PDF contains every spell

2. Spells archived individually so you can only print the ones you need (printing instructions below)

PRINTING INSTRUCTIONS

a. Combine desired spells into a single document with an online PDF combiner.

b. Open combined PDF in Acrobat Reader.

c. In the print menu, select Multiple under Page Sizing & Handling

d. Select 4 by 2 pages per sheet and landscape orientation

3. Non-SRD and custom spells can be added in form-fillable PDFs

4. Banner colours represent spell level rather than class

5. Each card lists every usable class

6. Components now indicate when materials are consumed


This project has a few hundred hours invested — mostly in time spent learning and correcting mistakes. If you choose to pay $0 for the cards, that's totally okay, but if you get any use out of my work, I hope you'll consider revisiting and tipping a few dollars for the labor, or  take a look at my monster cards or character sheets.

Hi there

Love the cards. I also use the monster cards, print them out on normal paper and laminate them so I can add temporary notes if necessary.

One comment about the spell cards, they do not have the thick black border around them. The thick border on the monster cards means that when cutting them out for lamination I don't have to be exact (the inside of the border provides a nice square and straight edge to the cards, even if my scissor-work is dodgy). Adding a thicker border to the spell cards would make them much more "lamination-friendly", and not detract from the great design at all.

Just a thought for a future release.

Thanks
Mark

I love the cards that work, but when I try to print custom cards it prints the first one and the rest are blank. We have tried Chrome, Adobe, IE, Drive, printing to pdf first, and multiple devices. What am I missing?
ETA- I see people are troubled by font size. I worked around it by making multiple cards for a single spell. EG, Ceremony has parts 1, 2, and 3.

Hey Michele! I'm making an animated gif now to show how I print custom cards — hopefully it will clear things up. Shouldn't be too long :)

Yes, that's the procedure we're using but we still only get the first card and the rest print blank even though they appear correct. We ended up printing one per sheet. Maybe we'll have better luck when I level up. :)

Well that is some serious PDF poltergeist stuff. If you ever work out what the issue is (or if anyone else can duplicate the problem) please let me know!

Hey I really enjoy your set. Though I got a big problem with the fillable spell card forms.
The text in the text boxes just doesn't resize with the amount of text.
I never can fit the material components or a bigger text inside of these.
I really love the design and would want to continue working with them.
Is there any chance you could make the text responsive?

Hey Dustin! I've just added some blank versions with smaller text which should help a little bit.

Nice cards, but i think you missed Blade Ward. And, I'm also wondering if the images should still appear on the form fill able if they are not selected. Ie black outline boxes. Material component image?

Cheers Allen! I couldn't work out how to get the component images to appear/disappear depending on the checkbox. So it's as designed, I'm afraid. Those spells you mentioned aren't listed on the 5E System Reference Document, so I'm not allowed to publish cards for those unfortunately.

There's a fella named Paul Webber DM who has a big Facebook community for making cards like that. They're not blank, but they might have a template you can use.

Hello Matthew,
I love these cards, but as a DM with german players I can't use these unfortunately. Would it be possible to translate the classes and spell component parts? In german these would be:

[Barbarian > Barbar] [Bard > Barde] [Cleric > Kleriker] [Druid > Druide] [Fighter > Kämpfer] [Monk > Mönch] [Paladin = Paladin] [Ranger > Waldläufer] [Sorcerer > Zauberer] [Warlock > Hexenmeister] [Wizard > Magier]

Spell components would be:

[Verbal = Verbal] [Somatic > Gesten] [Material = Material]

Yep! DM me a contact email address and I'll send you a form-fillable pdf with German text, though you'll still have to write in your own content.

So my only issues is the description box. Needs to have it editable where we can change the font sizes etc... trying to do booming blade and can't fit it all in there due to font size.

Hi Matt,
The cards are amazing, well worth the price I was just having a problem when making my own spells. I have been unable to save these spells, when opened all changes are lost. I used both the download and save as functions, is there something I'm missing?

Updated thoughts- Still marvelous.
Best ones I've found.

Only thing I would add is an page with an image to print on the back side of the cards.

M~
Downloaded your Spell Cards to see if they were worth deploying in my new campaign.

Immediately came back and bought everything you have at double your asking price (well, not your dice cheat sheet, but I didn't download it for free either, so I feel like we are even on that one).

I appreciate your effort and your attention to detail. Well done indeed. Let me close by putting my mouth where my money is... make Equipment Cards that match the set and I'll buy them too.

tnx, man.

Hi Matthew, these are so excellent! My only question is if it's possible to make the description box a rich text box? For bolding, italics, etc.

Hey Ahsan! So in the .rar file, there are a bunch of PDFs starting with an exclamation mark, like !LEVEL 1 or !LEVEL 5. Each of these are blank, form-fillable versions of the cards at each spell level.

Hey Mark! I'm not allowed to publish spells outside the System Reference Document, The SRD is comprised of bunch of content from the PHB, MM and DMG only. If the SRD is ever expanded, however, I'll update my spell and monster cards.

Several spells from the PHB are missing, but these cards are still a great asset. Just take the time to use the blank versions to create the missing spells you need.

I take it since I purchased the cards, they've undergone some kind of revision that has made them less useful and not what I originally purchased which were super awesome. is there a way to get an earlier edition, as the ones now in my library are not fit for purpose.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
