Wow! Those came out really nice. How did you make each sticker?

I would have made the 4 suites and two different jokers.

That was my first plan, but after looking in the database I decided to just pick a card, any card. I like the queen of spades because of the game spades, and the king of clubs was easier to do than any other one. I can always redo it!

I really like how my camera blurred the background but made the cube nice and focused. I just figured out how to do this today when I wasn't satisfied with the shots it took.

Those look awesome! Your stickers really look professionaly made. Do you have a plotter? Can't you open a custom sticker/logo shop? I'd love to have center stickers like these.

My guess would be the magnifying glass setting?

If that's the same as macro mode, then that's my guess, too. But I didn't ask me, I asked him, as he's the only one who can answer it, and me guessing would be useless speculation.

Yes, I believe it's similar. Mine has a macro mode, and then switches to magnifying glass if the object is really small.

It is the Digital Macro setting on my camera, so you are correct. I've never really used this feature on my camera until now, so I didn't really know what it did. I can make custom logos with my plotter, but it will be a two-part sticker. I have no idea how to print the logo, but I could somewhat easily just make one sticker of white and another of black and make a logo sticker. I did this for my big cube a while back to get a rubik's logo on it.

It's a "digital" macro setting? Are you sure?

Edit: Ok, I checked it. They really call it that (you do have a Canon PowerShot SD630, right?). Although, according to this review it seems to be like the usual "digital zoom" fake:

A "digital macro" feature (in the shooting mode menu) lets you take close-ups at the wide end of the lens using the digital zoom -- you're probably better just cropping the image in Photoshop, though.

Yes I do have a powershot, and I think it works pretty good for this kind of usage. I just took some other pictures of some other cubes that I'm going to sell shortly, and they were nice and sharp. It's a nice all around camera in my opinion. I'm not saying that it's the best by any means, but it is a nice camera for people who take pictures every so often.
