Write a data mining program to collect the information.  Make sure you coordinate with I'bles Staff before running it, if you don't want to be permanently banned for crashing the servers.

Adobe Illustrator or some other layout program, as discussed in Step 3.  If you don't know how to do graphic design, pay a professional. 

A high quality printer that can handle card stock. If you don't have one, go to Kinko's and spend more money.  A high quality cutter to cut the stock into individual cards.  If you don't have one, read this paragraph again.

Or, you could support the UK Instructables and Maker community.

AND if you buy some once we've sold 100 we will run the script again and make a pdf including cards for all those that bought a pack so you can print off one of yourself to add to your printed deck. Thanks for asking the question, shows people like it :) Gmjhowe did and awesome job on the artwork.

You buy a set here.

Or

Wait till they sell 1000 sets, then they are going to post a pdf so you can make your own.
