This is highest quality blank playing card cardboard that has the same air-cushion dimples in its surface as the USPCC (United States Playing Card Company) use for their famous Bicycle brand. This cardboard has the same thickness, snap, look and feel as the cardboard used for Bicycle cards. We don't have proof but it is highly likely that USPCC buys its paper at the same supplier we do. This type of embossed surface is used for many other casino quality cards, too.
We are the only retailer in the world that is offering this type of cardboard in small quantities. It is the perfect material to print your own gaffed cards, marked cards, or branded cards. Now even the individual magician or designer can print his own deck of cards, create his own unique gaffed cards or marked cards to create one-of-a-kind professionally looking effects.
The size of each sheet is A4 (210 mm x 297 mm) - a tiny bit longer and narrower than the US letter size format. But it perfectly fits into any desktop printer. You can fit 9 cards in a 3 x 3 pattern on one sheet. It is best to use our card cutter to cut out these 9 cards accurately and effortlessly. Alternatively you can use a 2 x 4 pattern to print 8 cards with the paper in landscape orientation. You will receive 20 sheets.
These sheets are uncoated and can be printed on either by laser jet or inkjet printer. Not all printers work equally well. The cardboard is roughly 350gsm. Make sure your printer is able to handle this thickness. We recommend laser jet, but for details on how you can best print your own cards please refer to our article "How To Make Your Own Playing Cards".
