52 Standard American Card Faces by Chris Wasshuber

You will receive 52 vector graphic files in SVG and EPS (encapsulated post script) format. Each file holds the design of a face of a card from a standard deck of cards. These faces are for example used in Bicycle cards from USPCC, but can be found in many other brands and non-brand decks. All cards from Ace to King in all four colors, Hearts, Diamonds, Clubs, Spades are represented. There are no jokers and no backs included.

Each card is a vector graphic and can therefore be altered and modified in any way you like without loss of quality. You will need a vector graphic tool like the free Inkscape or quite expensive Adobe Illustrator to modify these files, combine them, export to other formats and print them out.

Each file has the card itself plus cut marks and boundary, which can easily be deleted should you not need them.

Starting from these designs it is very easy to prepare split face gaff cards, or exchange an index of a card with an index of another card. And that is merely the very beginning of what you can do with these designs.

[Note that these vector designs have been created through a trace and edit process. While a lot of care and attention went into creating these there are small imperfections that can be seen at large magnification. These imperfections are unnoticeable if printed at standard card sizes. However, since these are vector designs it is very easy to change anything you want to further smooth or sharpen up if required for your design project.]

An excellent source for clean card face designs to use for constructing gaffed cards. I've been a full-time pro for several decades. I have a lot of experience in close-up/corporate magic and have often constructed gaffed cards using a scanner and a printer. These prepared card faces take a lot of the hard work out of the process for you.

The images are in .eps (encapsulated postscript) form and .svg (scalable vector graphics) form.

Thank you so much!! Looking at the files now, and I'm blown away. Seriously. No idea how these were made with so much detail, but clearly a TON of time went into this, unbelievable work. I can't even put into words how impressed I am. Thank you!
