Personalised Playing Cards

Customised full colour playing cards

Details at a glance

A superb giveaway. Playing cards are an excellent gift because you can brand both the card backs and the boxes if you choose, and they have a very high perceived value to make sure your recipients keep and use them.

Poker standard size and material. We use 300gsm Solar Block card for our playing cards which has a metallic core to prevent any possibility of show-through. Our cards are standard poker size 3½ x 2½ inches (89 x 63mm).

Personalisation. We supply cards as sets of 54 in plain red boxes, but you can optionally specify full customised boxes with a choice of laminated finishes for the ultimate presentation. You can even customise both sides of your playing cards; see below for details.
