Whether as a business and marketing tool or for retail, we print the finest custom-made professional playing cards in the industry

The first known playing cards originated in Europe during the fourteenth century as hand-painted collectables; playthings for the rich. They’ve since become ubiquitous and been adapted for many uses from classic card games such as poker and whist to magic tricks and tools for business promotion. At QinPrinting, we can print the now standard deck of 52 cards (or 54 if you include a pair of promotional cards) with each card being 2.5″ x 3.5″ in size, packaged in the traditional tuck-end card box. But we specialize in printing custom-made decks according to your individual and unique designs. This is a popular choice for magic trick manufacturers, an unusual corporate gift, or as a direct-to-market retail option.

Quantity
We are an offset printer, rather than a digital or print-on-demand service, so we must impose a minimum order quantity (MOQ). We’ve set ours as low as possible, at 100 units. But with offset printing, the higher the quantity you order in a single print run, the lower the cost-per-unit.
Size
Choose preset dimensions from the dropdown menu or click “CUSTOM SIZE” to enter your own custom dimensions.
Please use the format, width x height; so, 2.5" x 4.5" would mean 2.5" wide and 4.5" high.

If your book has heavier interior paper or the page count exceeds 200 pages, sewn perfect binding will be your best choice.

Our minimum order quantity (MOQ) is 100 units. But you may find that the most economical option is to order a run of 1,000 units or more. If you choose an unusual card size for which we must make a unique mold, we’ll add fees for the mold making and an added set-up fee for the offset plates. If you choose standard sizes, there are no extra fees.

Custom Playing Card Materials

We use a high-quality card to make our playing cards. Black core is the most popular and useful as it stops light passing through the cards, making it easier for players to hide their hand, especially important in poker, for example, where secrecy and bluffing are essential aspects of play. These are the most common paper types we use for playing cards:

  • 310 gsm / 114 lb black core paper
  • 300 gsm / 110 lb gloss or matte art paper
  • 350 gsm / 129 lb gloss art paper

Custom Playing Card Sizes

The standard size for traditional playing cards is 2.5″ x 3.5″ and is always the most popular. It’s also the most economical as we have the die-cutting molds for this size of card always in stock, so there’s no need to pay an added mold-making fee. However, if you want unusual sizes, we can make them for you. For example, if you’re making magic decks and need a jumbo size for a particular effect, or a tiny deck that can go on a keyring as a promotion tool for your business. The number of cards in a standard deck is 52, sometime with a couple of promotional cards added to bring the number up to 54.

Playing Card Surface Finishes

Playing cards get a lot of use. For that reason, we always recommend that they are finished with varnish on both sides. We will usually round off the corners, too.

Playing Card Packaging and Accessories

To prepare to ship your finished playing cards, we’ll package them in the tuck-end box of your choice before shrink-wrapping the package. We have a range of shipping options including land, air, and sea.
