How to Make A Quality Deck of Playing Cards

The tuck box is important because it serves your cards and is hard enough to hold your card deck. It would help if you had something that can open and close easily, to store the cards. Chensheng in choice of material, usually uses 250/ 300g C1S art paper for high-quality decks, which were selected and multiple tested, durable, and functional so that you can rest assured.

Art and design:

The tuck box is our first impression of a deck, which also gives new potential for artistic creativity because it means that in addition to the cards themselves. Our creator has an additional canvas to work with, namely the tuck box itself. 

Chensheng’s printer will pay more attention to color in the file. Printing in Pantone color will be more accurate, but the CMYK, the color of the fusion will be the most perfect color for your reference in the debugging of our printer. This will often include not only the front, back, and sides, but even the insides of the box and card! Full interior printing is certainly something to look out for, and high-end decks will usually feature printing on both the outside and inside of the box. 300gsm and 250gsm, In these materials, Our printer usually prints on a smoother surface, and the brightly colored design will stand out more.

Metallic Inks

Customizing the card deck, the design of the back will be similar to a tuck box, Some decks will employ metallic inks on the card backs, and this immediately produces a very striking and stylish look, with a sheen that becomes obvious when the cards catch the light at certain angles.

Card back

Borders: White borders are the most common, whatever your white or color border, we need to be careful in the selection of material for white or color frames. Since playing cards are made out of paper, cards with black borders or black faces tend to show signs of wear and chipping as the cards are used with any frequency. White-bordered cards are worn in the same way. Chensheng has strict standards in the selection of materials, following gambling standards, Chensheng 310g German black core paper can solve your concerns. Chensheng can provide an auto paper-cutting machine that can lock the edges so that our cards will be more accurate.

Borderless: In different fields, Chensheng is striving for excellence in craftsmanship and detail.  Some decks feature card backs without borders. These kinds of card backs tend to look fantastic for card flourishing moves like fans and spread, and cardistry decks will often take good advantage of this.  Magicians however tend to prefer cards with borders, because cards reversed in a deck are far more noticeable when the cards are borderless, making certain sleight-of-hand moves far more difficult to execute. It all depends on what you’re using your deck for as to whether or not borderless cards are something that suits your needs – they certainly can add an instant aesthetic appeal.

Embossing: With the help of modern technology, we are seeing tuck boxes today reaching new heights of innovation. A good quality deck of playing cards is almost certain to have embossing on the tuck box. This is where part of the lettering or image is raised against the background, to create a visual element of depth, simultaneously adding a tactile feel.

Foil: Some decks have metallic foil hot stamped on the back. This looks super luxurious and impressive but comes with two disadvantages. Firstly, the shape of the hot stamped foil can sometimes carry through and be visible on the front of the card. Secondly, foil tends to be more slippery, and this will often impact the handling of the cards. But it does add a great deal of instant bling to a deck, and foil backs look super impressive!
