Materials
310gsm Heretic
Our playing card material is made up of 2 pieces of board that is laminated together using an opaque glue. This ensures that the board is more durable & has no possibility of show through. This material is great for Poker & Bridge style card games.
310gsm Sureslip
A step up from our 310gsm Heretic. Sureslip is a textured version that is perfect for magicians or magic tricks. It is also an amazing upgrade to make your pack stand out and appeal more to customers who love texture.
330gsm Sym Art
A more economical alternative to 350gsm Zanta Games, this is a thick card stock that is great for larger sized cards! If you're looking for a full-bleed design (no borders), then we highly recommend this one.
350gsm Zanta Games
A thicker card stock that is great for larger sized cards and Tarot & Oracle cards! This is a stiff card stock that is most commonly used for bordered card designs.
400gsm Calder Satin
Our newest card material! Perfect for larger cards where you're looking for a more premium quality. A great material for full bleed designs since it has a reduced chance of chipping.
270um Aramac 100% Plastic
Our Aramac materia l is made from 100% plastic and is great for writing on with a whiteboard pen. A very durable and flexible material, great if yourpack is going to be handled on a very regular basis. Please note that this material is not opaque and that it comes with restrictions at the artwork stage of a plain white border around your artwork. This ensures that the plastic sticks well and doesn't chip.

Step 5
Artwork Tier Levels

If you need some help with setting up your artwork then our in-house design studio is here for you. We offer 5 different Tier levels of artwork help so that you can bring your pack to life.

Tier 1 is our standard artwork level where you supply the artwork yourself which is also fitted to our templates. This requires no help or alterations from our Studio, apart from general checks during digital proofing.

Tier 2 includes help making your artwork Print-Ready for our Production Team. This is a great help is you're looking to add extras like Metallic ink or foiling but you're unsure how to set this up on your files. Our in-house designers will contact you about what assistance you need and they'll consult you every step of the way. To ensure you're happy with all the artwork before printing, we'll also send over digital proofs of every component.

Tier 3 is known as our full artwork setup. We request any content (text or images etc) that you'd like on your cards to be sent over to us and some examples of how you'd like them to be presented. Before we make up all of your components, we'll send over an example of each item so that you can see how your artwork will look. Once approved, we will make up every single component in your order accordingly and then send over digital proofs as final confirmation that you're happy to proceed to print.

Tier 4 includes a 1-on-1 session with one of our graphic designers to dicuss your pack. We can create bespoke graphics and illustrations according to your ideas and we'll also set up your artwork so that it is Print-Ready. All content (text) will still need to be supplied by you, but we will set this up on the artwork accordingly.

Tier 5 is a step up from our Tier 4 service, but we also offer the addition of Game Concept Testing. We'll discuss your game concept with you and then test it ourselves to make sure that your pack works exactly how you expect it to. A great and simple way for you to get your pack market ready.
