What are CE & UKCA marks? And why are they important?

CE UKCA

If you plan to mass-produce and sell your card game, then you'll need to include CE & UKCA marks. Governing bodies made it a legal requirement for sellers to include CE (for Europe) and UKCA (for UK). This shows that your product has passed the UK's / Europe's conformity assessment and is safe for use & selling.

If you don't include a CE and or UKCA mark when selling your product, you are selling your products illegally and could be liable for a fine or even in extreme cases jail time.

But, don't worry, we're here to help! So, that you can relax and just focus on your product getting funded. We'll send off your playing card deck off for testing and approval. Once approved, you'll receive a declaration of conformity & be allowed to place your CE & UKCA mark onto your packs.
