Thick playing cards are often confused with better playing cards which are a fallacy that needs a little understanding to get a better product into the market. Internationally, professional playing card stock is usually 29 to 30 microns (a micron being one is one part of an mm) with an internal grammage of the board ranging from 300 gsm to 320 gsm. Maintaining this thickness or bulk is a very important factor in the manufacture of professional poker or bridge playing cards. Having a bulk/thickness of 30 microns also can be achieved by lower grammages and thicker coatings which would mean not having the correct permutation combination which leads to lack of snap and easy wear and tear of the product. More thickness does not mean higher grammage. Grammage is all about the weight of your deck.

Personalised playing cards can help you increase business. Most people still enjoy card games, and they make excellent gifts for customers and prospective customers. Customers appreciate something that costs nothing and has value. Here are several reasons to consider these kinds of promotional materials.
Many businesses have limited budgets for promotions and advertising. This is especially true with small businesses. When you invest in cards for your next promotion, you will not have to spend a lot of money. Also, you will not have to order thousands of decks for printing.
One of the biggest expenses of business promotions is distribution. For example, you may wish to have special circulars or advertisements printed up to the public. However, that is not the only cost. You also have to pay postage for all of these ads. If you do not pay postage, you need to pay people to distribute them. Promotional items do not require this kind of distribution.
Most promotional materials have very limited lifetimes. Once someone receives a book of matches or a pen, they are easily lost or used up. T-shirts and calendars last longer, but still have their limits. Most promotional items end up in waste bin within a year or less.
Many people like to relax with a good card game. One of your decks may stay in someone’s home for several years or more. Each time someone plays with them, your business, products, or logo will be there for all to see. This allows you to extend your promotion for an indefinite amount of time.
Promotional products afford the opportunity for limited editions. When you only print up so many items, this can make them rare in years ahead. Anything that has the chance to increase in value, is not simply tossed into trash containers. Sometimes, collector editions of things may live in a glass case for everyone to appreciate.
You may wish to make commemorative editions. This is a very good way to honor something or someone in your community. Perhaps your business is reaching some kind of milestone. A commemorative edition can be the perfect promotional item. It is also something that collectors may enjoy and prize for many years.
Printed to Your Specifications
The good thing about your promotional items is the uniqueness. They will be printed just the way that you want them. If you wish to have bright colors to stand out, that is what you can have. Perhaps you wish to print your own unique type of card game. With many services, this is possible.
If you are looking for an effective an inexpensive way to promote our business, personalized playing cards can be an excellent choice. The cost is low because you do not pay for their distribution. Your people can gradually distribute them to potential customers. Cards last a very long time, as opposed to things like ink pens and books of matches. For an effective promotion, you may wish to print limited and special editions. This will attract collectors and a lot of attention.
