Made in America

Quality is our highest priority. That's why we only use the best manufacturers in the world. Our cards and boxes are printed in the United States with industry leading quality. The factory we use has 130 years of playing card printing experience. They know their stuff!


The Performance Collection offers an unbeatable marriage of paper stock and finish. You’ve never felt cards quite like them. They’re undeniably crisp, and workable in your hands. All while providing superior durability - making them the ideal every day carry!


Our Crushed Performance stock begins life as two sheets of FSC-Certified paper. They are passed through a press with a black glue core sticking them together. We specify a higher pressure than normal during this process. This results in a remarkably thin stock with superior handling, while retaining the durability our decks are known for.

the finishing touch

We utilise a special finish on the surface of our cards. It is applied to the paper's surface by linen rollers, creating dimples that form air pockets between each card. This allows your playing cards to glide and spread with absolute ease. 

Each deck features a security seal, so that you know your cards have not been tampered with. Our seals are perforated, providing an easy way to open your new deck and preserve the seal's art without the need for sharp objects.


All of our decks feature Anti-Cheat Glue Core Technology. Sandwiched between each card is a black glue, fusing both sheets of FSC-Certified Paper that forms our stock. This is a security feature that ensures any one card remains opaque when held up to bright light. Fair Play!
