Joker and the Thief presents Wayfarers Playing Cards - a deck of playing cards that embodies the spirit of travel and adventure!

For our founder James, travel is an essential part of life. He wanted to produce a deck of playing cards that appealed to his love of gathering new experiences. Venturing outwards into the world isn't simply about being in a new place and relaxing. It is an educational experience. When on the road, you're supposed to be broadening your horizons internally, and paying close attention to the world around you. If you observe closely and listen intently, you will be taught new and exciting lessons whether that be through exposure to new cultures, or tapping into the innate wisdom of nature. All this shapes your character for the better. After over 12 months of design, Wayfarers were born. We'll leave it up to you, but we think it is a compelling representation of those who wander far and wide.

The back design boldly represents personal freedom and the human desire to fly high. Laden with ornate details and alluring metallic ink throughout the back design which naturally continues onto the face cards.  

Anything but standard - Wayfarers' face cards feature completely original artwork and a deep narrative running throughout. Wayfarer’s court cards represent nature’s elements - with each royal exercising dominion over their allocated aspect of reality.

Riffle through the deck further and you will come cross yet another compelling Joker and the Thief ace of spades. Effortlessly classic and rich with symbolism.

Wayfarers' tuck box speaks for itself. It is peppered with luxurious touches, including two types of foils - liberally applied to the exterior and interior of the tuck box.

Each foil is stamped heavily, utilising embossing techniques which provide a texture that has to be felt in person to be truly appreciated. Feel every raised surface as you run your fingers over the undulating surface of the tuck box.

Finally, Wayfarers is anointed with a tax stamp style seal, complete with a perforation, allowing you to open your new deck with ease and without damage. 

Proudly printed in the U.S.A by the United States Playing Card Company in Erlanger, Kentucky - on crushed stock and finish for incredible handling and durability.

Printed with environmentally safe ink on sustainably sourced paper.

Cards that shine

Accentuating the details on our 100% custom designs. Watch your luxury playing cards shimmer!


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!
