Limited Edition Packaging
These packs of cards are in gorgeous limited edition tuck boxes which have been made by duplexing red and white, or blue and white boards together. Then they’ve been skilled foiled by our small team of skilled artesans with the two-colour ‘330’ logo as a stamp of quality. Print purists out there will appreciate the close registration of the colours, the wonderful gloss of the foil contrasting against the matt papers, and the heavyweight feel of the duplexed card. And you’ll also appreciate the skill involved!
The Simon Lucas Bridge Supplies Limited Edition Premium Quality ‘330’ playing cards are so-called because they are made from the best quality board. Black-lined for opaqueness, the beauty of the dense 330gsm board is that it has optimum flexibility; any heavier and the cards would be too stiff to fan and shuffle, any lighter and they’d be less durable and long lasting. Finished with a special varnish for the most favourable slip and handling, the cards are durable and a delight to use, providing a top-quality cardplay experience. We really enjoy seeing the delight on customers faces when we hand them a pack to shuffle!
Bridge or Poker Size?
Playing cards are most commonly made in two sizes: Bridge and Poker. Poker cards, also known as American size, are usually 63 x 88mm. Bridge cards, also know as English size, are about 5mm narrower than poker cards and this is to make them easier to hold when you’re dealt 13 cards at the beginning of a game of Bridge. The Simon Lucas Premium Quality ‘330’ Playing Cards are Bridge-size cards (58 x 89mm) and they have regular 4-index faces (meaning that they have normal sized pictures and suit symbols on the card faces, and a pip in each of the 4 corners so you can fan your cards in either direction and still see what they are).
Top Tip for Long Lasting Cards
It may seem obvious, but if you wash your hands before you use the cards, it extends their life many times over.
