Architect Playing Cards

Playing cards are the primary building blocks and tools with which we create our magic. Just as an architect must carefully plan and build his structures; magicians must take equal care in structuring their effects and presentations. Architect playing cards are the perfect tribute to an art & craft that shares so much with magic.

Designed by Jared Hansen and printed by the Expert Playing Card Company, the Architect deck is truly a sight to behold. The stunning tuck box is crafted from a heavy-duty deep blue matte paper that’s adorned on all sides with intricately applied silver foil.

The cards themselves have the look of a blueprint, featuring a beautiful blue & white back design with fine line work. The faces are Expert Standard with a custom DaVinci-inspired Ace of Spades and identical drawing compass Jokers. The handling is superb thanks to Damask finish, which has a medium thickness and snap with an exquisite embossing pattern and texture.

Zen Royal Red

Get ready for elegance with the latest release from the Expert Playing Card Co.® They’ve pulled out all the stops in the production of their latest deck, the Royal Red Zen. These cards are printed with the new Damask finish on the superior paper stock you have come to expect from EPCC. The back design features black foil-embossed accent logos printed over a deep red patterned background.
The tuck case is the classic Zen sideways design in a dazzling, shimmering red paper stock. The case is embellished with an embossed design and our genie logo printed in rich black foil. An array of genies decorate the matte interior of the tuck as well.
Royal Red Zens handle brilliantly and will make your fans, spreads, cuts, and other moves even more appealing for your audience.
The collector will be pleased to welcome one of the crown jewels to their collection.

Royal Zen

The decks are a classic white bordered deck in a black back design featuring the Expert Playing Card Co.’s signature Zen logo in silver foil with ornate scroll work comprising the rest of the card. The fantastic back design is a reproduction of a very old and extremely rare deck of cards.

Vitreous Reserve

Vit·re·ous: (adjective) -like glass in appearance or physical properties.

Printed on Classic Stock from the Expert Playing Card Company, Vitreous takes its design elements from the stained glass windows of Cathedral Saint-Peter-and-Saint-Paul in Nantes, France. The jokers have a stunning angel with one holding a book, the other holding Jeremy’s card the 10♠️. The deck is “traditionally cut”, making them very well suited for table faros and riffle shuffle work. The stock itself is strong, like NOC v3 or the new Superior series, meaning they’ll retain their shape even after heavy handling.

VHS

They dug through the attic and dusted these historic fossils off to bring to you! Yes, the cards do slide out of the side like a real VHS tape! Get these retro playing cards for your collection.

The court cards are sketched onto a black grid and the most retro fitted colors were chosen. These royals pop like the 80s.

The numbered cards are also hand drawn to make it look like scribble. These also lay onto a black grid which expose the numbers and pips.

The back card is the actual VHS tape in all of its glory. No need to worry, it comes rewound.

Even the the jokers are retro with an old-timey clown. Not too scary, not too childish, just right.

Classic Twins

The mantra at Expert Playing Card Co. is to innovate, always innovate. And even while innovating we always keep the working sleight of hand performer in mind. With the Classic Twins Playing Cards, we proudly introduce some revolutionary new playing card features with a series built for performance.

The Classic Finish has a different embossing pattern and feel. It’s a tiny bit thicker and a little more flexible, while maintaining high quality and excellent edges.

Two-Deck Twin Box: Classic Twins is also an introduction to an EPCC exclusive two-deck twin box. This convenient tuck box made of fine stock (embossed and printed using UV spot coating for exceptional detail), holds two poker packs and still maintains the proportions of a single deck tuck. These two decks feature a beautiful back design (one red deck and one blue).

Expert Classic Faces: These retro-style faces were drawn by hand; they resemble the faces used on many standard decks today but have their own Art Nouveau style. Magicians using these cards don’t need to fear that their audiences will think them suspicious, but they are different enough from standard to be extremely appealing.

Malam Playing Cards

A deck of playing cards inspired by Native American culture.  These cards handle beautifully and feel as good as they look. A custom red tuck case, along with gold foil and embossing, all add to the luxurious feel of these card.

 

Gaming has been apart of Native American culture since the beginning of its time. The Chumash people often played two styles of games, one involving chance, and the other skill. The ancestors of the Chumash often would even place bets on the outcomes of these games as well.

 

Each village had a special area in which these games were played, they called it Malamtepupi. With this in mind System 6 shortened the name to Malam, and merged it with one of the most notorious items used in the current age of gaming, which led to Malam Playing Cards.

Sky Island Red

In the 1960s, a luxury airline called Sky Island Airways offered an exclusive getaway unlike any other. Passengers were whisked away on private jets to a secluded tropical island known only as “Sky Island”. The island offered the very best in food, drink, entertainment, and relaxation. The airline served no other destinations – it was devoted purely to bringing customers to paradise.
With a small fleet of aircraft and only 10 occupants allowed on the island at one time, it was truly a privilege to access this modern Eden.
One day, it all vanished. The planes, the airline, and even the island itself. The only evidence that it had ever existed was a supply of the playing cards that were handed out to passengers during each flight. To this day, nobody knows exactly what happened to Sky Island or the airline. Did the island sink to the bottom of the ocean, bringing the planes with it? Was it a hoax? A dream?

Green is the first color I began to design the deck with it immediately had a tie in my mind with the Regal family. Green is commonly associated with money and wealth. Money = Power.

The highly ornamental and luxurious elements are a perfect fit for our current sensibilities.”  -Creator Steve Minty

NOC Laura Signature

“Over an Old fashioned cocktail, Alex Pandrea asked if I could be the Third Host in his NOC Signature Series.  I was truly honored and agreeing, I got straight to work redesigning and turning them into my perfect deck with the help of the talented designer Tomas Hlavaty.
I instantly knew how I wanted the deck to turn out, and, of course, it HAD to be red.

We added a nice thin black border to the blood-red back design – which is a darker shade than the previous red deck.  The black line allows for the deck to be fully-marked and also adds a subtle reflection of my style and personality.
The deck is a slightly thinner classic stock and has been traditionally cut to make for a smoother gambling experience.  There is also a brand new Ace of Spades and every court card has been customized.I couldn’t be more happy and proud to present, in the NOC signature series, a deck of cards fit for a Queen.”

The deck itself is extremely limited. Less than 1,500 were printed as an experimental project to see if this new technique could even be achieved. The outcome is amazing. The cards handle great! If you love collecting playing cards, this is a great opportunity to own a deck that will likely never be printed again.

The back design was inspired from an old deck in the mid-1800’s and recreated by hand exclusively for this limited edition release.

The sideways box, now a standard for The Expert Playing Card Co., was first introduced in 1895 by The Union Playing Card Co. Aside from looking better than the classic tuck used by other brands of cards we think this one makes for inserting and removing cards easier.

Master Finish – Very thin and very firm. This stock is the most like Jerry’s Nugget that we have been able to get. The choice of many of the masters. Semi-smooth but does have a subtle embossing pattern.

Wasteland

Artistic playing cards illustrated by Jackson Robinson in collaboration with inXile Ent. inspired by the video game Wasteland 2.

Victorian Room

Our story begins 100 years ago – the year is 1916. A mysterious man travels the world teaching people his sleight of hand. He was the best of his day but not many knew how he looked like except the ones fortunate enough to meet him.

They called him Ace Victoria. Arthur “Ace” Victoria was born in Birmingham, England. He later moved to the U.S. at the start of the century where it was said he taught Erdnase himself a thing or two. His travels took him all over the world. Although very little is known of him, the majority of information was revealed in his journal, which was found years later in India. His custom card design was found sketched in the journal along with many secret techniques and sleights devised by Ace.

The Blue Crown has taken upon the task of restoring the artwork found in the old journal and reprinting this amazing deck of cards. Designed by Rudy Faber, and finalized by Edo Huang. Concept by Alex Mihailescu.  Enter the Victorian Room.

Victoria

Do you want Victory? Then arm yourself with the Victoria Playing Cards and slay your spectators with the grace and beauty of every card. 100% custom pips, jokers, and court cards. R.E. Handcrafted has added a couple of really cool and subtle secrets to the deck which makes it even more powerful to use in performances of magic.
Each new deck is one faro shuffle away from Mnemonica right out of the box.  The deck also features an incredible and subtle one-way back design… once you know it you’ll see it all the time but spectators will have no idea what’s being done!

Switzerland

Another deck about which very little is known, featuring a brilliant one way back design to commemorate a beautiful country.

Robusto Classic Reserve

A full foil, shimmering back design! New Robusto stock! Tuck designed by Jackson Robinson! Limited to 1000 decks.  This is your chance to handle the new Robusto stock and witness the glory of our super detailed full foil back design.

The Superior Brand is our newest brand joining Exquisite, Zen, Global Titan and our others from EPCC. It represents our never-ending effort to both create the greatest cards and offer them to you at the most reasonable prices.

Robusto Stock: Both editions of the new Robusto Classic share this new stock from Expert PCC, and simply put, it’s the thickest, strongest, most elegant stock ever used for playing cards. Be ready to use some serious hand strength when using these. They are not flimsy, spongy cards like many other decks on the market. Much like a baseball batter might swing two bats, the thickness of this stock makes for an outstanding practice deck. If you can do poker deals, shifts, springs or fans with this deck, handling one of our Master Finish or Classic Finish decks will be a breeze.

Foil on Foil: We believe that this is the first time foil has been applied directly on top of other foil. This opens up the world to an amazing array of effects that could not have been done before. The Reserve deck tuck was stamped with a very expensive matte red foil followed by gold foil on top of that.

Full foil backs: We were the first to use foil on the backs of cards when we introduced the Exquisite Bold last year. Our modest little star was a cool feature and proved to the world that first-class cardistry and sleight-of-hand level playing cards could also have foil on the backs. Since that revolutionary technique was launched we have produced over a dozen different decks with foil on their backs and are now ready for the piece de resistance: the complete back pattern in hot stamped foil. We are aware that about 18 months after we introduced foil on card backs other manufactures “invented” the process and now are claiming something original. Not only did we actually do it first, we do it best. Our full back design in gold foil on our Robusto Classic Reserve is now the reference standard.

In addition to these new features this pair of decks also offer other wonderful elements that you have come to regularly expect from an EPCC deck: embossing multiple foil colors, spot UV, numbered custom seals and more.

If you want to have the decks that changed everything, get your hands on Robusto Classic Reserve today.

Smith No. 3

Smith No. 3 by The Expert Playing Card Co. is the final installment of our Erdnase 1902 series. This deck has the Smith hands pattern (by Guy Hollingworth) with two casino style ovals that have M.D. Smith’s signature on them. This signature was taken from a copy of Erdnase we have in our library. The Ace of Spades has a rendering of Mr. Smith’s face (like Willis Russell used to do) and the tuck has a die cut hole so you can see Mr. Smith while the deck is closed. Don’t miss out on this chance to complete your Erdnase 1902 series!

This deck, like all decks from Expert Playing Card Company has been carefully produced to be the finest handling deck presently produced in the world. Cardists will notice the Master Finish allows for smooth and easy fans and other flourishes. Faro shufflers will see that our edges are the finest cut edges possible in the world. They will perfectly faro either face up or face down right out of the box. Card collectors will also notice that the registration on our decks is perfect. You do not get cards with inconsistent white borders from The Expert Playing Card Company.

Sky Island Black

In the 1960s, a luxury airline called Sky Island Airways offered an exclusive getaway unlike any other. Passengers were whisked away on private jets to a secluded tropical island known only as “Sky Island”. The island offered the very best in food, drink, entertainment, and relaxation. The airline served no other destinations – it was devoted purely to bringing customers to paradise.
With a small fleet of aircraft and only 10 occupants allowed on the island at one time, it was truly a privilege to access this modern Eden.
One day, it all vanished. The planes, the airline, and even the island itself. The only evidence that it had ever existed was a supply of the playing cards that were handed out to passengers during each flight. To this day, nobody knows exactly what happened to Sky Island or the airline. Did the island sink to the bottom of the ocean, bringing the planes with it? Was it a hoax? A dream?

Sideshow

Muertos Love Deck

Muertos is an original set of American playing cards designed by Steve Minty. It is independently crafted and honors the holiday that celebrates life and death; Dia De Los Muertos. The Muertos deck takes the classic aesthetics of Dia De Los Muertos and is updated with the tradition of playing and Steve’s experiences growing up. It depicts the social classes and history of the culture while simultaneously giving off a contemporary elegant luxurious feel.

 The Muertos Love Deck is based on the blood that runs in our veins. They say that Blood is thicker than water and so is the love of family. Dia De Los Muertos brings family closer together to honor the dead and Steve couldn’t help but use that as my source of inspiration.

Muertos Celebration Deck

The Muertos deck takes the classic aesthetics of Dia De Los Muertos and is updated with the tradition of playing and Steve’s experiences growing up.

Mana 3 Silver

To many magicians and cardists and even some collectors, “Sybil” is synonymous to the famous card flourish that has become the basic foundation to many cardistry techniques today. It was the inspiration to the Oracle Cut created by Erik Mana when the Oracle deck was first launched. And you can see the Oracle Cut being performed in the Joker card of the Oracle deck.

But in ancient times oracles went by a different name…Sybil. Sybils were know as prophetess and were regularly sought out for divine advice. Playing cards too have divine elements and have been used in divination and magic for centuries, which is why the Oracle & Sybil decks will always have a special kinship in it’s design.

One of the most talked about elements of our original Silver Oracle was the combination of silver and black inks while incorporating the white ornamental flourish design. This combination of form and function gave a brilliant 3D effect when light reflected at a certain angle. It was an effect that we could have only hoped for during our design process, but when we saw the actual effect come alive, we knew we created something very special and unique.

Sybil brings that special silver 3D effect back with a more enhanced finish by EPCC and now it comes in gold and platinum. We also have new design elements from back to face to box. A completely new deck with the spirit of the original Oracle flowing in its vines.

Jetsetter Premium

Never Forgotten

Never Forgotten Playing Cards were designed by Randy Butterfield (Midnight Playing Cards), and playingcards.net to pay tribute to those we have lost to cancer.

Never Forgotten was revealed at the 52 Plus Joker Convention in Orlando.  Never Forgotten was self-funded. The project also consisted of a matching coin that is just as beautiful and intricate as the deck itself.

The Nautical Deck is the brainchild of artist Edo Huang, and is reminiscent of a classic bordered Bee design. Everything about the deck is inspired by the sea. From the rope-like pattern & life preservers integrated into the back design, to the rope border on the court cards, and the impressive ship joker.

The cards are printed on a thin, flexible, and durable stock that’s manufactured and hand-finished in Shanghai. The more they are used, the better these cards perform! The cards have a fine embossed texture, with a feel and expert handling!

Joker and the Thief Gold

Now available in a stunning new gold colorway. The Joker and the Thief series evokes a story of life and mortality – riffle the cards and peek inside the thievery, lies, and deceit that transforms this deck for an enchanting game of play.

The back-design has been meticulously designed. It effortlessly draws you in to a gathering of 12 court cards, dressed with charisma and distinct in character – royalty ready for battle.

Following the custom court cards are weathered spot cards, a striking Ace of Spades and two Jokers depict a harlequin and a bandit, hence the name.

This masterpiece is packaged within a sensational tuck case, embossed and wrapped in shiny gold foil. Bold and powerful – a true testament to the Joker and the Thief brand.

Joker and the Thief

For three years, Joker and the Thief reviewed and handled hundreds of custom designer playing cards from around the world.

The first step in their process was to create a unique back design, one that not only had an intricately beautiful design but one that both appealed aesthetically and sentimentally. It had to be thought provoking, and had to evoke a certain connotation. From the first sketches to the end product, it slowly developed its own flair, and this continues throughout the deck!

The tuck case is peppered with lavish touches, and adorned with silver foil, on matte finished paper. It is embossed on all sides, has a hot-stamped foil interior, and a perforated tax stamp seal.

Encarded Standard

These cards feature a metallic blue back and an amazing tuck case with silver foil and embossing details.

Master Finish – Very thin and very firm. This stock is the most like Jerry’s Nugget that we have been able to get. The choice of many of the masters. Semi-smooth but does have a subtle embossing pattern.

Classic Gold

The special Classic Gold deck features a classic, elegant back design and a dazzling tuck case. They are produced with Expert Playing Card Co’s® now famous Classic Finish.

The card back features metallic gold ink, printed inverted from the standard Classic Twins, with the minimal ink coverage offering a slightly different handling than the Classic Twins.

Titanic Deluxe

On her maiden voyage, April 10th 1912, the Titanic carried 2,224 passengers and crew towards New York City. As fate would have it, she would never make it to this destination. Late in the evening hours of April 14th she hit an iceberg. Within three hours, she sank to the bottom of the ocean taking with her 1,514 victims.

Inspired by these events, the design of the deck is full of sensitivity and every detail has been carefully treated. The design includes portraits of relevant passengers in the court cards and anice jokers diptych. The back design is inspired in the dome above Titanic’s staircase.

Regal Purple

Gambler’s Warehouse welcomes the return of renowned cardist John Powell, who invites you to make room in your collection for Regal: tradition with a lavish twist.

Combining robust design elements with a fresh take on classical styling, Regal invites you to sit among the royal. Have your pick of Regal’s four (4) fancy color themes (one color to a deck): red, purple, blue, or green.

Purple combines the stability of blue and the energy of red. Purple is associated with royalty. It symbolizes power, nobility, luxury, and ambition. It conveys wealth and extravagance. Purple is associated with wisdom, dignity, independence, creativity, mystery, and magic all of which were the foundations we based the Regal deck off of.

Nine Lives

After creating the artwork for the Nine Lives Tarot, Annette Abolins was further inspired to combine the symbolism of playing cards and tarot. Nine Lives Playing Cards features the Kings, Queens and Knights from Nine Lives Tarot, redrawn and clothed to match their corresponding suit sign and with additional details in the artwork. The resultant deck was winner of the PCF Design Competition, printed by EPCC and launched in June 2016. The four aces have been designed to incorporate symbolism derived from the tarot deck.

Mana Light Blue

This is not just a color change of the original Silver Oracle deck. This deck has evolved into something altogether new, special and unique. We decided that this would not be an Oracle deck, but rather something that was inspired by the spirit of the Oracle and thus Mana No.3 was born.

To many magicians and cardists and even some collectors, “Sybil” is synonymous to the famous card flourish that has become the basic foundation to many cardistry techniques today. It was the inspiration to the Oracle Cut created by Erik Mana when the Oracle deck was first launched. And you can see the Oracle Cut being performed in the Joker card of the Oracle deck.

But in ancient times oracles went by a different name…Sybil. Sybils were know as prophetess and were regularly sought out for divine advice. Playing cards too have divine elements and have been used in divination and magic for centuries, which is why the Oracle & Sybil decks will always have a special kinship in it’s design.

Sybil brings that special silver 3D effect back with a more enhanced finish by EPCC and now it comes in gold and platinum. We also have new design elements from back to face to box. A completely new deck with the spirit of the original Oracle flowing in its vines.

Mana Gold

This is not just a color change of the original Silver Oracle deck. This deck has evolved into something altogether new, special and unique. We decided that this would not be an Oracle deck, but rather something that was inspired by the spirit of the Oracle and thus Mana No.3 was born.

To many magicians and cardists and even some collectors, “Sybil” is synonymous to the famous card flourish that has become the basic foundation to many cardistry techniques today. It was the inspiration to the Oracle Cut created by Erik Mana when the Oracle deck was first launched. And you can see the Oracle Cut being performed in the Joker card of the Oracle deck.

A traditional style back design, these decks come packaged in an expanded tuck to hold both decks and was the first deck to introduce the Classic Finish.

This deck was designed by Jackson Robinson especially for the 52 Plus Joker convention in 2014. In addition to a great use of metallic ink and foil on the cards, the deck is housed in a very sturdy slip case style box.

Hive by Kings Wild

The Hive is a new deck from Kings Wild designer Brendan Hong.  Expert Playing Card Co. is very pleased to be working closely with Jackson Robinson and Kings Wild and we are truly honored to have been able to produce this deck.

You can buy them at Kings Wild but they are very limited so act fast.

Microsoft-Blaine

Shhhh! This special deck was produced by Microsoft just for one party where David Blaine performed.

Exquisite Blue

Expert Playing Card Co. Is very proud to have introduced our ground breaking Exquisite brand last year. This deck was the first to use our exclusive sideways tuck and because of the card stock and coating used this deck has quickly become a sensation among serious card handlers world wide.

The Exquisite brand originated in 1895 from The Union Playing Card Co. in New York with the “sideways tuck.”

The back design used on this deck however comes from the Art Nouveau period. Together, we think they compliment each other quite well.

Exquisite Red

The Red Exquisite is the most limited deck that Expert Playing Card as produced so far. Only 1000 produced and only 800 for sale. Each deck comes with a special limited edition Pack Jacket, an outer carrying case to protect your playing cards from wear and tear.

The back design in metallic red ink is the reverse of the Blue Exquisite deck.

NOC

Bold, simple, and elegant. Perfect for any application.

The NOC deck by the Blue Crown’s House of Playing Cards gets to the heart of the cards themselves and eliminates distractions. The deck has a striking back with a solid bar of color and a thin white border. This puts the emphasis on the work you do with the cards, not on the cards themselves.

The original NOC decks were released a few years ago and have become a true modern classic. Now with version 3 produced by the Expert Playing Card company NOC users can benefit from the fun and functional sideways tuck and superior fit and finish of these great cards.

Special features include a special reveal inside the tuck flap. A suit marking system and the soon to be classic sideways tuck.

Smith No.3

Smith No. 3 by The Expert Playing Card Co. is the latest and final installment of the Erdnase 1902 series. This deck features a repetitive pattern by Guy Hollingworth depicting illustrations from the The Expert at the Card Table by S.W. Erdnase.

The signature, of M.D. Smith, was carefully recreated from an old signed copy found in the Conjuring Arts Research Center’s private collection. The Ace of Spades has a rendering of Mr. Smith’s face and the tuck has a die cut hole so you can see Mr. Smith while the deck is closed.

Zen Pure

Coming soon from the Expert PCC is our new Zen Pure deck. A deck certain to become classic.

Zen

Expert Playing Card’s homage to Eugen Herrigel’s Zen in the Art of Archery is the basis of this amazing deck. Coming later this year.

Zenith Signature Series

The first deck in the Encarded Signature Series, Zenith is one of the rarest full releases in the world of modern playing cards. There are no other editions, no other box designs, no other colors and it won’t be printed again. Less than 1,000 sealed and individually numbered decks will be released.

Zenith is a dramatic re-imagining of the several commonly seen playing card themes: the black and white deck design, the central circular medallion motif, and borderless design. Zenith may be the only deck to combine such themes into such a cohesive and elegant package.

Zenith is housed in a special sideways opening tuck box made of elegant, thick matte black paper, adorned with amazingly detailed and vibrant holographic silver foil and sealed with a sequentially numbered seal (xxxx/1000) under the cellophane. The beauty of the sideways tuck also allows you to open the deck with one simple straight cut across the seal, preserving the appearance and detail of the seal when you have the deck closed.

Exquisite Bold

This colorful new deck from Expert Playing Card Co. sets a milestone in printing by incorporating foil directly on the playing card. You have to see it to believe it!

The deck itself is extremely limited. Less than 1,500 were printed as an experimental project to see if this new technique could even be achieved. The outcome is amazing but not perfect as the registration on the foil is sometimes off a few pixels. The cards however handle great! If you love collecting playing cards, this is a great opportunity to own a deck that will likely never be printed again.

The back design was inspired from an old deck in the mid-1800’s and recreated by hand exclusively for this limited edition release.

The sideways box, now a standard for The Expert Playing Card Co., was first introduced in 1895 by The Union Playing Card Co. Aside from looking better than the classic tuck used by other brands of cards we think this one makes for inserting and removing cards easier.

This deck is available exclusively from Art of Play

Global Titan Playing Cards

Global Titans are the premiere release of The Expert Playing Card Company. EPCC is committed to creating the best cards in the world for the best hands in the world.

Global Titans are an amazingly thin, flexible and workable deck manufactured and then finished by hand in Shanghai. In addition to the exceptionally fine quality of the cards themselves the packs come in a beautiful Art Nouveau tuck case that is both gold foil stamped as well as embossed.

These cards are limited and will not be reprinted.

Cards


Expert Porper Clip

The Expert Playing Card Company® introduces its first Porper Clip! These beautiful clips are custom sized, anodized in 5 stunning colors and engraved both inside and out.

Only ten of each color (Black, Gold, Silver, Red, and Blue) are available for sale. These extraordinary clips are strong and light and will protect your deck from warping. By keeping your decks flat and uniform, they will be ready for perfect handling. Additionally, the clip will keep your box from getting completely squashed when not in use!

These amazing clips are engineered for 54 cards of Master Finish (also works with retail USPCC stocks like Bicycle and Tally-Ho). Classic and Damask finish cards might be a little tight for this one, but fit great without jokers.

Kevlar Card Clip

A World First, a 100% real Kevlar Card Clip. It weighs only 1 oz (27 grams)!

Kevlar! That’s right, straight from the world of bulletproof vests*. Expert Playing Card Co. (EPCC) worked closely with Lawrence Sullivan and managed to pull off another world first. This beautiful clip is strong, stylish and really rare. We only have 15 and not sure if we will ever get more.

*We make no claims that this clip is bulletproof and strongly advise that the end user not shoot anything at it.

Carbon Clip V2.0

An updated and textured version of our Carbon Card Clip. It weighs only 1 oz (27 grams)!

Light as a feather and stronger than steel, Expert Playing Card Co. (EPCC) worked closely with Lawrence Sullivan to update our Carbon Fiber Card Clip. This beautiful clip is strong, stylish and really rare.

Titanium Card Clip

A World First, a 100% real Titanium Card Clip. It weighs only 1.4 oz (39.7 grams)!

Expert Playing Card Company® has collaborated with our friend Lawrence Sullivan and Legends Playing Card Company to develop something truly awe-inspiring: the world’s first completely Titanium Card Clip!

Discovered in 1791, titanium gets its name from the Titans of Greek mythology. It is astoundingly strong, featuring the highest strength-to-density ratio of any metallic element and is extremely corrosion resistant.

They are a lustrous yet understated grey color and sublimely light in weight. Crafting them to our specifications was quite a feat of engineering. They will protect your cards and keep them perfectly flat, despite a trim profile and light as a feather feel. They weigh in at just under one and a half ounces!

We have not had very many made due to the high cost involved, but we think that those that make the investment will have a card clip that will last many lifetimes and never fail.

Custom Card Boxes

We have the capability to print custom boxes for your decks in a wide variety of shapes and styles to hold any number of decks. The possibilities are endless!

Carbon Card Clip

Now for something completely different!
For the first time a 100% real Carbon Fiber clip!
This new stylish gem is the result of a three way collaboration with Lawrence Sullivan, David Blaine and the Expert Playing Card Company.
This ultra light and outrageously strong new clip is polished to a beautiful luster and will set you apart from the all the others.

Pack Jackets

A few months ago the Expert Playing Card Company released a revolutionary new product, the Pack Jacket. They have been a huge success and V-1 has nearly sold out already.

In response to such great interest, we created Pack Jacket V 2.0.

The new design replaces the elastic band closure with a tuck flap. Without the elastic you can stack more Pack Jackets together in a tidier way. They also take up less room in your pocket. In order for the new flap to be durable and dependable, EPCC developed a special coating for the Pack Jacket that is resistant to water and tearing. These new Jackets will last a long time and will look terrific while holding your favorite decks.

 

Luxury Card Boxes

Are you looking for something amazing and beautiful to hold your precious playing card collection? Expert Playing Card Co recognizes that the normal brick boxes that come when you buy a dozen decks of nice cards aren’t up to the quality of the cards they hold. Our solution is a heavy duty box that will hold a dozen or even 15 decks and not only keep them secure but also store them in great style. We’ve decorated both the lid and the inside of this 2 piece box with our signature playing card collage design. This design uses numerous back designs we’ve produced previously as well as designs that will come in the future.

These would also be a great way to wrap a gift other than cards. Just put the present inside, add some Conjuring Arts ribbon, and you are set to give!
We’ve produced only a small number of these and might not produce them again. Available in Red and Blue from Conjuring Arts!

Wrapping Paper

Wrap your gifts in style! We have used all of our original back designs that we’ve previously printed and also added some upcoming decks to the design! Our wrapping paper is printed on very nice heavy paper and, although it’s suitable for framing, it’s really designed and perfect for wrapping all your gifts! Available from Conjuring Arts.

Notebook

The cover design is a wonderful collage of our exclusive playing cards, so your notebook will definitely never get confused with anyone else’s. Inside we’ve used a heavy grade of fine cream paper. In addition we’ve added two nice pockets in the back for keeping track of loose notes, a ribbon to keep your place, and an elastic closure to keep your notebook nice and secure. Available from Conjuring Arts.

Our Expertise


Who we are

Expert Playing Card Company® of New York City is a new project of the Conjuring Arts Research Center. Conjuring Arts has produced high quality playing cards for several years now and found it was time to share our knowledge and expertise with others by allowing others to print playing cards with us. Expert Playing Card company is now accepting orders from other designers and publishers.

All profits and proceeds raised by EPCC® flow through to Conjuring Arts which is a federally registered and authorized 501(c)3 non-profit organisation. All proceeds help our mission to preserve historical and culture material and to teach magic to those in need of empowerment.

We also work very closely with Lawrence Sullivan and his Legends Playing Card Company of Hong Kong. Lawrence has been instrumental in finding various resources and factories for cards and accessories and working with him is a great pleasure. If for any reason working with Expert Playing Card Company doesn’t work for you please consider working with Legends PCC.

 

Our philosophy

Expert Playing Card Company has researched playing cards from all possible angles. We have collected and studied antique playing cards and learned all that we can about how cards are produced in the past and today. Our primary goal is to create and produce the world’s finest performing playing cards.

We also recognize  that the design and production of playing card packaging is integral to meeting our customers’ demand for innovation. In this regard we can do all styles of tuck cases presently popular and we are also constantly striving to create new innovations in tuck cases and other packaging.

Our approach

In order to be the world leaders in both playing card performance as well as design innovation we have already, and continue to scour the earth for factories to work with. We have produced cards in multiple countries and using varying different techniques and factories. Our knowledge gained by working closely with different printers around the world puts us in a unique position.  Even though we believe the decks we produce today are the best currently produced anywhere in the world we are never satisfied and continue to explore and search for even new and greater techniques and materials to improve further our products.

Custom


Custom decks are really what Expert Playing Card Co. is all about. Although at this time we are not publishing a price list we will happily give you a personalized quote for your deck. Please take a look at the basics and send us an email to custom-orders@expertplayingcard.com The basics are:

  • Our minimum stand alone order is 1000 decks. If you have other projects with us we can consider doing special editions of as few as 500 decks.
  • We prefer artwork to be vector in Adobe Illustrator format with all fonts outlined. We can accept Photoshop files but any line art in .psd format will need to be 1200 dpi.
  • Art setup charges and physical proofs will be included in the cost of your decks. Our physical proofs are made on the same offset press that we use to produce your cards. We feel this is a huge advantage to custom order customers.
  • The printing plates and any custom tooling such as for foil stamping or embossing are charged separately. We do this so you can easily figure out how to economize and whether or not a special feature is worth the extra money.
  • We will help arrange shipping of your decks to you but you will be responsible for the shipping costs, insurance and any customs fees or import duties if your country charges them. In the U.S. there are no import duties on playing cards at this time.
