Look closely at a pack of cards with your collage mind working, and you'll see a small pack of art work, produced for our creative pleasure. Cards come in a range of sizes and with all sorts of pictures on the back of the decks, of course, but they also come with a wide array of designs on the front as well as cut into shapes.
Blank Card Decks
Make your own special deck of playing cards with these blank-on-both-sides cards, or use them for flash cards. These are called Bridge Cards, which are 2-1/4" x 3-1/2", a bit narrower than Artist Trading Cards. They have a smooth, uncoated surface that's perfect for any stamping inks. A normal American deck has 52 cards plus 2 jokers. We've included a few extra cards for practicing. Or get a Sample Pack.
Note: Playing cards will not go through any printers or copiers, home or commercial. They must be hand done.
