Designer Playing Cards
UK promotional/gift products company Hundred Million has hit the nail on the head with one particular niche product (catering to design geeks like ourselves, of course): CMYK Playing Cards. It’s actually a wonder that no one has developed these before, but from what we can see, Hundred Million did a bang up job translating traditional playing cards to something every designer could appreciate and love. In their own words, Hundred Million says: “Brilliantly stripping away all the heritage and history of good playing card design, we’ve removed everything we could, the suits have been swapped for the printer’s choice of ink: Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black, and the design on the back created from the kind of utilitarian registration marks and checks usually never seen by the public.”
Thanks again for bringing attention to yet another design product for me to enjoy. These cards make it a lot easier than Pantones packaged item of their colors.
These are gorgeous! Now I want a set.
