Casinos use them, kids love them, magicians fly through them but playing cards come in all manner of shapes, sizes and types and they are serious business. They are something that almost every household will have and which we almost take for granted.
Printing and manufacturing playing cards is a specialist process and not something which many printers would ever want to take on. Every card has to be of a standard shape, you cant have cards of different sizes, nor can there be any other irregularities. Achieving this is no small task, but one which specialist card manufacturers do with apparent ease.
Protea Playing Cards has been producing playing cards since 1968 and over the ensuing 51 years has perfected the art to the point where it is the industry benchmark in the production of quality playing cards. We use premium quality materials, with every deck being hand-checked to ensure the highest quality and consistency standards. One year ago Protea Playing Cards became part of the House of Print family. There are numerous synergies between the two companies which makes this the perfect fit. Top quality print from House of Print meets top quality finishing at Protea Playing Cards.
This merging of quality production techniques combined with premium quality materials results in cards of the highest standards. We even manufacture cards for use in casinos throughout Africa. We can design and manufacture top quality plastic playing cards and board playing cards for Blackjack, Poker and Punto Banco to meet the stringent and unyielding standards sets by casinos.
In addition to the standard playing cards featuring the four suits, Protea Playing Cards also manufactures a wide range of customised cards, both for advertising and information purposes. They can be used as educational, informational and recreational cards. There are infinite possibilities with which advertising cards can be used. If you can dream it, we can create it.
We can handle orders ranging from as few as 500 decks up to tens of thousands of decks. Our cards are available through retail outlets around South Africa, in fact, our Canasta sets will soon be available through Pick n Pay outlets countrywide. In additional to standard and advertising decks, we also manufacture a wide range of educational decks. These include Poker sets, Bridge Sets, Large index cards, AIDS awareness cards, Safety awareness cards, Truck Driver Cards and Environment cards among many others. Many of our cards are available ex-stock.
You come up with the concept, we will create the card. Let’s play together.
