Well, that’s a special question. For hundreds, if not thousands, of years playing cards have been the center of leisure and entertainment. From common household games, simple wagers, all the way up to full-blown gambling, playing cards have been at the forefront of society for many years.
But… How are they made? What does it take to create a deck of cards from nothing: the paper, the inks, the tuck case, checking if everything is 100% perfect. The folks at The United States Playing Card Company have perfected this process for over 130 years. See how they do it in the video below!
A fun fact: the black glue that Lance Merrell, former head of R&D at the USPCC, is talking about is what makes Bicycle cards so durable and loved. It’s the “special sauce” they use to bind the paper layers and ensure durability, great snap, and an overall incredibly well-handling deck of cards.
