Black Core Cardstock – 310 GSM

Black core premium cards

Black Core cardstock is the standard for poker cards because of its high opacity. We offer two types of Black Core cards: Black Core 310 GSM and 330 GSM Black Core Plus (which is the heaviest stock we offer). The material for both types is manufactured in Germany. Our 310 GSM comes pre-textured with a linen texture, which means it can’t be laminated.

What are playing cards made of?

All cards are constructed of two pieces of paper: the front side and the backside of the card. When a core is added, a thick sheet of paper is placed between the front and backside of the card. This prevents light from shining through the card and revealing what is on the front side. 

Black Core cards provide high opacity, meaning that light can’t get through the cards and expose them to other players. These cards are often used in casino card games where cheating is a concern.
