Card Instructions

Card games tend to be packaged in a tuck box or a small two-piece box because of the small about of components needed to play the game, which correlates often to an easier set of rules. Below are a few different guidelines you can follow to design instructions for your card game.

If you’re interested in reading more about custom game printing, be sure to check out our custom board game hub and our custom card game hub. These parts of our site contain all the information you need to know about creating a board game or a card game – beyond just the standards listed here, these hubs also contain detailed information on all the types of materials and packaging types we offer for your game. We’ve also analyzed board and card games to figure out what makes them work – and how you can apply these principals to your custom game. Check it out!
