Non-Standard Sized Playing Cards
Non-standard sized playing cards arre any square or rectangular-shaped card that requires a width and length not associated with a commonly used card, such as poker or tarot.
Cost-Efficient Card Dies
Non-standard sized playing cards are cut to size using a die. Dies are metal blades that cut through paper by applying heavy pressure. We have many pre-made custom die sizes in stock, as listed below. If you don’t see the die size you are looking for, never fear, we can create a brand-new die to your specs. However, creating a new die will add a significant cost to your project, approximately $500 for international offset orders.
For domestically printed orders it can be even more than that, approximately $600 – $900. If you are interested in a custom die for a domestic order, you’ll want to make sure you have your artwork ready since pricing on those dies is completely custom. PrintNinja also requires a $1000 deposit for domestic orders requiring custom dies as we need to perform the full prepress process to get pricing for the die. That deposit can be put towards your order and is completely refundable as long as the die has not started production.
If you would like to keep costs low, we recommend choosing from our selection. Also, please note that custom card dies are only available on orders over 500 units.
Cost-Efficient Card Counts
You can also cut costs by choosing the right card count. We discuss this in our card count section, but it’s worth repeating.
The offset method prints all of your cards onto one large parent sheet. Cost is directly correlated to the number of parent sheets needed for your project. In the “Custom Die Sizes in Stock” section below, the parentheses show how many cards fit onto one parent sheet based on die size. You will be able to cut costs by making your card game equal to or less than the number of cards that can fit on one sheet.
For example, if you use a 2.45″ x 3.45″ die – which can fit 55 cards on one sheet – you may want to limit your game to 55 cards or less.
If you don’t see what you’re looking for we can create a custom sized playing card.
Please note that the sizes listed below do not correspond with optimal card counts for domestically produced card games. Those can be found here.
