Artisan Black Playing Cards

Please note: Edition number on tuck seal may vary.

Illustrated by hand in South Africa, Artisans are in a league of their own. A breathtaking mix of elegance, style, and sophistication. 

Designed by Simon Frouws, these premium, luxury playing cards feature elegant gold foil hot stamped onto ultra-lux black paper derived from sustainable forests. 

A breathtaking union of style, elegance, and sophistication.

Featured in Departures Magazine, Artisans have received rave reviews around the world. David Copperfield called them "the best playing cards ever produced." 

Artisan Playing Cards are produced at The United States Playing Card Company using FSC-certified papers derived from sustainable forests, vegetable-based inks and starch-based laminates. The result is a durable finish that respects the environment. Sealed with a red tax-stamp, vintage sticker seal marked with the year of print.

Surprising standout

Fancy, custom decks are falling out of the trees these days. The feature that struck me immediately was the out-of-the box handling experience. These cards felt very close to broken-in, ie, silky but not slick as oiled glass. The stock seems good and they hold up to use. The graphic design is refreshingly restrained in a time of tacky, baroque, over-designed miniature posters trying to pass themselves off as playing cards. These are on my short list.

Handle great and beautiful art work

These decks handle very well. Are cut well and the backs artwork is beautiful. Nice to look at. Big ace of spades pip is also very attractive.

My First Premium Deck

The Black Edition Artisans were my first premium deck when I started collecting a few years ago, and I highly recommend them for anyone looking to start a collection. They're visually striking and handle well without being so ornate that they can't be played with or otherwise used - not that you'd likely play with these, as they're really more of a collector's piece. These, along with the Provision deck, are Theory 11's cleanest must-have decks.

Beautiful

This is a beautiful deck, from the gold and embossing on the tuck case , the corresponding backs and detailed ace of spades. The jokers are uninteresting

Nice Cards

Great looking deck, great feeling deck. Really appreciate them leaving the white border on the back despite being the 'black edition'. Works very well.
