Handcrafted 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. Even the most minute details were carefully crafted, polished, and perfected. Like a fine craftsman in his workshop, Capetown designer Simon Frouws produced a playing card design that redefines the category and raises the bar. 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 exact month and year of print.
