    For those who have no idea how to make fun and engaging card game rules, we can provide customized service. You just need to provide us with your card game's information as much as possible, including game type, number of players, objective, mechanics, etc.

    Game Card Size

    Card Size

    Card sizes affect the cost of production, as well as the compatibility with other game components such as card sleeves, storage boxes, and game boards. Here are some common sizes for game cards: 63*88mm for Poker, 57*88mm for Bridge, and 70*120mm/88*126mm for Tarot.

    Game Card Shape

    Card Shape

    As a card game manufacturer, we understand that each game card is unique and requires a distinct look and feel, so we offer a wide range of shapes for you to choose from, including square, round, rectangle, oval, heart, star, triangle and custom special shapes.

    Cardstock Grade

    Cardstock Material

    Card stock weight is measured in GSM (grams per square meter), the higher GSM the thicker and heavier the card will be.

    Below is our cardstock options:

    • 250 /300 /350 gsm C2S
    • 280 /300 gsm grey core cards
    • 310 gsm German-made black core cards
    • 300 gsm China-made black core cards
    • 250 /300 gsm blue core cards
    • 0.3-0.35mm thick white/ black smooth PVC

    Card Core

    • The card core goes from grey to blue & white, and finally to black, the quality, stiffness, and durability of the card increase.
    • Grey core is the cheapest, black is the most expensive.
    • The white core and blue core are basically the same in terms of quality and price.

    Card Printing

    CMYK Printing

    • 4C/0C (4 color 1 side printing)

    • 4C means CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black)
    • CMYK is best for printed materials because print mediums use colored inks for messaging.
    • Combining these 4 colors to make a wide range of colors.

    Tips on Designing Game Cards

    Some general card graphic design tips that should be helpful to you.


    You should choose 3 ~ 4 colors for your color scheme. Make sure that the colors don't clash between text, borders, backgrounds, and images, but have enough contrast so that the player can clearly distinguish between them.


    Ideally, you cards should have 2 ~ 3 fonts and make sure they indicate the direction of the eyes and help players read the text. The fonts should contrast and complement each other, so if you choose a cursive or italic font, choose a font with heavy bold lines.


    Instead of a static image in the middle of your cards, you should choose images that generate motion. Because the static image disrupts the flow of the overall image when flat centered images arouse the eyes just to the center of the card.
