Canal Winchester, OH (PRWEB) June 13, 2005
The first store in the U.S. dedicated to family-friendly playing cards now offers an online ÂdesignerÂ that allows anyone to create their own card back on a deck of poker sized playing cards, then have as little as one deck at a time professionally printed. Since its inception in 2000, NewtÂs Playing Cards (http://www.newtscards.com) has been at the forefront of the playing card craze that has swept across the United States and the world due to the popularity of card games like Texas Hold ÂEm Poker and collectibles like the Iraqi Most Wanted deck. This designer takes the playing card world to the Ânext level.Â
With the Design-A-Card ÂWePrintEmÂ online tool, anyone can design their own photo playing cards by uploading their own image, selecting a border, adding text, and even choosing the face or style of cards they want (like canasta, pinochle, jumbo index, poker, etc.). The options are endless while all of this is done LIVE, via the internet.
ÂOver the past couple of years we have sold thousands of decks of customized playing cards, one deck at a time,Â says founder and playing card collector James Esteph. ÂNow to be able to offer a tool that allows the customer to design their own cards is not only exciting for us, but a monumental moment in the world of personalization. This brings the creative side back into the gift giving world allowing users to be the actual designer of the playing cards,Â he explains.
"I've been designing playing cards for over 15 years now and it takes me a long time to create artwork for a deck of cards," says playing card artist, Peter Wood (http://www.hugobia.co.uk) "Now Newt's has once again taken the 'art' of cards even further by allowing you to create your own custom deck online - in a fraction of the time! As an added bonus you can even use some of my artwork as the card face or to add your own text to on the card back."
Along with allowing folks to design their own playing cards, NewtÂs offers major brands like BicycleÂ®, PiatnikÂ®, U.S. Games, CopagÂ®, KEMÂ® and CongressÂ®. NewtÂs offers its own line of cards that are called Seek-N-Find playing cards too. The first deck, WILD!, was released two years ago; a second, called Busy Bears, is available as one of the card faces that can be chosen when you design your own deck.
