Topic: Dirty or sticky cards. How to do YOU get the most out of your deck?
Message: Posted by: Genio (Aug 11, 2002 07:12PM)
I am a person who performs a lot now and i have a deck in my hands most of the time. The cards get sticky and hard to use pretty quick. Is there some trick that i don't know about that can extend the life of my cards?

Yes. Buy them in quantity, and use the old ones for gaffs and practice.

Can you buy cards directly from the U.S. Playing Card Co. in a pack of 100 or something?

you can buy in bulk from the US playing card co but you have to buy in real bulk...

For cards that last a real long time I reccomend gemaco. I have a deck next to my computer that I practice with when I sit at my desk (quite often) and they still fan like new after a good six months. I can't say that this is the norm as it is the only gemaco deck I have and it was made special for an advertizing campaign.



check out http://www.kardwell.com/ for a bunch of decent bulk deals.

You can buy directly from USPC, but as mentioned, it must be in true bulk. Your better bet is going to a warehouse club and buying a dozen decks for about $15.

Card Warp and practice on the Fusion Twist. Sam's club sells them in bulk, last time I checked it was a dozen for about 9 bucks.
