Does anybody know where to buy jumbo blank playing cards that can be printed on with a laser or inkjet printer?

Googling jumbo blank playing cards brought me to:

http://www.plaincards.com/

8.5 x 11 microperf blank cards.

Oops. My mistake. These make regular sized cards, eight-up to a sheet.

If you want pre-made cards, you may have to e-mail Ronjo or call them. They are listed on the site, but the link goes nowhere.

If you want to make your own from scratch, look for glossy photo card paper at a computer store. You'll have to print both front and backs.

Sanstar,

While I don't know how you plan to use the Jumbo Blank Playing Card, another less expensive option might be visiting a full-service Printer.

Look at their cover stock and thin glossly cardboard stock. I use 24 pound White glossly stock --- it is very close to the thinness of jumbo card stock.

Several years ago I ordered 500 sheets cut to 8 1/2 by 11 inch size. I can't remember the cost, but it was maybe a dime a sheet.

This size is large enough so I can write one or two words (with a thick marker) so my entire audience can see what I have written. Great for revealing predictions.

They can also be secretly marked for a "lie detector" routine / people reading routine. (See page 84 of of Mentalism Incorporated.)

You could even make a Pop-eyed Popper Deck ofd words, location, etc.,--- allowing for an easy, comvincing force.

One final advantage --- the cardboard doesn't look like "blank playing card", but more like something you would see in an office giving me a less suspiciou-looking prop.

Hi Guys,
Pete from Ronjo.com here. We did have an ample supply of Jumbo Bics with blank faces but we ran out and are unable to get a hold of anymore. You guys found a doorway page to a discontinued product. Sorry about that.

The link Rocketeer gave to plaincards.com is a real find. While they don't have jumbo playing cards they do have Tarot size which will work for me. They have a nice little program for making your own cards and, as was said, will sell you perfed cards to print. Anybody wanting to do their own thing with cards should check it out. Many thank, Rocketeer.

Sorry David, this reply is still "off" your original request, but I wanted to point out that those interested in "tarot size" might be well off simply buying Avery #8387 matte postcards. They print beautifully, then you can laminate them and the are both strong and smooth to work with.

Jerskin,

I was getting ready to recommend Haines House of Cards, too. I picked up a few to do Nu Wave (ungimmicked B'wave). Phone number is 513-531-6548. A while ago, they had a good deal on one-way jumbo Bicycle decks. You might ask if they are still available.

If you want jumbo blank playing cards, contact Steve Varro at Dock Haley Gospel Magic: http://www.gospelmagic.com/ I have bought multiple sets of his large cards (about 5"x9") and also his big ol' jumbo cards (about 12"x16"). I have had some with backs on them, some with only faces on them, and some totally blank. They are nice cards, but you'll never get them through your printer.

I have printed what I wanted, then transferred it to an adhesive backed clear acetate, and then put it on the cardstock. It looks great, and the clear acetate protects the design from ever wearing off.
