Hello All,

I'm looking for some high resolution images of all playing cards in a deck.

I've searched using google, but all I can find is low resolution images.

Each image needs to be of a high enough resolution to printed, without pixilization, onto the back of a business card.

Any pointers?

Step 1: Scan your cards into your computer.

Step 2: Import into Illustrator and save.

Step 3: Design away (if you're making business cards, I'd do them in Quark, but that's me...).

There’s a free set of 52 vector shapes for Photoshop at Adobe Studio Exchange.
Some of the court designs are simplified, but the advantage is you can have them pin sharp at any resolution you need and modify the colours/styles to suit.

Either search for ‘deck of cards’ or long url:

If you scan a deck of cards, note the copyright information on the deck. On Bicycle cards, they note that the Jokers and the Ace of Spades, as well as the backs, are unique, copyrighted images. I'm not sure about the court cards (I can't believe I'm not carrying a deck at all times).

The last thing you need is to hand your Bicycle Ace of Spades business card to someone from the U.S. Playing Card Company.

Yours,

Paul

If you have Photoshop and need help with setting up custom shapes, I'm happy to help you through the process.
You can get some very good results with them and they are copyright free.
Regards,
Nick.

Here are some pretty good playing card graphics.

There is a pointer to a download link that provides either a zip file or a tar.gz file that contains all the card images except the jokers.

These are all under the Gnu Public license, but since you only want to print the images for your own business cards, not create a program with them, there isn't any licensing issue.

These images are in GIF format, but you can edit them and resize them using any good imaging tool.

To utilize the card images that you kindly posted above, will I require any special software or will they open in any usual image editor, if you know?

Thanks for your help.

I want to have a business card with my details on one side and a playing card on the other side, eg The Queen of Hearts.

I just want a business card that's little different and therefore more likely to be kept.

You only need a zip program.

You will need to unzip the zip file you that download from the site. This will result in a directory folder that contain the image files in GIF format and another directory (or directories) that contain the source code that was used to produce the image files. You don't care about the source code. Most imaging tools can load GIF files and many can be used to convert the files to other formats.
