Anyone have a source for something to round corners on cards that actually produce the same size and shape of a normal poker size card?
I've tried a bunch of craft store rounders but none of them produce a corner matching what cards actually have.
The only thing I've found is a link to an antique card cutting device with a $2800 price tag. It would take a lot of Svengali decks to make this payoff...

This corner rounder (has three radiuses) has served me perfectly over the years. Located on Amazon (where else?) https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0076F......TF8&th=1

Cheers!

Ditto what Rhett and Stanyon say. I got this one some time ago for custom homemade, props above and beyond playing cards. It's really high quality and so versatile, what with the three radii.

I picked one up from eLybrary (they sell a few physical items besides e-books)

https://www.lybrary.com/corner-rounder-1......406.html

Looks the same as one posted on Amazon. Nice thing is it will work on Jumbo Cards (8mm), Regular Card Corner (3mm) and you can also use 5mm to create a short rounded corner for a gaffed card.

Everyone, I received one of the Sunstar Kadomaru Pro, Corner Cutters. Here is my little assessment of it.
First, I make my own Svengali decks which I pitch, and I use bicycle stock to do this. I don't sell a lot of them, so my needs are modest.
The corners are cut perfect with this tool, and they match to a common playing card just right.
It remains to be seen how long the cutting blade will stay sharp, but I suspect I will get quite a few decks from this tool.
I couldn't really justify purchasing a commercial cutting tool even off the used market since they were 10 times the cost of this tool.
So far, I recommend this to anyone with similar needs for card gaffing.

I have a number of corner cutters purposely built for playing cards.

You have some interesting items here. Do you produce anything to cut the corners on a stack of cards?

I use the one Rhett linked above (Sunstar Kadomaru Pro from Amazon). It works great and is perfect for my modest, infrequent need of a corner rounder.
