I never understood why people try to keep their decks looking good. The reality is that they will bend, they will fade, the edges will wear out, etc. Just buy a new pack of cards for a few bucks.


I use the clips too, but generally only for expensive decks that I don't want to replace often: Cassandra; Psychomatic; etc.
While the amount of water has remained static, the amount of Tequila and Triple Sec available for making Margaritas has expanded enormously. So you see, we have made progress after all. ~Anonymous

In the UK go to costco - a brick (12 packs) of bikes costs about £14. Use em and chuck em when they wear out. Bicycle are not the most common card in the UK - no one cares. Personally I wouldn't worry too much about getting the local brand. I have performed in India, France, Germany, Holland and the UK. No one gives a ***.

So that's my first posting here.

First of all a warm hello to you all.

I also live in Germany and use the U.S. Bicycle Cards.
Since Poker also in Germany got very popular those cards are well known over here.
Never had probs using them. No one cared.

A brick of Bicycle Standards (12 Packs) I will get for about 29 € (aprox. 27.5 $)
So it's not a big deal to use a new deck then and when.

For Piatnik card they will charge me almost twice the price.

I DIYed me a Card Press. Its easy to built out of 2 pieces of Polycarbonate (laminated plywood or aluminum should also work well) and some SS screws and winged nuts. Overall it costed me about 10 bucks and is manufactured in about an hour.

But... I don't use it quiet often. Just for my premium decks.
Every day deck goes in a clip.

Have a nice weekend.
