If this isn't the correct forum, I apologize. I've made some card packets and the finishes are just slightly different. Not normally an issue, but the cards tend to stick when performing certain shuffles. Is there any card coating or treatment that will make the finishes from different decks more consistent?

Magician's fanning powder or better yet Zinc Stearate if you can find it is a good coating on cards that stick.

Fanning powder is zinc sterate. I doesn't take much.

All fanning powders are not created equal. Buyer beware!

Fanning powder can make some card handling worse. If it works for you - great! If not, and you need to use a coating or finish that makes them more slippery, try this:
