Print quality and materials

Solidity, ecology and design. Dal Negro’s playing cards provide the utmost experience in card gamesin both private and professional contexts, thanks to the careful selection of raw materials and the greatest care taken in all phases of printing: the result of a perfect synergy between the experience of master craftsmen and the latest technology in production techniques.

PVC or card?

Depending on your needs, Dal Negro’s playing cards are produced in:
Duplex card > standard, lightweight and easy to handle card;
Triplex card > typical Italian quality, especially for regional playing cards, a slightly stiffer and heavier card;
PVC > unsurpassed for lightness, softness and durability, for professional use (in gaming rooms and casinos), suitable for high speed mixing and dealing.

Regardless of the material used, all Dal Negro’s playing cards are printed on single sheets to which a layer of water-based ecological ink is applied. This technique enhances the brightness of the colors, increasing card sheen and resistance making them less prone to marks and more resistant to repeated handling. High quality professional-use cards undergocalendering and linen-effect treatments. In the final phase, the sheets are divided into bands and cut into individual cards, corners are rounded off and finished packs of cards are then placed into coloured boxes. Attention to detail results in unsurpassed quality.
