I want to print regular playing cards, with backs that I designed. Does anyone know where I could print a deck of cards for a good price with good quality cards? I only want about 50 to 100 decks to start with. Zazzle costs a bit too much for me ($20 a deck), and Bicycle doesn't give a set price.

possible duplicate of On-Demand Cards Deck printing service? – user1873 Nov 30 '13 at 21:22
I don't think he ever found good quality card printing. – Chase Nov 30 '13 at 22:02
what makes you think asking the question again will get different results? – user1873 Dec 1 '13 at 4:34
not a duplicate. on-demand and short-run have some overlap, in that he could just order 50 decks of his own game from an on-demand service, but there are companies out there that do short run printing for less money than an on demand service would charge. – Sparr Dec 1 '13 at 15:41
PS: I just added another answer to @user1873's linked question – Sparr Dec 1 '13 at 15:44

Bicycle has a custom card page:, but you must contact them for pricing. They have two tiers personalized which is 1-500 decks, or custom which is 2500+ decks.

do you know how much it would approximately cost if i ordered the 2500 decks but used my own designs for just the backs but everything else the same as regular cards? what would be cheapest way? – Chase Dec 7 '13 at 16:33
