MINT represents a fresh approach to classic playing card design that radiates elegance, class, and luxury. The modern design pattern evokes the decks that have survived the test of time and the cards contain a number of secret features for the clever to take advantage of.
A Merger of Form & Function
After we established the look, we focused on the feel. The true mark of a card is how it handles. Mint is printed by the United States Playing Card Company on the highest quality card stock available. Each card coated is with the legendary Air Cushion Finish to provide for the smoothest spread, fans, and shuffles. Your hands deserve nothing but the best.
For Magicians, by Magicians
MINT was created from the ground up with practitioners of sleight of hand and magic in mind. The deck features a groundbreaking marking system and each pack also includes several powerful gaff cards.
The MINT design offers a graceful balance between modern and classic playing card design. It's a classy look while still coming across as a completely ordinary pack of cards.
Intuitive Marking System
The MINT Marking system is incredibly subtle, yet easy to read. It's based on a clock design so if you can read the time, you can read the MINT markings.

Premium Card Quality
MINT is printed by the US Playing Card Company on premium card stock and air cushion finish. The cards have that perfect snap and spread like butter. Higher quality cards do not exist.
Bonus Gaff Cards
Each deck includes an extra double backer, and double facer card. These gaff cards can be incredibly powerful tools for the magician.
The extra thin white borders that frame the MINT design help create more aesthetic spreads and fans.
The MINT Marking System
Mint playing cards are a tool; and like great magic, they hide their best kept secret in plain sight. An innovative marking system opens up and endless world of possibilities. The system is perfectly camouflaged by the Mint design and is dead simple to read if you know what to look for. If you can read a clock, you can read the Mint Marking System.
