The Femme Deck

Following on the huge success of our previous projects where we used high gloss, touch and feel printing technology to playing cards, which has had such widespread appeal and have definitely grown way above our expectations, we have been working altogether again on creating another card deck concept.

While there are many playing card designs out there, there seemed to be not that many decks in the industry using softer tones such as pastel colors which is a surprise. The Femme deck is a concept deck inspired by beauty, femininity, love and romance. We finalized on pink and mint colors which were chosen carefully from research of reports of popular colors which could represent this concept. The outcome of using the combination of these colors with raised high gloss embossing with metallic printing technology are absolutely beautiful and we're proud to share it with everyone. We introduce to you, the all new Impressions Foil Femme Playing Cards.

With an added "touch and feel" dimension to a well-established product, which we introduced to the gaming industry, feeling the touch of the cards is an exciting experience in itself.

The astoundingly shiny foil back playing cards with raised UV printing is the first of its kind in the playing cards industry. What's more, they can very much be played with like a normal CMYK printed deck and with superb performance. We have had countless number of testing of prototypes. Keeping these cards true as a deck of cards, we are using professional playing cards grade air pocketed paper card stock (linen) with a black core center layer.

Developing this deck is possible only through our skilled workforce and dedication to do what others have not done before. The knowledge that our mother company QP Group has acquired in its 33 years history and its ongoing investments in the latest technology, manufacturing methods and people have allowed us to create this exceptionally special Impressions Foil range.

Technology

The technology used behind our Impressions Foil Femme Playing Cards is a mix of traditional manufacturing methods plus state of the art secondary process industrial machinery. In short, we apply embossed gloss UV using pinpoint accuracy on state of the art machinery onto a layer of thin foil on the complex card back design which produces the outstandingly attractive and shiny metallic card back look.

The high gloss is very different to traditional spot UV as this revolutionary technology can produce a raise of up 250 microns in polymer height (which is Braille). We can also control the density of polymer applied, which is a ground breaking technology in printed materials.

Our signature high gloss UV is widely acclaimed due to its glossiness and characteristics to enable players to touch and feel the cards. Reaching 99GU gloss, which is the highest possible on printed material, giving the foil layer an extra shine, further strengthening the metallic shine experience.

Handling

We believe that playing cards is definitely an art, but at the same time, we don’t want to just create an art piece. We at MPC make sure that all cards that we produce are absolutely playable and would offer an exceptional handling experience for those of us who need it such as magicians and cardistry enthusiasts. You can see how they perform in the project video.

Design

On releasing playing cards under our MPC brand, we also developed our own unique playing card design to go with it. Our signature back consists of a symmetrical illustration of a fully grown tree.

We need trees to make paper and as a responsible paper product manufacturer and print company, QP devotes endless resources to help create a better environment by enforcing recycling efforts and expanding usage of recycled materials on mass productions. We have chosen a tree design to remind ourselves of our roots and values. The card face of these Impressions Foil cards adopts a standard design for practicality. All artwork were fully redrawn to create this design unique to MPC.

The Femme decks comes in colors pink and mint tree back, making it the perfect addition to your collection and more importantly, can become your everyday deck of cards for entertainment and performance.
