Water based paint is carefully applied to the back of a blank card. A thin layer of lacquer is then sprayed on, to ensure the paint does not chip off. The card is then immediately put under pressure to prevent it from bending due to the liquids. This is done quickly and with precision fifty-two times to complete a whole deck of cards.

The cards are then left for 24 hours under pressure. Finally fanning powder is applied to the deck to enhance handling before being placed in a custom hand drawn tuck box. All blank materials are manufactured by the USPCC. Hand Drawn Cards are available on the shop page.
