Knowledge of Cards

The modern professional factories of publishing card decks use professional cardstocks and techniques.

現代專業紙牌工廠都使用專業的材質和制造工藝。


As for the cardstock, generally speaking, all tarot decks and playing cards use black-core paper which is specifically for printing cards. This type of cardstock produced by the German company, Kohler, is superior, followed by France, and after that the particular cardstock produced in China. The Chinese cardstock is divided into black-core paper and blue-core paper. The black core is better than the blue core. This kind of paper has the advantages of good elasticity, high density, no deformation, durability, and comfortable use. But some factories will trick the clients into using low-cost coated paper. Compared to the black-core paper, coated paper has poor elasticity and durability, low density, easy deformation, and it is uncomfortable to use. There are some companies not specifically for publishing tarot decks using coated paper; this is an act which lacks profession.

材質方面,通常塔羅牌和撲克牌都應該使用卡牌專用的黑芯撲克紙。這種紙以德國科勒公司生產出來的最優,法國產的次之,再次就是中國生產的卡牌專用紙。中國生產的卡牌專用紙又分為黑芯紙、藍芯紙等。其中黑心紙質量最優,藍芯紙次之。這種卡牌專用紙的優點在於彈性好、密度高、不易變形、比較耐用,使用起來手感舒適。但是一些工廠會哄騙客戶使用成本低廉的銅版紙,相較於卡牌專用黑心紙來說,銅版紙彈性差、密度低、容易變形、不耐用,使用起來手感不舒服。也有一些不是專門出版塔羅牌的公司使用銅版紙印刷塔羅牌,這都是不專業的表現。


As for the surface treatment, a smooth and wear resistant surface treatment should be used for shuffling the decks. Usually, the professional factories are able to do that, but some fail to control the quality. But the ones not specifically for printing cards are not capable of applying this technique, which makes the cards short-life.

表面處理方面,卡牌由於經常洗牌,必須使用光滑並且耐磨的表面處理。通常專門生產卡牌的工廠都是能做到的,但是一些工廠的品質把控不好。那些不是專門出版塔羅牌的公司則沒有這種表面處理,導致紙牌更加不耐用。
