Packaging: Tuckboxes and Deckboxes

Jeff Montgomery -


Plastic Deckboxes

We offer two clear plastic deckboxes (70 cards, 120 cards) that a customer/publisher can order at checkout.

Tuckbox Costs

Our low- and high-volume per/tuckbox production costs are below. Or, go to our Card Print Cost Calculator to get complete deck + tuckbox costs.  

Custom-printed Tuckboxes

 Tuckbox Size Low-volume Cost/Tuck (USD) High-volume Cost/Tuck (USD)
     54 cards $2.25 $1.50
     72 cards $2.50 $1.85
     90 cards $2.50 $1.85
   120 cards $2.50 $1.85
Tarot (80 cards) $2.50 $1.85
  • Offered for US Poker, Euro Poker, Tarot. (Currently, publishers can use our Poker-size tuckboxes for Bridge cards.)
  • Produced using a strong 130# silk, 14.7-pt. thickness, 350gsm card stock.
  • Feature a unique no-glue design with a double-walled back to provide extra reinforcement. The quality of our no-glue tuckboxes can withstand being even a few cards short of the tuckbox's size. So, it's OK if, say, your 115-card deck goes into the 120-card tuckbox.
  • Ships assembled with decks inserted.
  • High-volume, publisher-direct orders must meet the 5,000-card minimum. More about our high-volume pricing.
  • Shrink-wrap: You can add shrink-wrapping to high-volume deck + tuckbox orders. This is an optional add-on for $0.40/deck.

Tuckbox Production Timeline

[Updated June 2018] All orders with tuckboxes will be run on Monday, with production assembly on Wednesday/Thursday and shipment occurring on Thursday/Friday.

So, if you want to work that timeline properly, place tuckbox orders no later than Sunday at 7:00 p.m. (EST). Orders with tuckboxes placed after this time will not be processed until the following Monday.

Tuckbox Specifications and Templates

You will need to prepare your tuckbox PDF using InDesign, Illustrator, or Affinity Publisher. (Due to required specifications, use of only Photoshop to prepare/output your tuckbox PDF is not recommended.)
