Four Misunderstandings of Playing Card Paper

Mar. 14, 2020

When communicating with some customers, I found that they often have some misunderstandings about the paper used by advertising card manufacturers. Now let Board Game Manufacturer explain these common misunderstandings for everyone to analyze.

Misunderstanding 1: The paper gram represents the thickness and quality of the paper. Most customers believe that the gram of paper is the sole criterion for the thickness and quality of the paper. The larger the gram, the thicker the paper and the better the quality. This is clearly a misunderstanding of the grams of paper. The gram of paper is only the weight of a square meter of paper, and it is not necessarily related to the thickness and quality. For example, 280 grams of paper means that this kind of paper weighs 280 grams per square meter. The practical significance of paper grams is a method of measurement. When selling paper, it is measured by tonnage. Knowing the number of grams of paper can calculate the actual area of a meal, and it can also calculate how many advertising playing cards can be made with this meal. For poker manufacturers, it is a calculation basis for cutting materials, but it is not meaningful to customers. Because the types and materials of paper on the market are very different, and the weight of a square meter of paper of the same thickness is completely different due to the weight of the raw materials. In reality, many high-quality raw materials are very light, but heavy worse.

Misunderstanding 2: Black core paper is the best paper. The main reason for this misunderstanding is that some high-end brands on the market use black paper cores, and they mistakenly believe that black paper cores are the best. Imagine why we don't think black cotton is the best cotton? Because we are familiar with it. Everyone knows that the raw material for producing paper is nothing more than pulp made by some plants, such as wood pulp, straw pulp, straw pulp, and waste pulp made from recycled waste paper. These colors are basically not black, in most cases yellow-gray. So how can we change to black, blue, purple and other colors? The answer is: add pigment. This change will not affect the quality.

Misunderstanding 3: White cardboard is better than special paper for poker. Cards Game Manufacturers are usually used for boxes, not for playing cards. Playing cards need to be continuously shuffled during use, which requires higher elasticity and toughness of paper. Only special paper can be used. If it's just for good looking and not used, then white cardboard can be used.

Myth 4: Embossed paper is a type of paper. Embossing is a production process, not a paper type. All paper can be made into a textured paper by embossing.
