Our Story

Formed in 2008, the idea for Vintage Playing Cards came about when we found a beautiful art deco pack of playing cards which had a few cards missing.  Now useless as a game, the cards were too beautiful to throw away so we upcycled them into greeting cards.

Vintage Playing Cards now specialises in greeting cards, frames and gifts made, and inspired, from original vintage games.

Stylish, retro and unique – each Vintage Playing Card piece is a true original which is a fabulous addition to any style-conscious home.

Vintage Playing Cards has grown from a small cottage business to supplying renowned shops such as Selfridges, Liberty, Oliver Bonas and Fortnum & Mason.

Run by Tracy Kemp, the team are based in a small studio in Suffolk, where most of our products are handmade.

Vintage Playing Cards is constantly evolving with new designs and products and welcomes commissions.
