Playing Cards

The playing cards on Zazzle are Bicyle brand poker size playing cards.  They are made of a durable semi-gloss material.  These make great gifts.  You can customize them with photos of favorite hobbies or you can add a text message to the back of the cards.  Here is a set that I made as a gift for my son-in-law with a Monkey Bar logo on it.

Dartboards are regulation size 18 inches in diameter and 1 inch thick.  They come with 6 brass darts and are finished with an aluminum frame and hanging hook.  This dartboard I made has a photo I took of Round Island lighthouse in Michigan. This lighthouse is found just off of Mackinac Island.  i took the photograph from the ferry going over to the island. This dartboard would be great for a recreation room with a lighthouse and coastal thee.

Zazzle puzzles come in two different sizes 8x10 and 10x 14.   These puzzles are made of sturdy cardboard and are mounted on clipboard.  I can see one of the puzzles with a favorite photo of a child or grandchildren as a great gift for a grandparent.  They also make great mementos from trips.   Here is one I made of a photo I took of the US Capitol  building in Washington DC.  We got there early on a Sunday morning and I was able to capture the photo without a lot of people in the picture.  The partly cloudy morning worked well to capture the reflection in the water in front of the capitol.

  1. These are really neat! I love being able to customize games and I appreciate you bringing them to my attention so I could "play" too. I think the puzzles are probably my favorites simply because it seems appropriate to have pretty pictures on a puzzle, but I love the playing cards too. Really cool! Thank you Mary Beth

  2. Jigsaw puzzles and playing cards are two of my favorite 'toys'! I love both activities and indulge in them frequently! Having customized playing cards are especially fun because you can select the exact theme that fits anyone on your gift list. I've been thinking of putting a picture of my brother's much loved Boston Terrier on a deck of playing cards for his birthday, since we play cards together at least once a week and Abbi, the Boston Terrier, spends the whole evening bringing us her Kong to throw so she can be part of our get-togethers too. :)

  3. Thanks for featuring my Angel playing cards. will be doing puzzles too!

  4. Fun stuff. I need to put some photos on puzzles.

  5. well it looks like I need to explore Zazzle a little more! I had no idea about the puzzles (or I had forgotten) and wasn't aware there were dart boards either! love these
