I love them. I decided to buy two. One for a collection case of unopened cards I'm starting (have a ton of black friday cards coming!) and one to start learning cardistry. The one I opened I fell in love with right away. Doesn't work great for magic tricks cause people confuse the suits and they're dark. You could probably play a game of cards or poker if you wanted too. I bought them for cardistry though, and for that purpose, they are beautifully produced. They fan well, splash nicely, and seperate and stick just the way you'd want. On top of that you get two matching jokers, one blank card and a double sided. Very happy with my purchase and thank you for the creation.
