Playing Cards

Article Tools

There are numerous brands of playing cards available, and many of them enjoy trademark and / or copyright protection by their respective producers. Normally, it is the design of the Ace of Spades, the Joker, the card backs, and some Tuck Boxes (the box which holds the playing cards) that separate the different playing card brands.

Content featuring these designs may not be suitable for commercial use. With that said, these designs may not be the only that are subject to copyright and / or trademark protection. If the remainder of the deck deviates too far from the “classic” design (such as custom face cards, poker peek or other custom design elements), then those cards may also not be suitable in content for commercial use.

Content featuring playing card designs may be suitable for editorial use, depending on the context in which they appear.

Examples of playing card designs include, but are not limited to:

BICYCLE, BEE, AVIATOR, HOYLE, CLUB SPECIAL, the Rider Back Design, the Diamond Back Design, and the Goddess of Liberty are all registered trademarks of The United States Playing Card Company.
