Large print playing cards

Hello, I and some friends enjoy a very friendly Rubber session, however several of us have eyesight problems and would benefit from playing with large print cards. Do you know where I can acquire a few packs please. We also wish to obtain some bidding boxes, again can you please help us with this.
Many thanks.

  • You can buy both bidding boxes and also large playing cards (as few or many packs as you wish) from the English Bridge Union. The web address is https://www.ebu.co.uk/shop but you can order on the phone if you prefer that to online at 01296 397851
  • There may be a misunderstanding here. Large playing cards are not the same as regular bridge-sized playing cards with larger printing. Playing cards come in two basic regular sizes: poker size and bridge size. Bridge cards are slightly narrower than poker cards, about 7 or 8 mm narrower. To order cards that make it easier for visually impaired people to see the cards more easily, order what is called cards with "JUMBO INDEX." Here is a link that both describes and illustrates the difference.

    Good luck!

  • The cards I suggested are for bridge and are standard size but larger than normal print.
