Playing cards come in so many different themes nowadays. After seeing some clear, see-through playing cards on Facebook I decided I needed to make my own! I went through a lot of ideas before coming up with how I wanted to put it all together and what material I wanted to use.
A version for sale on Amazon that I was trying to imitate.
Optional: I just found these blank playing cards on Amazon you could use, except they are not clear :(
During the planning process, I considered using some type of plastic or acrylic and laser cutting it out. I was disappointed when it didn't work out, but it ended up being better that it didn't. After putting stickers on the front and back of the transparency cards, the deck got pretty thick. If the material I used had been even a slightly thicker plastic, the cards would have made an unrealistically thick stack.
