Prints Perfectly Suited For Your Card Room

It’s the early 14th century in Europe. Trade and travel overseas and across continents is thriving, and out of Egypt emerges playing cards painted with tarot-like suits. They feature staves and swords, cups and coins… all of which can still be found on traditional Italian, Spanish and Portuguese decks.

Playing cards certainly have a rich and long history, tracing all the way back to 1377. Display your love for this timeless game with our new Playing Card Framed Prints! Exquisitely detailed, these white-on-black prints were made for that empty wall space in your card and game room, by the bar or in any entertainment center!

Greyson Place - Ace of Spades Framed Print

The ace of spades: in most packs, this card is the most ornately designed. The elegance of this card stems from the 17th century when laws were set into place requiring that this card bear the insignia of the printing house. From then on, card makers would take the time to design these beautifully intricate cards in order to best represent their business.

Greyson Place - Jack of Spades Framed Print

Did you know that the Jack card was not always called by its well-known name? In fact, as early as the mid-16th century, this card was known as the Knave, a term for a male servant of the royal family (hence why it is the lowest-ranking court card). The card was only called the Jack by commoners until 1864 when English card maker Samuel Hart published a deck with the Knave card displaying “J” instead of “Kn”… which certainly cleared up any confusion between the “K”ing and the “Kn”ave cards!
