 Traina Design’s Borderline playing cards feature bilingual designs that depict the unique culture and colorful characters seen in and around the US/Mexican border.

Borderline: Add some más picante to your poker night

The Borderline deck was lovingly hand-crafted by Traina Design in sunny San Diego, and showcases the colorful culture and characters along the border in our backyard. The deck arrives in a stunning, custom-designed, copper-foiled box that captures the frontera spirit and inspires envy in opponents.

26 richly illustrated characters bring every game to life

Borderline includes 56 playing cards, with face cards featuring 26 unique characters that capture the rich personalities from both sides of the border. Instead of the typical kings, queens and jacks, there are bikers, luchadores, Hollywood starlets, Mexican señoritas, small town sheriffs and federales. All our colorful characters turn the average card game into an unforgettable trip across the border.

Risks and challenges

The design of the full deck and box is complete and final. The photos seen here are from a prototype we created. Actual cards will be printed by the US Playing Card Company, and may vary slightly due to their printing process and requirements. For example, the cards will be printed on a denser paper stock, the profile of the box may be slightly thinner, and colors may appear richer than what is seen in these photos. We will make every effort to ensure that the changes and discrepancies are minimized from what is shown.

Uncut Sheets: These ship unframed. We will take every precaution to safely pack these, however minor scuffs, scratches, or creases may occur at the far edges of the sheets. These blemishes are unavoidable and are typically covered after item is framed/mounted.

Thank you!
