Attn: Edinburgh People!!!!

I have a horrible feeling that most of my Edinburgh readers have high-tailed it off to the States for GenCon but I'm hoping a few of you have been left behind.

Years ago I brought about 1000 blank playing cards mail order from a specialist playing card shop on Princess Street in Edinburgh. Unfortunately I can't remember it's name nor find it through Google by typing in the usual suspects (Edinburgh Princess Street Shop Playing Cards...).

I was wondering if any of you knew the shop and could either tell me it's name or even better a contact telephone number?

Much gratitude will be given in thanks!

Cheers, Angus

R. Somerville Playing Cards?

Using your search string with the correct spelling of Princes Street gets you a hit. :oP

So it is a Prince not a Princess..... that's where I think I've been going wrong all my life!!! :p

Cheers for the link. I'd give them a call tomorrow and see if they can help/how much they'll be.

Specifically, the first hit is this page, on which the shop is mentioned. The included link is old but you get redirected to the current website.

Are these blank on both sides or just backed?

You can get blank on both sides, blank fronts or blank backs. Last time I brought some I was given the choice.

The ones I need are either completely blank or just have the back of the cards with a pattern on leaving the front clear to write/draw on.

What do you use blank playing cards for? Making up your own games? Let me know if you manage to get hold of some ... I think I could do with some too.

I use them for mock-ups and testing the mechanics.

I'll let you know if I manage to get some. I got 1000 a few years ago but foolishly sold half to another friend who wanted some a couple of years later thinking I probably wouldn't need them again!

Now of course I'm having to hunt more down! :p

I want a set of blank-fronts, blank (red bicycle) backs, mostly for magic tricks. Plus a few sets blank backs for custom cardage.

You can get completly blank bridge-size (uk standard cards) in the games shop in Camden Market. Or at least you could the last time I looked.
