Our love of all things playing cards, from the rarest collectibles to the most usable of decks, is an unbridled passion.  A deck of cards is a unique type of art, the ultimate fusion of form and function, and sometimes even narrative.  That so much can be incorporated into a rounded rectangle 3.5 inches tall by 2.5 inches wide is a miracle that never ceases to amaze us, and inspired us to create Curated Cards to serve both creators and supporters of the finest decks imaginable from our base in Toronto, Canada.

The overwhelming majority of our products are acquired directly from their designers, who we are proud to support in honing their craft.  Without these dedicated artisans we would all be stuck with Riderbacks, the standard Bicycle design so common that it no longer elicits any excitement from our senses.  It is our mission to help sustain these architects of wonder, enabling the custom card community to expand and thrive.

Oftentimes, some of the best decks of playing cards can be procured only in restricted numbers for a limited time via unconventional arrangements.  All of this may discourage or prevent those who would otherwise have gladly paid for the privilege of owning such works of genius from acquiring them.  That is where we come in.  The flip side of backing creators is making their creations available to the public, at least until our stock runs out.  But even if we can only offer a second chance to a finite number of playing card enthusiasts, it delights us to find loving homes for these wonderful decks.

And there you have it: the reason for our existence.  We are not some conglomerate with a warehouse full of every deck under the sun, but a niche provider of decks which offer something special, decks which we ourselves are proud to own and use.  Allow us to join you on your journey through the world of playing cards and we will do our utmost to provide personalized service to you.  Our curated selection awaits.
