Poker card is familiar to us, but not everyone knows how it is made. Today I will introduce the production of playing cards.Playing card making processA set of custom poker cards must go through printing, grouting, drying, calendering, oiling, die cutting, sub-inspection and packaging at least. Generally speaking, poker printing includes the following 15 steps (different factories may have different steps): 1) Arrange 54 poker card designs into 6x9 (54) or 7x8 (56) size. Because some playing cards need to be printed with 55 or 56 cards, the extra 1 or 2 cards are generally calendars or other advertising information. The paper is also cut to the corresponding size of 6x9 (54) or 7x8 (56). 2) Four-color front and back printing, and quality inspection. After printing, it is necessary to enter the next process after the ink is fully absorbed by the paper according to the ink absorption characteristics of the paper. 3) Filling and drying on the front;
4) Filling and drying on the reverse side. Filling is an important process in the production of poker. The so-called "filling" is to apply a solution mixed with starch and other viscous chemical components to the poker paper evenly through a roller. This is because any paper will always show the symptoms of "bumps and bumps" under the microscope, and poker requires the paper to be very flat to ensure sufficient smoothness, and "filling" can make it flat. Because there is water in the slurry, it needs to be dried at a medium high temperature of 70 to 80 degrees. 5) Steel roll extrusion. Because the promotional playing cards is thicker and consists of three or more layers, if you don't squeeze it, it will happen that the front and back of the playing cards will separate after playing for a long time. Ten years ago, domestic poker often had the situation where the front and back were separated, but now this problem has been completely solved in large-scale production plants. The extrusion effect is better after "filling". 6) Glazing. The glazing process refers to coating (or spraying or printing) a layer of colorless and transparent paint on the surface of the printed matter. After leveling, drying, calendering, and curing, a thin and uniform transparent bright layer is formed on the surface of the printed matter to enhance The smoothness of the surface of the carrier and the finishing function of protecting the printed graphics. The glazing process has become an important means of finishing the poker after printing. It not only makes the poker pattern look more exquisite, but more importantly, it is an important process for forming the poker's moderate smooth feel. The glazing of poker should be determined according to the paper. If the glazing is over, the poker will be too slippery, and a pair of pokers will easily slip when stacked; if the glazing is not enough, the poker will be too harsh and the cards will not be washed well and cannot be inserted. (Note: It is now after the four-color printing, the varnish is applied. The brightness and smoothness of the poker are related to the type of varnish used.) 7) Embossed texture. The cloth pattern effect can make the poker look more high-end, and many advertising poker customers want cloth pattern effect. The cloth pattern machine consists of two parallel steel rollers. When the poker paper passes, the texture on the steel roller is pressed onto the paper to form a cloth pattern effect. (Note: Embossing is the first process, which is the process of processing the paper before the poker is printed.) 8) Perfume. Some customers need poker to have a special fragrance, especially some food or cosmetic advertising poker. 9) Die cutting and sorting once. Cut 54 poker cards of poker horizontally into 6 pieces (6x9, 54 cards) or 7 pieces (7x8, 56) through a die cutting machine; then cut longitudinally into 9 pieces (6x9, 54 cards) or 8 pieces (7x8, 56), and Automatic sorting, forming an arrangement with the king at the top and the little king at the bottom. At the same time, carry out quality inspection. The corners of the poker at this time are still rectangles instead of rounded corners, and the poker is larger than the final 57x87mm. 10) Secondary die cutting. Put the die-cut and sorted poker into the electric 57x87mm round corner die-cutting knife to form the final poker core that meets the specifications. 11) Poker inner core shrink packaging. The 54 inner cores of a pair of poker are shrink-wrapped with plastic paper through the packaging machine. After the inner core is heat-shrinked, it is convenient for packaging and moistureproof. (Note: Generally, it is packaged with self-shrinking plastic film, thermal shrinkage will deform the poker and make it uneven) 12) Printing poker boxes, glazing and pasting poker boxes. 13) Put the poker core into the poker box, shrink it, and add gold drawing. The golden drawing is the same as the drawing on the outside of the cigarette box, making it easy for users to open. (Note: This does not need to be heat shrinkable, the heat shrinkable film is not transparent, not shiny, and the effect is not good) 14) Shrink pack every 10 pairs of poker. Shrink packaging again is to facilitate inventory, but also to facilitate quick packaging to corrugated boxes. (Note: There are 10 sets in China and 12 sets in foreign countries.) 15) Packed in a corrugated carton. At the same time, inventory, storage, shipment
