The easy and fun personalized wedding favor your guests will actually use
When Aaron Sacks was sixteen years old, he fantasized about starting his own arcade. It was a little out of reach at the time so he decided to create custom playing cards. He distributed a deck of souvenir cards at his brother Jacob’s bar mitzvah, which everyone loved—and You’re On Deck was born.
Now a family-owned business that was relaunched in 2018 by Aaron’s father, David Sacks, You’re On Deck offers completely customizable playing cards that are perfect for weddings, engagements and other events. Customers can even invent their own card game using You’re On Deck if they’re looking to have a particularly fun and creative event. It’s possible to print images on their playing cards on both sides or just one side and they offer next-level customization so customers can create exactly what they need.
You’re On Deck playing cards are printed on 300gsm heavy coated card stock and include a plastic UV coating that allows the cards to hold up after many hours of play. The cards are poker size at 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches. All orders include free shipping and high-quality plastic boxes to keep your customized decks in good condition when they are not in use. The cards are produced just miles from Delray Beach, Florida, where You’re On Deck is based.
What’s special about playing cards, David Sacks believes, is that they’re a unique keepsake. “Playing cards are like a functional photo album,” he says. “But they can be used to tell a story over and over again.” That’s what makes them ideal for weddings and engagements. People are more likely to pull out a pack of playing cards and talk about those memories than they are to take down a photo album and flip through it.
Early on in the business’s relaunch, they were approached by a gentleman who wanted cards printed for his upcoming wedding. He was upfront and told the You’re On Deck team that he’d been rejected by other vendors for this project. “My first thought was they must want something objectionable or trademarked printed on the cards,” explains David, but it was actually because the man was gay and it was a same-sex wedding. The You’re On Deck team immediately took on the project.
David recommends custom playing cards as a fun addition to any wedding or the events surrounding a wedding that a couple might have, such as a bachelor/bachelorette party or a wedding shower. One You’re On Deck customer created a story out of their playing cards to show who they were as a couple leading up to the wedding. “On every card was a different picture taken as a couple leading up to this day,” David says. Another couple gave their playing cards as favors to thank their wedding guests and included photos from their day.
Custom playing cards are an easy way to add flavor to your wedding favors or engagement parties and with so many options, you can make them completely your own. And your guests will definitely remember playing Go Fish the night before your wedding with cards that have you and your partner’s faces on them.
