Goss developing new printer for U.S. Playing Card Co.

March 25th, 2009 | Joe Hadsall | Filed Under General

Ever since the U.S. Playing Card Co. was purchased by Jarden Corporation, things have been busy for the popular pasteboard brand. In July, the company announced the opening of a new plant in nearby Kentucky.

The latest news is that Goss International is developing a new web press printer for USPC’s playing cards. This report details how the company is upgrading its Sunday 2000 press.

Goss has a great reputation in the printing industry. Chances are the major daily newspaper in your area gets spit out from one of these behemoths. However, a new Rider Back box design has been popping up at Walmart stores, and members of magic forums have noticed that the new Riders feel different. What will a new printer mean for the beloved Bicycle brand?

    I am a little worried about this issue. Bicycle is the deck I use to perform and practice with, and if the quality decreases even a little bit, I will no longer use them for my performances. To me, they hardly fit my standards in stock quality, but they work. I always try to have a deck of masters on me when performing. If this new printer makes the quality in the cards go down, then I must say bye bye to regular bikes.
    On the same note, I think before changing the quality and stock they should of took magicians into consideration.
    On the other side, if the quality gets better and thicker, hooray for the new printer.
