Lastly and most importantly, although our artist was only 17 when we made our characters, she receives royalties for every pack of cards sold! This is an understated part of sustainability but supporting artists is something that is very important to us at The Plain Shop.

Speedy delivery, superb quality and incredible playing cards that were representational on a level I've never seen before! Would highly recommend The Plain Shop to everyone.


I purchased a pack of the Plain Decks as a gift for my dad. They are great quality and the illustrations on the cards are amazing!


I bought their cards which are amazing, the first deck of cards I’ve seen with a representation of black people! Just the best!


As a card collector I had to add their cards to my collection!


Loved the playing cards, the quality is great and hasn’t scratched after multiple uses.


Got the cards for our holiday travelling group. That’s our holiday sorted, let the games begin!


Got some cool playing cards and a colouring book that my nephew loved! Business owner was friendly and customer service was great also.


The Plain Decks are a one of a kind! I have never come across a product more representative. The customer service was also top tier. Will definitely be buying from this brand again and again!
