    KEM Playing Cards Reviews



    Great cards that stand the test of time.
    by Trent Rockport @ 10, Jun 2007

    Price: 5/5 Appearance: 5/5 For Poker: 5/5 For Magic: 1/5

    I bought a set of Kem bridge cards for playing poker and they're great, well worth the additional cost over plastic coated cards. They stay clean, they don't deform as easily as other brands and they shuffle nicely. I should also mention I purchased them on eBay and they are used decks made in 1951.
     

    best cards in my point of view
    by Jack @ 02, May 2007

    Price: 3/5 Appearance: 5/5 For Poker: 5/5 For Magic:N/A

    I think these are the best cards I have ever played with.. I got lucky getting 2 decks for 8 bucks at a special sale.. Thery are so nice to shuffle, dont ever get curly like and just have an awesome feel to them.. I've been playin with bycicles, cheap plastic cards, and plastic coated cards before and i have to say that these are an improvement.. Its just like the difference between an 11,5g composite chip and a paulson clay chip!! awesome (they are pricey though and that will be the reason why i will play with bycicles again when these are worn)
     

    Great Cards

    Great quality cards. They have great snap and feel. A little slippery and hard to handle on a hard table, but are perfect on felt. They are a good deal because they last a lot longer than paper cards.
     

    Kem cards
    by barnzee @ 05, Dec 2005

    Price: 3/5 Appearance: 3/5 For Poker: 5/5 For Magic: 1/5

    Kem cards are good for one thing- abuse! these virtualy indestructable cards are very durable and hardy, making them 'poker-proof' and therefore not susceptible to crimps,etc. The major downfall of these cards is the fact that they are appauling for magic and even worse when it comes to flourishes. A good buy for poker as they last say 15 times longer than a paper deck at the table.(Bit pricey though!)
     

    I just bought some

    Price: 5/5 Appearance: 5/5 For Poker: 5/5 For Magic:N/A

    I just purchased a set of new Kem cards. These are not original Kem's I was told these are ones that have been manufactured by the company that has bought them out. This is my first set of "plastic" cards, I usually would go to the local Wal_mart and just purchase the WPT cards they had on sale there. I can't complain about the quality of these cards they don't crease or stick up when people take the peeks at their cards they hold up well when purposly abused. For my first set I will say these are what I was looking for when I purchased them.
     

    KEM/COPAG
    by PalmImports @ 24, Apr 2005

    Price: 4/5 Appearance: 4/5 For Poker: 4/5 For Magic: 3/5

    Weve been a master distributor for KEM and currently handle COPAG. Kem will be available as of June this year since the equipment to make em was bought by a US company. Theyve had ALOT of problems with the EPA and ink-- but theyre going to be made once again. THe problem we find is this: theyre too expensive and... in our opinion, COPAG cards are every bit as good- if not better-- and MUCH less expensive. Joe
     

    KEM Cards
    by TuTone @ 09, Mar 2005

    Price: 4/5 Appearance: 5/5 For Poker: 5/5 For Magic: 2/5

    I have been using these cards for about a year now. The casino I dealt at used them and I purchased two setups of them for my home games. They are a bit pricey but if you think about it you'll go through about 20 - 30 decks in the time that these would wear out. So it's actually a great investment for anyone that plays poker ofter. Or any other card game for that matter. These cards are definately a must have for poker. I recommend them. ;)
     

    KEM Cards

    Price: 3/5 Appearance: 4/5 For Poker: 5/5 For Magic: 1/5

    I deal at a local club that offer’s Texas Hold’em, we use arrow KEM's, they are extremely nice for poker and as a dealer of poker, because they will not get bad bows in them. I can abuse the crap out of these things as I shuffle, I also don't have to worry about people trying to put punches or crimps in them because that will not work they don't tare they break. Another good thing is because they are plastic they can be washed if they get extremely dirty, If we used paper there we would probably go though about a deck a weak considering the amount of poker that is played, with KEM’s they will out last 50 decks of paper maybe more in this situation. So if you are interested in having a great deck for poker I suggest these. Your initial investment might be higher but you will save over time.
     

    Good choice for poker
    by Shadow @ 09, Feb 2005

    Price: 4/5 Appearance: 5/5 For Poker: 5/5 For Magic: 2/5

    The main advantage of these 100% plastic cards is that they last much longer than regular cards (you can even wash them). So the high price is balanced by the lifetime. There are many different back designs - everyone can chose the one he likes. The cards are printed and cut really perfectly. KEMs are great for playing poker. They can be handled easily. However for flourishes or magic it's better to use regular cards but I know much worse cards for manipulation.
     

    KEM Cards

    Price: 4/5 Appearance: 4/5 For Poker: 5/5 For Magic: 1/5

    I have been handling playing cards since I was a little kid. Most packs I've owned have been relatively cheap, I didn't get my first expensive pack of KEMs until recently. They are expensive but they last so long that they are worth it. The KEM cards look good, the appearance is crisp and detailed. They are probably the best cards in terms for quality for poker. These cards are not good for flourishes, The plastic finish is too slippery and the flexibility does not feel right. If you are looking for poker cards then these are for you. If you are looking for a deck of cards for card tricks then you are probably better off going with Bicycles or Bees.
     


     

    Our thoughts on the KEM Playing Cards


    KEM cards are outstanding for playing poker. I don't know of a better card for poker games. Magicians do not seem to like them for card tricks and flourishes because of the plastic feel. Poker players should definitely consider getting a deck of KEMs. Those doing card tricks may want to invest in a deck of Bikes or Bees instead.

    Price Comparisons for KEM Playing Cards


    KEM cards are much more expensive than other brands. There is a saying that you get what you pay for and with KEM cards you get a lot. They seem to last forever unlike other brands of cards.

    KEM Playing Cards Appearance


    KEM cards come in all different styles of backgrounds. The Ace of Spades is clearly marked with the Made in USA label and the 800 number.

    KEM Playing Cards Flourish and Magic Quality


    KEM cards are not all that great for card tricks. These plastic cards just do not have the same feel as some of the paper cards like Bicycles and Bees.

    KEM Playing Cards Poker Quality


    Made from cellulose-acetate, KEM cards are the best in tough and flexible plastic cards. KEM cards are among the best for poker. They are super durable and flexible. KEM cards seem to last forever. They are difficult to mark and they can take a lot of wear. Staying crisp and flexible for years, KEM cards are the benchmark for quality. The average life of KEM cards is much longer than that of non-platic cards. KEM cards can even be washed.

    Paisley Bridge Kem Cards

    A friend of mine recently gave me KEM cards as a gift and I can verify that they do indeed last a long time. In the forum we have videos showing how flexible they are when compared to non plastic cards.
