Although these are produced by the U.S. Playing Card Company they do not match the ones used on
USPCC decks exactly. These seals say "Genuine Playing Cards" instead of "THE U.S. PLAYING CARD
COMPANY" (as shown in the photo).
These are definitely close enough to pass casual
inspection but if you want exact duplicates of offical seals, DO NOT BUY.

OK, they are not the "Offical" seal. So if you are planning to try to get into a Poker Tournament
you will get found out and in major trouble.
But for magic, I have never had anyone
challenge them. Do be aware they come in colors, and make sure they match the decks you will be
using.I use the black.
I'm use mine for an effect that has me make a false back for a box
with a Double face card and the seal is cut out- so what is said on the seal is no issue.
Good to have in the toy box for those Ah HA! moments.

As of this writing USPCC has gotten pretty paranoid about their copyrights. You can't get gaffs that
alter the standard "rider back," and you definitely aren't going to get seals that say "THE U.S.
PLAYING CARD COMPANY" which you could go slap on any deck. The previous reviewer is correct that
this is bothersome for perfectionists, but it is going to fly right past laymen. I've even gotten
the comment "but the deck was still sealed," so they clearly looked at the seal and had no issue
These are the standard size, which is nice; if you peel off the old seal and
re-seal with this, there isn't going to be any exposed "sticky area" to give you away. Be sure to
press firmly and hold for a few seconds. I also recommend that you leave in the advertising cards
etc., which is a nice subtlety; and using this with the Wonder Sealer for a truly convincing
"factory sealed" deck.
Some magicians have taken to printing their own seals, but for this
trivial price, the convenience of buying these is well worth it to me.
These stickers are usefull, but you can easily avoid having to use them if you carefully take the
seals of your personal decks. In this way, you recycle and can keep using them.

These are junk. I am highly disappointed. They say genuine playing cards.
They do Not say u.s.
Playing card company. I sent an email about it to penguin magic and they said they would refund me
if I paid to ship them back. I paid $6 to ship something that cost them $2 to ship. Then I would
have to ship it back. Having $8 in them and they would have the labels back. So I took a $20 loss
but still have the labels if I can ever find a use. Maybe some spectators wouldn't notice but I
notice and so would another magician. Total waste of money and disappointment with penguin magic.
