Tempo Playing Cards are inspired by the golden age of jazz. In the 1920s and 30s a new style of music rapidly gained popularity in the United States and artists like Bessie Smith, Cab Calloway, Ella Fitzgerald, and Billie Holiday became household names.
Designed by Michael Mateyko, each card features an Art Deco style illustration that celebrates the spirit of improvisation and musical expression.
Printed by The United States Playing Card Company on our proprietary thin-stock, each deck of Tempo playing cards come packaged in a screen-printed, embossed and foil stamped tuck case.
Our products ship through a privately owned climate-controlled warehouse in San Diego, California.
We offer a variety of shipping methods from budget-friendly to price-doesn’t-matter. You can compare estimated costs and transit times once you begin the checkout process and enter your shipping address. Carrier options may vary based on your destination.
We strive to pack and ship all items within 24 hours of each order (Monday through Friday). However, we are a small team so during peak holiday season we kindly ask that you allow 3-5 days for your items to be sent on their way. Every box shipped from Art of Play is expertly packed by actual human beings (you can see their names written on your package slip). Everyone in our warehouse is paid a fair wage and treated with respect.
We will gladly offer a refund or store credit in exchange for any items returned within 30 days of the original order, as long as the items are still sealed in new condition. We cannot accept returns of opened or used items. Return shipping is the responsibility of the customer.
