KEM significant price increase coming July (1 Viewer)

A look inside the boardroom.

"Sir our sales are down over 50%."

"That's easy, just raise the price by 50%."

So you're saying I should try a few setups of Guild?
No, if you want KEM like feel and handling but don't like the price, warping or smell then buy these. They are just about the perfect cards. Shipping is expensive so buy several setups to spread out the shipping cost. I just rec'd my order and love these cards:

They're called Angel Poker but they're bridge size. These are Angel's top of the line acetate cards.

In response to the speculation that guild cards were made by Modiano, @Dix said that if they were, they were the thickest, heaviest, stiffest Modiano cards he’d ever seen.
So it seems like the only things Guild cards have in common with Kem is that they both have fronts and backs.

Are these poker/wide or narrow/bridge size?

Echo this; I love Guild but very very different, some of the stiffest cards I've felt and pretty textured too.
 
Haven’t been here for a while but when I saw the crazy prices for decks I thought I’d check in to see WTF. It’s too bad because I think they are the best out of all the brands I’ve tried (Copag, Modiano, Bicycle plastic). I was lucky enough to pick up 2 decks a few years ago for around $25 each. $60-$90 now on Amazon? I ‘ain’t paying that.

This is pure insanity - They'll go out of business eventually, and it'll be another poker memory

EDIT: Weren't they $35 a year ago? So like an 80% increase
 
Screw KEM
Fournier and DalNegro rule....
i dont like Fournier font but noticed that they print Bicycle Prestige now
and yeah...2012 WSOP Fourniers are the best cards I ever had (with standard index)

It's USPCC though. It's one of many prints they own the rights to? Or is the KEM factory still in production?

Either way, they're insane. I stay supporting @desjgn, the only cards at my home game. That blackjack index is the nuts.

Not sure exactly. KEM cards in general can't sustain a $65 price point, lol
 
Been away for a while, just seeing this. What a joke. I love the feel of Kems, but never bought many because of the warping. Their sales have to be down 75%. I also wonder what the increase to casinos was. There's no way casinos would put up with increases like that. Absolutely delusional.
